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.
One of the easiest ways to add modern flair to the kitchen island: choose a signature color (think tangerine orange or lipstick red) to distinguish the space. Whether or not that color is repeated in another kitchen design element is up to you—there's no rule that says an island's counter (or color) needs to match its counterparts on the perimeter of the kitchen.
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.
