Worktop Express Blog > How to Style White Kitchen Worktops

White kitchen worktops are a popular choice thanks to their timeless appeal and clean look. They’re known for reflecting natural light, making your kitchen feel brighter and look more spacious. When looking to add one to your kitchen, there are various style options available, and it can be challenging to choose a look that you’ll love for years to come. In this blog, we take you through some of our top tips and style suggestions for making white worktops work in your home.

White on White

For the ultimate modern aesthetic, combine a stunning surface like our White Glass Effect worktop with pure white units and gold handles to create a contemporary kitchen. Alternatively, for a sleek look, combine white kitchen worktops with white handless units.


If the all-white look is too bright for you, why not try a two-tone kitchen? Combine light grey cabinets with a glistening white surface, like our Pure White worktops, and matching splashbacks for a minimalistic look that will last for years to come.

Add a Splash of Colour

A white worktop can sometimes be seen as a dull and cold option. To combat this, incorporate some colour into your kitchen to bring it to life. Start with coloured accessories, such as small appliances and decorative items like bowls and fruit — this will add depth and layers to your kitchen. Alternatively, if you have a kitchen island, try painting the cabinets a bright colour to break up the room and add some character to your cooking space.

Add Patterns

Patterns are a great way to add character and complement white kitchen worktops. Splashbacks in particular are a stylish and practical way to do this. Our Marble Veneto Zenith splashbacks are a beautiful choice that gives your kitchen a luxurious and modern look. If you want to enhance your white worktop with a pattern, make sure you browse our range of patterned kitchen splashbacks for a wide variety of styles.

Warm Up With Wood

If an all-over white kitchen isn’t for you, try adding wooden features to the room for a warmer feeling. You can do this easily by adding wooden shelving, stools and accessories. Alternatively, if you are planning a larger update to your kitchen, consider adding a wooden worktop on a breakfast bar or kitchen island for a contemporary mixed-material look.
