In addition to creating more counter space, an island is also a way to add more storage and avoid kitchen clutter by using drawers, cupboards and shelves. This is beneficial especially if appliances take up a lot of cabinet room, or if you're looking for a unique way to showcase certain items by using open shelving. Store dishes and pots within reach or keep less frequently used appliances out of the way. Another option is to use open shelving to display cookbooks or other items.
Contrasting white cabinets with a bold color can easily transform a kitchen. Focus on replacing or repainting your lower white cabinets for a bolder color. The vibrant or dramatic lower portion will creatively anchor your space.
Artfully pairing two or more vibrant colors can really make a statement in a kitchen. Vibrant color palettes such as turquoise and chartreuse, orange or yellow with gray, and red and white are seen in more and more creative combinations. It's the perfect way to truly express the different sides of your personality, and ideal way to combine a few of your favorite kitchen color ideas.
A good general rule for enclosed kitchens is to place it in the center of the room. That way it's equally accessible from all sides and won't be an obstacle for people walking through. That placement might not work best for all kitchens, however. A perimeter island, for example, might work better with open floor plans. Size and shape are also determined by room's layout; Allow for at least 36-48 inches between the perimeter of the island and the surrounding cabinets so there's enough room for people to move around.
