White Quartz Countertops with White Cabinets
The combination of quartz countertops with white cabinets is one of the classiest and most popular combinations in homes across the U.S. While natural stones, like granite countertops, have their own varieties of white and can look great in combination with white kitchen cabinets, there are plenty of quartz countertops that will look even better.

If you love white cabinets but feel that an all-white kitchen is not for you, consider pairing white quartz countertops with a two-toned set of cabinets — gray and white, where white cabinets shine from the top of the kitchen and gray cabinets elegantly ground this sophisticated and modern design.
The Best Backsplash for White Quartz Countertops
People who love the look of quartz, usually love its cleanliness, subtlety, and sophistication. When choosing the perfect backsplash to combine with quartz countertops and kitchen cabinets, you can choose between the two most popular options — going for an all-white kitchen completed with a white backsplash or choose a backsplash that will feature a pop of color and create an accent in the kitchen.
Choosing an all-white kitchen design is a very popular option in recent years. White cabinets, white quartz countertops, and white backsplash provide a fresh, bright, almost ethereal look in the kitchen. If your heart and soul are set on an all-white kitchen, and you have already chosen white quartz for the countertops, we recommend choosing white quartz for the backsplash as well.
However, whatever the color of your cabinets, you can use white quartz for both countertops and backsplash to achieve a consistent look. This will save you money as most quartz fabricators will give deals but more importantly, you will create a true piece of art with an amazing flow.
The next are a few examples.
