Best White Quartz Countertops
You guys! The kitchen is really coming along, it’s crazy what a few small changes can make. After completing the demo of some upper cabinets and the tiled counters last week, the new countertops and kitchen sink have been installed! I’m already loving them and can’t believe what an impact this alone has made. I searched for ages to find my favorite, neutral white quartz countertops and am excited to share that information with you here!

Best White Quartz Countertops
Choosing neutral colors in my home is really important to me – it prevents things from feeling too warm, too cold, or taking on shades of pink or green in certain light. I know I can’t be the only one who has carefully chosen a color, painted the wall, only to regret it later when the sun hits it just so…

When choosing kitchen elements, I like to start with one specific element and build from there. In this case, I knew I wanted black cabinets (Iron Ore, actually) which meant I wanted some counter top contrast. I briefly considered butcher block but since I’m doing wood shelves, I wanted to include another element, and landed on quartz.
But which quartz? There are so.many.options. I needed something that wasn’t too cool with blue undertones or too warm with flecks of gold or pink. After some research and a few trips, erm, a few dozens trips to various design stores, I landed on Silestone Consentino in Et Satuario in the Suede finish which I think is one of the best white quartz countertops options out there!
I’ve worked with Silestone quartz in the past (I used Desert Silver in my last kitchen) and really love the quality and availability. For this project, I went with a Et Statuario which is a neutral white with a little bit of natural looking veins and movement. It comes in a “polished” or “suede” finish – I opted for suede since I love the matte look in kitchens.
I’ve found Consentino quartz to be really accessible – some of the lines and colors are even available at Home Depot & Costco! I ordered mine directly from a countertop supplier but know it’s available at many local building supply stores. Next week, I’m excited to share the cabinet painting progress, stay tuned!
Kitchen Update To-Do List
Demolish the current tiled counter tops & back splash Remove some of the upper cabinets Replace counter tops with Silestone Consentino in Et Statuario in Suede finish Replace sink with Blanco Silgranit in Cinder (this will be my second Blanco sink, I just love them!)
- Paint cabinet bases and replace cabinet doors & drawer fronts (I’m using Iron Ore)
- Update kitchen stove with Kitchen Aid Gas Stove
- Install tile back splash and entire wall (I haven’t decided yet, but this previous backsplash tile post has some good white tile options!)
- Make oak shelves for floating shelving with Black Brackets (p.s. this is my brother’s bracket business and I work with him there!)
- Replace light above sink with cute pendant light – I’m undecided but this one is a good option!
