While a black kitchen island placed in an otherwise all-white kitchen is one contemporary kitchen design that's currently trending, the color also works surprisingly well as a complement to kitchens with warm wood cabinetry.

Similarly, a silky black stone (or stone-look) countertop is a nice foil to a light wood-colored island, just as a crisp, stark-white countertop would add a fabulous color pop above an all-black island base. Perhaps its most redeeming quality: black kitchen island countertops are great for hiding small flaws like fingerprints, stains, scratches and spills.

As with any interior design project, you'll want to keep the color palette of other kitchen surfaces in in mind—backsplashes, flooring, cabinetry and more—to determine the overall look and feel.

Whether you opt for an all-black kitchen island, a white-on-black kitchen island or a black-on-white island, black is a versatile color that suits a variety of color combinations.
