Red as a color gets plenty of bad rap when it comes to home decorating because it can seem far too overpowering when used excessively. But a red island coupled with a neutral backdrop can make a big visual impact in both contemporary and traditional kitchens alike. Red combines well with black in modern kitchens while a red island at the heart of a Mediterranean kitchen can instantly bring brightness to an otherwise mellow and inviting space. Make sure though that you pick a matte shade of red to ensure your red island is not ungainly and out of place.
Finding the right color for your kitchen island is far simpler than you think. This first step is to settle on both the style and the color scheme of the kitchen itself. Once you have this sorted, most of the work is done and your choices are instantly narrowed down. A kitchen with too many colors looks cluttered and hence it is best to pick a color for the island that is repeated elsewhere. Of course, a left-field choice is always welcome in an eclectic kitchen, but it does not work in most other kitchens. Whether it is stunning teal island in a polished contemporary kitchen or one in sunny yellow at the heart of a traditional kitchen, keeping the cabinets and the backdrop as neutral as possible helps immensely as well.
The mix of stainless steel and natural stone is really effortless here since the marble’s grey tones match the cabinets so perfectly. The touch of fun brought into this otherwise serious space via the chandelier above the table is so refreshing!
There is no doubt that this kitchen is stunning, and the mix of modern and traditional is so seamless! The center cooking area looks like it belongs in a professional chef’s kitchen, and the stove blends right in with the cabinets. The result: the island stands as a whole, like a kitchen within a kitchen. Even the cabinet pulls match the handles on the oven – it’s brilliant.
