While creamy white kitchen islands are most often associated with country style, it's down-home details like beadboard paneling, softly painted or distressed finishes, and a light-brown wood countertop (think pine, walnut or maple) that are also hallmarks of a country kitchen island.

Country kitchen islands can also be furniture-like in feel. Even architectural details like hand-turned legs, decorative feet or stained wood corbels feel laid-back thanks to a farmhouse-style form that's at once casual and sophisticated. While kitchen islands certainly don't need to match the cabinetry and countertops on the perimeter, very often, country kitchen islands are the same color as their countertops—think rustic green, light yellow and gray-blue.

Personality is key in achieving country style in the kitchen. Successful country kitchen islands aren't just work centers, they're also a casual gathering space for family and friends, a display space for collections or cookbooks and, above all, loved and lived-in.
