The kitchen island is a snack center, breakfast bar, work station and storage unit smack in the middle of the chef’s real estate. It commands high visibility just by location, so getting the decor details right is critical to integrating the island with the cabinets.
Decorating style, island materials and kitchen colors are all factors to consider when choosing the paint or finish for the island and cabinets. You can use the cabinets and island as cheerful counterpoints. In a classic white kitchen with white cabinets, walls and light counter tops, give your kitchen some flair and make your island the centerpiece by using a different color.
