I hate my countertops, diva. But I am not entirely sure what to do about it. I’ve thought about replacing it with granite, but I want something in white. Unfortunately I am not finding anything available in white granite here locally. Worse, I’ve heard that granite isn’t as popular as it once was. Is there something that comes with different white colors that is as strong as granite, but might hold its value a little longer? Help!

Kim, I do have some thoughts here that might help. Have you considered using white quartz countertops for kitchens instead of a white granite? As you can see here, going with a white quartz vs granite for your countertops translates into plenty of new color choices.

White Quartz Countertops For Kitchens

White quartz countertops are made from slabs of natural stone then engineered as natural quartz with five percent polymer resins. Another feature with white quartz countertops are the offering of warranty protection. Yes, they’re so strong and so heat-resistant that you will find most quartz countertops come with a solid warranty to protect your new kitchen addition.

Easier to get installed by qualified pros, endless edging options and with its low maintenance, going with a white quartz countertop in kitchens these days is clearly a no-brainer. Despite the price continuing to drop on this countertop option, you will be relying on a skilled installer to get things put together in a way that will work for your needs.

Availability? If you live near a Home Depot or Lowes, chances are excellent you will be able to find a white quartz countertop in a style that fits without your kitchen’s theme.

Do you have questions about the selecting or the installation of: tile, carpet or wall treatments (window blinds, etc)? Then email me your tale of woe (diva(at) and perhaps I will be able to answer your questions right here at the Home Makeover Diva Blog.
