Check out these kitchen island trends for 2020 that you can easily achieve when you work with the right professional!
Natural Wood Island
Whether you opt for a dark or light stain, natural wood can be a stunning contrast to black or white cabinetry. This allows for a rustic feel that when paired with white cabinetry is still very neutral! Neutrality in your kitchen’s design features allows for changeable customization when choosing or switching out your decor. Natural wood can either keep the bright look or add some dark contrast, depending on the stain you choose.
Bold Blue Island
Blue is an emerging trend in 2020 not only for walls but also for cabinetry and islands! Blue contrasts well with white or other neutral kitchen designs to create a cool-toned, relaxing, and homey look. Whether you are thinking of a darker navy blue or a light blue wash, Frankenstein Refinishing has plenty of painted wood samples to bring to your home during our consultation.
While it is never a bad choice to match your island to your cabinetry and table, a lot of homeowners opt to add some contrast with their island! For example, a black island adds a moody element to an otherwise bright space. This also allows you to match chairs to more than just white!
