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.
One of the easiest—and most attractive—ways to bring an antique kitchen island firmly into the 21st century is to top the piece with a sleek surface, such as a marble, granite or stainless steel countertop. Because of their age, antique pieces may not exactly measure up to standard counter height (and for many, that's part of its charm). An easy fix, though, is to add casters or feet to the bottom, or consider increasing the thickness of the countertop.
And believe it or not, white comes is a range of hues (a variety of different shades can still be considered "white") including everything from beige to a creamy-toned hue. Homeowners who choose white kitchen islands are often seeking to complete the overall look of a minimalist kitchen or they are simply looking to add a piece that helps balance an otherwise bold space.
