There are a variety of kitchen island cabinet styles, ranging from those with transparent fronts to those that are opaque, only partially revealing the kitchen items that lie inside. Wooden cabinet options include styles that have a straight-line front to those that are embellished by vintage-inspired accents. These cabinets can also be painted a multitude of colors and washes, making them a flexible option for a wide range of kitchens.

Opaque and glass front kitchen island cabinets can also be an interesting choice, especially for homeowners who are seeking to showcase colorful kitchen items or precious china pieces. For a kitchen with an eclectic feel, repurposed barn wood cabinet doors or reclaimed windows can also lend a vintage, down-to-earth vibe to a kitchen space.

Keep in mind that no matter the kitchen island cabinet you choose, the style should pair well with the overall look of the kitchen. Choose a cabinet that allows for the most functional use of an island, and pair your choices with handles and knobs that accent the design.
