Because of its coloring, White Ice works well in cool-toned kitchens, such as the eclectic airy culinary space below. Note the grey walls, which beautifully complement the stone. [photo from Andrea West Design via Houzz]

Yet it’s not always about steely hues. Dark wooden tones add a dash of high contrast to kitchens featuring white granite, as shown below. [photo from Sticks + Stones Design Group]

In fact, surrounding your White Ice countertops with dark neutrals really makes the stone pop, as shown in this next image featuring a high-contrast kitchen. [photo from Equalicare]

Dark cabinetry can also create a strong contrast, and even kitchens with golden tones can make White Ice work if need be. The key is sticking with cooler and/or darker tones in the areas immediately surrounding the granite countertops. [photo from Re:New Architecture]
