For a quick update to an existing basic wood island from Ikea, DIY blogger Dena Stormer simply painted the base and legs of her island white to match the rest of her kitchen. Then she added a vintage metal file cabinet for her recipes to the shelf below, along with retro kitchen accessories.
This beautiful wooden kitchen island has a black marble countertop, illuminated by silver pendant lights hanging overhead. Wooden barstools with plaid cushions add green and red to the neutral kitchen. The dark island stands out against the white cabinets and neutral tile floor.
Concrete countertops and white painted cabinets contrast with the texture of the savalged wideplank wood floors in this kitchen. A simple wood table replaces a traditional island, giving the space a more "lived in" feel.
Black distressed cabinets, a few lightened with custom leaded glass panels, provide a gorgeous backdrop for this traditional kitchen. An island with a warm wood countertop is paired with upholstered barstools, providing a cozy dining spot for three.
This farmhouse overlooking the Snoqualmie River Valley in Washington now has the open, airy feel of a fire look-out tower in a national forest. The wall that previously stood between the kitchen and dining room were removed, which allowed the family to add a continuous ribbon of windows around the space. These windows allow tons of natural light into the space and help make it more sustainable. As a tribute to the beautiful forest around them, the family had a custom kitchen island crafted specifically for this space.
Wood countertop on the long kitchen island serves as a beautiful centerpiece in this neutral, traditional kitchen. The light neutral color palette and hardwood flooring creates a timeless and classic design making this kitchen functional and stylish.
The black tile floor adds a dark detail against this kitchen's white ceiling, walls and cabinets. The island's cabinet doors blend seamlessly into the island's exotic wood. A sculptural stainless steel range hood hangs above the flat-top stove.
The white coffered ceiling and herringbone hardwood floor fill the room with beautiful texture. The light color scheme catches the natural light streaming in creating a bright and welcoming entry. A contemporary stacked bar table acts as an island in the open floor space.
Red barstools add a pop of color against the large wood island with a gray marble countertop complementing the concrete flooring. Full wall cabinetry, a white subway tile backsplash and recessed lighting give the room a bright look.
