Who doesn’t smile and start daydreaming a little when they hear the word “Island”? Truth be told, I get that dreamy about all of the islands… especially the one in the kitchen! It’s a destination spot right in your home. Everyone likes to gather there and socialize. That is precisely why it needs to be special and stand out from all of those other islands out there.

- If painting your cabinets, be sure to give the cabinets a light sand and use a high-quality primer before painting. Use a satin, semi gloss or lacquer finish paint for
durability and easier cleaning.
- When selecting a bold bright color for your kitchen island, pair it with a fun neutral print on your chairs or counter stools or try a pattern that incorporates the island color into it. This will make your space feel cohesive and playful!
- Complimentary colors always make an impactful statement in a kitchen! Think blue and orange/yellow, black and white or even red and green!
