There are many trends in kitchen decor: two-tone kitchens, concrete splashbacks, butcher block countertops, penny tile and soon. Do you need more trends for a fashion-conscious kitchen? Today we look at another cool trend that contrasts kitchen islands.
A contrasting kitchen island means that the island is different from the cabinets. The piece is usually the same style as your cabinets but looks completely different and can make a statement with its color or decor. You can connect it to the cabinets using the same countertops or at least the same material. Let’s check out some inspirational ideas!
Contrasting kitchen islands
A completely different kitchen island is a good idea to make a bold statement – with style, with materials, with colors, with everything together. It can also be used to add a touch of a different style to your kitchen decor. It can be a bold stone and metal island in a minimalist kitchen, it can be a rustic stained wood island in a modern space, or a stone island in a kitchen with wood cabinets. Such a solution always guarantees that your kitchen will not be boring.
Contrasting kitchen islands that are tied
A contrasting kitchen island can be tied to your kitchen cabinets for a stylish, unified look. The most popular idea is to order a kitchen island that looks the same as the cabinets but is a different color. This is a great way to add a colorful touch to your space. Another idea is to rock the same countertop as on the kitchen cabinets. It’s a cool and catchy way to create a bold look, but it’s a bit uniform. You can also use the same material for the kitchen island countertop and backsplash. This is a more original way of connecting the piece to the rest of the room.
