Island Aesthetics

Styles for kitchen islands

You can make an island nearly disappear to anyone not working in the kitchen by extending the "public" face of the island (the one that doesn't face the kitchen) 4 to 6 inches above the countertop and covering it in the same surface material as the rest of the interior walls.

Islands that mimic the rest of the kitchen, typically by using cabinets in the same finish and from the same manufacturer, don't call attention to themselves. Most islands in American kitchens use this scheme.
