While some kitchen islands are certainly ideal in a classic black or white tone, other kitchen island color options range from soft pastel hues to vibrant and bold colors, like orange and yellow.

Try using a bright citrus or playful emerald green as an accent color, decorating the side panels of a kitchen island with the hue and pairing it with a simple wood or stainless steel countertop. A kitchen that boasts a fairly minimal design, like white perimeter cabinets or cool granite countertops will benefit from this contrasting pop of color.

Of course, soft colors, like a pale blue or muted gray, are also options for a kitchen that is furnished with darker details, like cherry wood cabinets and surfaces. Colors in this palette will soften the look of the kitchen, rounding out the entire feel of the room.

If you would to stay with neutral hues when considering kitchen island color options, then you may want to play with colorful materials when choosing bar stools and other small details. After all, choosing the right colors is all about striking a balance.
