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.
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.
Rugged details, in fact, can help enliven the kitchen, establishing a time-worn, lived-in look in an otherwise newly constructed space. Think furniture-like, antique-style pieces (a carpenter's work bench or antique apothecary cabinet) that can be transformed into a rustic kitchen island with materials such as salvaged or raw wood, hand-carved details and rough-hewn, knotty surfaces.
