HOWTO ADD STYLE TO A KITCHEN ISLAND If you have a good-sized kitchen island, or maybe you’re dreaming of adding one, you might be wondering how to make it stand out – while still complimenting the kitchen’s overall look. One popular choice is to paint the island a different colour than the rest of the kitchen cabinetry. A blue island amidst a sea of white cabinets gives the kitchen a coastal feel, while a lemon yellow island brings a youthful, happy flavour. Wood is also a beautiful option. Wrapping an island in a light-toned wood feels clean and fresh, while salvaged wood adds character. Adding moulding to a built-in island can give it more presence, while adding wheels to a moveable island makes your kitchen feel transformable. While lighting isn’t necessarily attached to an island (although LED light strips are a thing!), pendant lights hung above an island provide much needed task lighting – and can add to the atmosphere if placed on a dimmer switch.
