If you want some more variation in your kitchen colour scheme, try contracting your island with the other cupboards. This works particularly well with monochrome, where you can play with black, white and grey across counters and units to make a big impact.
Open shelving doubles as a handy storage solution and an imaginative styling tactic. Alcoves for shelves cut into the island are an eye-catching feature, and can be used to neatly store kitchen items, or decorate with vases, cookbooks and ornaments.
The discussion about an island is really only a small subset of issues that the overall design of the kitchen and the surrounding space must resolve. In the overall scheme, what is delegated to the kitchen island is part of the overall flow of living and working patterns. The kitchen island is just part of a solution, and this is where the discussion should focus. The details will then fall into place.
