White countertops often get a reputation for being high-maintenance. Stark-white surfaces are known for showing every crumb or being more prone to show a stain. That's not necessarily the case, though. Keep in mind that the look of your countertop depends largely on the type of surface you use, from stone and stone-look countertops to solid wood options.
Of course, a white kitchen island might also be achieved by painting wood cabinetry with a white wash stain or adding a white marble countertop to a dark wood cabinet base. These additions provide a soft touch to an otherwise rustic or rich wood surface.
Sleek surfaces, clean-lined cabinets, brushed-metal (or hidden) drawer pulls—these are some of the tell-tale signs of a modern kitchen island. But don't let these contemporary design elements limit your imagination.
