Thick butcher-block countertops, for instance, evoke the nostalgic appeal of 20th-century French butcher shops. Metallic accents, like wrought-iron detailing, brushed or polished hardware and brass accessories are not only great decorative options—they also add an eye-catching layer of dimension and old-world authenticity.
Think of the word "rustic" and it's hard not to envision a gorgeous woodland with sprawling trees and vibrant nature. The same goes for a rustic kitchen island – while the design is often simplistic, the end result is a beautiful and functional piece.
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.
