A countertop for the kitchen island should not just blend in with the style of the kitchen and its existing theme, it also must reflect your own cooking skills and culinary taste. Add a butcher block if you are planning to utilize the island for food preparation, while a classy marble countertop is perfect if baking consumes most of your time at the island. Stainless steel countertops are both sturdy and durable, and quartz is an equally popular choice in modern kitchens.
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.
Space is key for an island used while entertaining. The countertop must provide ample surface for serving or dining. There should also be plenty of room for guests to mingle or be seated outside the work zones. "The ability to have your family or guests seated at the island while you work on the opposite side is very comforting and social," says Debbie Nassetta, of Roomscapes, Inc., in Laguna Niguel, California.
