Kitchen islands come in variety of styles, ranging from square to oblong and freestanding to repurposed. If black is the deep hue you are seeking, then it will be important to consider the overall design of your space. For example, a kitchen island with black cabinetry and shelving might be best balanced by a white marble countertop or the addition of colorful bar stools.
With their naturally complementary color, white kitchen islands can take on a variety of personas: cool and sleek in a modern kitchen (especially when paired with a dramatic black stone countertop), or warm and inviting on a traditional wood island topped with a chopping block.
Employing a monochromatic palette, such as a white-on-white, all-black or warm wood, is another way to add contemporary character to the kitchen island. If a monochromatic style feels too dramatic for your space, there are plenty of high-contrast ways to incorporate modern touches. Think polished wood or stainless steel used as an accent on the base of the island or in place of trim.
