If you want to keep the room fairly neutral, choose a subtle shade for your island such as cream, beige, greige or a subtle pastel shade. If you′re willing to be more adventurous, a bold shade can really shine on a kitchen island. Since the island is a focal point in the room, a striking shade can ground the space and make the room feel fun and inviting. Some colors that would work well with a kitchen island include yellow, turquoise, navy blue, orange and red. Lighter colors such as blue, gray and mint can really shine too. Whichever color you choose, make sure it‵s one you really love and won′t grow tired of over time.
A French country kitchen island will call for cabinets made from a rustic wood and, perhaps, stained a barn red or light antique green. Top the woodwork off with a white counter or butcher block surface to complete the look. These French kitchen islands also typically work well with an extra punch of colorful tile embedded in the countertop or sides of the island.
Repurposed options for a freestanding kitchen island include placing a kitchen-friendly surface on top of an old office desk or using an antique dresser to give a kitchen a vintage vibe.
