They say that everything has to match. The purse has to match the shoes, the bed linen has to match the curtains, and the kitchen island has to match the kitchen cabinets. But does it really? Why not break the limits by adding a contrasting color in your kitchen?! The kitchen island gives you endless opportunities to diversify the boring kitchen interior. If you have a wooden kitchen island, paint it in a vivid color to make it the focal point of the kitchen. Another interesting idea is to combine a wooden body with a marble or metal countertop, or just paint the counter top in a contrasting color. That would be an easy and cheap way to remodel the kitchen. Draw some inspiration from the pictures below.
