Consider kitchen island styles and colors when planning a kitchen remodel.

When it comes to selecting colors and materials for your kitchen island, it's important to note that the kitchen island countertops and cabinetry don't necessarily need to match those found on the perimeter of the kitchen.

In fact, giving the kitchen island its own furniture-like identity adds character to the piece, not to mention visual interest to the kitchen.

Just make sure that sense of interest is aesthetically appealing—and not jarring to the eyes—by keeping the color palette of the island complementary to the rest of the kitchen.

A sleek stainless-steel island, for example, can be a nice counterpart to a variety of styles, from a modern to cottage-style kitchen.

A black kitchen island, on the other hand, is an attractive option in an all-white kitchen, creating a sense of balance between dark and light areas.

Other ways to achieve harmony when it comes to kitchen island styles and colors options: mix up the materials, like woods, metals, stones and finishes. The same goes for accessories like bar stools and dining chairs.
