When it comes to choosing colours, you have slightly more freedom with your kitchen island than the cabinets due to the simple fact that they aren’t as dominant in your kitchen. While you’ll still be partly led by the colour scheme in the rest of your kitchen, there is potential to be a little more imaginative with your island.
If you have decided that you will integrate your kitchen appliances into the island, you should plan for the function and the spacing. “If the main kitchen sink is on the island, you will require a dishwasher and you will have to decide whether the dishwasher will be placed to the left or the right of your sink. If the island is going to be the main preparation area, you will require compost, trash and recycling areas nearby, too.
In a neutral modern kitchen, an island is the ideal opportunity to add in a splash of statement colour. Think mustard yellow, bright blue, emerald green - the possibilities are endless! Bring the look together with matching splashes of colour around the kitchen; well-placed touches like toasters, splashbacks or vases can all be used to accessorise a statement coloured island.
