A kitchen island is comparable to a great piece of furniture. So why not give it a splash of color? These colorful kitchen islands offer stunning work space for hardworking kitchens.
A blue-and-white color palette is traditonal, but the cobalt island is a bold take on the classic look. Outfitted with display space for a collection of dishware, the island is both pretty and practical.
Combined with white subway tile and barely-there gray cabinetry, this charcoal gray island feels right at home. Stainless-steel appliances and accessories, plus the matte finish on the cabinetry, creates a chic and contemporary look.
Learn tips and tricks for choosing the best paint color for your island on the first try.
A soft, buttery yellow on the island is the perfect color to offset the white walls and heavily veined marble countertops. Black hardware adds definition to the cabinetry, and a collection of pottery on floating shelves and hanging on the wall ties the room's color palette together.
In this kitchen, the red island is the obvious star. A sleek lacquer finish catches the eye and commands attention. Accented by tubular modern hardware and a marble top, the kitchen's bold look is complete.
Citrus-inspired hues are bold, sassy, and full of energy. If you love blazing orange but can't commit your entire kitchen, try it as an accent. Black countertops add the perfect amount of sophistication in this kitchen.
Anchoring the heart of this open kitchen, the island's stone color, although muted, stands out against the white walls and perimeter cabinets. Industrial elements, such as the stools, light fixtures, and faucet, mingle with the room's traditional design.
Good looks and practicality are equal partners in this gorgeous kitchen. A tempered chartreuse island blends the sunny side of yellow with the vibrancy of lime green for a warm, springy look. The island was outfitted with a roll-out baking station, fashioned in the island's likeness, to make baking a breeze, and the frame is painted the same zingy chartreuse as the island.
White perimeter cabinets and countertops set a clean-lined stage for a playful emerald green island. Open shelving on one end of the island offers plenty of space for bright cookbooks and large display items. Sapphire blue wallpaper with pretty florals adds another splash of jewel tones, creating a color scheme that's rich yet casually preppy.
With clever storage and a bit of whimsy, the asparagus-green island perks up this kitchen. The color also makes an appearance on perimeter cabinets and trim on the built-in shelves. A muted corn yellow colors the walls, and tomato-red and squash-yellow accessories complete the fresh-from-the garden look.
Being bold is all about striking the right balance, and bold doesn't have to be bright. Here, a saturated yet muted golden yellow island gives this pretty kitchen a peppy focal point. The color on the island is a more intense version of the yellow tiles in the basket-weave pattern backsplash.
