You can also experiment with various antique kitchen island styles by matching them with retro or modern pieces to add your own touch of flair. Brightly colored stools paired with an antique wooden island or the addition of seats with textured materials are easy ideas for matching current trends with styles of the past. These are, of course, just two ideas for pairing the old with the new in antique kitchen design.
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.
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.
