There is no one-size-fits-all perfect kitchen island; what’s important is that you find a size and shape that works for your kitchen. If you have a large kitchen then the world is your oyster; a big island will fill an otherwise empty expanse of floor space and enables you to position your key appliances closer to each other by installing a sink or hob on your island.
If you want to keep it simple, matching your kitchen island to your cabinets and worktop is the obvious choice. This way everything coordinates, and you’re left with a clean, classic look that fits seamlessly. This is particularly well suited to small kitchens, where consistent use of light, neutral colours will help to open up the space and make it feel airier.
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.
