Best ideas for kitchen islands in 2017

Color-Blocked Accents

Zippy bursts of strong colors, like the row of candy-hued stools in the kitchen island, are lively without overpowering the kitchen of this Minnesota lake cottage. "Using bigger chunks of colour versus small, complicated patterns creates a bolder state-ment that's even easier on the eye," says interior designer Michelle Fries, who helped organize the distance.

Salvaged Finds

With still-functioning pulleys, these industrial and salvaged light fixtures (formerly utilized in a billiard hall) create for eye-catching (and hardworking) task lighting above the island in this coastal cabin.

Farmhouse Design

The kitchen island within this Ohio home boasts a zinc high crafted with a local metal shop and has an integrated plate rack to get stealthy storage. The backsplash is formed by subway tile from Home Depot.

Neutral Features

Salvaged fixtures hang above the wooden-top island to enhance a more impartial aesthetic.

Renovated Island

In this Illinois bungalow, the kitchen island incorporates parts from an antique sideboard, while an opulent chandelier and bright vintage fridge add grandeur into a small area.

Upcycled Desk

The homeowner of this revived country kitchen stumbled upon that early-1900s green desk -- $350 in an antiques store -- and saw an opportunity for a one time workstation. She improvised a shelf by propping wood planks to make the piece even more operational.

Tiny Island

The owner of the Florida cottage created space in her kitchen to get a console-turned-island.

Dark and Light

Offsetting the gleaming white appliances in this California house: an island with dark soapstone counters and backsplashes, as well as walnut cabinetry painted a muted gray-green (Paris Gray by Annie Sloan Chalk Paint). The wicker stools are by Palecek.

White Island

If you add a dark floor blot to your kitchen floors, pick a light paint to your island, partitions, and cabinetry.
