Macy Guillemot. Kitchen Islands. November 08th , 2017.
Try using a bright citrus or playful emerald green as an accent color, decorating the side panels of a kitchen island with the hue and pairing it with a simple wood or stainless steel countertop. A kitchen that boasts a fairly minimal design, like white perimeter cabinets or cool granite countertops will benefit from this contrasting pop of color.
When looking to add vintage style to the kitchen island, don‘t underestimate the power of accessories. Brushed-metal bin pulls installed on the cabinetry, round metal bar stools that swivel, or even a distressed finish on a newly painted piece are great ways to achieve that worn but charming feel.
Granite remains the most popular countertop of choice for American designers, according to a recent study by the National Kitchen and Bath Association. White, gray and gold are granite colors that are currently trending in residential design.
Hire a professional to help wade through the many design options as you create your one-of-a-kind kitchen island, from countertop materials (stone, stainless steel, butcher block and concrete are popular options) to other built-in options like a sink, cooktop, under-counter refrigeration, warming drawers or a dishwasher. Determine which space-saving qualities your kitchen island should feature. Could table-style island seating, for instance, eliminate the need for a kitchen table altogether? Similarly, under-counter refrigeration might eliminate the need for an oversized refrigerator.
