Whether you want a painted kitchen island or long for an island that is polished and far more contemporary in its finish, a colorful masterpiece at the heart of your kitchen makes a big difference to the overall ambiance. Colorful islands give the kitchen personality, uniqueness and elevate the style of your open plan living. It also sets the kitchen apart from the dining room and living area next to it and also you to experiment with different colors for kitchen cabinets. It is time to move away from dull grays and all too common white as you embrace a splash of vivaciousness in the kitchen!
Red as a color gets plenty of bad rap when it comes to home decorating because it can seem far too overpowering when used excessively. But a red island coupled with a neutral backdrop can make a big visual impact in both contemporary and traditional kitchens alike. Red combines well with black in modern kitchens while a red island at the heart of a Mediterranean kitchen can instantly bring brightness to an otherwise mellow and inviting space. Make sure though that you pick a matte shade of red to ensure your red island is not ungainly and out of place.
Yes, a large window seat that allows you to lazily catch up on a midday nap does sound great, but not all of us have enough space in the kitchen to spare for such an extravagant addition! For those short on both space and resources, a small window seat with built-in cabinets underneath is the perfect option. Not only does it give you a comfortable resting spot in the kitchen, but also helps you with tucking away additional kitchenware that you normally do not use. It can also be used as a cool homework zone or even a small breakfast nook with the addition of a small table.
