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.
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.
French-style kitchens come in many styles and forms. The key to finding—or designing—the perfect French kitchen island lies in the nuances. Whether your inspiration is a Parisian bistro (think black-and-white color scheme with a subway tile backsplash and industrial-style pendant lighting) or French country (light-colored, furniture-style cabinetry with an antiqued or distressed finish), you'll want to find just the right balance to pour on the European charm.
