While white offers a nice visual counterpart to a variety of colors, white-on-white islands—where both the base and countertop are the same material and/or color—offer a nice low-contrast option for a calm, quieting feel in the kitchen.
If you are choosing white cabinetry for your kitchen island, then consider balancing the piece with granite, wood or stainless steel countertops. The overall look will be fresh while still maintaining a neutral finish.
Pre-made antique-inspired designs can be purchased at plenty of home stores, but garage sales and online auctions are some of the best spots for finding these pieces. Consider checking your local newspaper for estate sales or multi-family sales where you might be able to discover furniture that would be ideal for an antique kitchen island design. Retro shopping sites, like Etsy, are also useful for finding these types of islands.
