A kitchen island is a great functional addition to your kitchen, adding counter space and storage. It's both a place to prepare food and a place to gather with friends and family. Islands are also decorative, tying the room together. Match your island to your surrounding cabinets for a cohesive look, or have some fun with your decor and choose contrasting island cabinetry to break up the space and add visual interest. Can't decide which style is right for you? Here are our helpful tips for choosing the perfect island for your kitchen.
When it comes to kitchen design, traditional doesn't mean boring. A soft white island adds a clean, calming color to the space. The neutral look can also easily mix with other cabinetry in your space, even if they have a different design, color or finish. You can also go for a classy traditional look in a rich mahogany wood.
For a rustic look, go for a more casual style and a natural cherry wood. This earth tone look will bring warmth to your decor, making your kitchen feel inviting.
An industrial-style kitchen is well suited for a more simple structure. A dark cabinet color with a straightforward design is sleek, and despite the bold color, it won't detract from other decorative features around your kitchen.
A modern style goes best with clean lines and stainless steel features and allows you to play with color if you want to mix things up.
