“You’re going to need about 3 feet of space around it — at least 3,” she says. Homeowners sometimes end up with too crowded a kitchen if they choose an island that’s too large.
“We’ve seen a lot of the dark blues and grays and greens, in reaction to all the white kitchens we were seeing for a while,” Burnham says. “Maybe mix things up. Keep all the countertops the same, but maybe the perimeter cabinetry is one color and the island cabinetry is a different color.”
But like so many aspects of kitchen design, it needs to be planned with extra care. An item this large and central isn’t something you’ll want to replace within just a few years.
In smaller kitchens, an island unit could potentially make a cramped kitchen feel full and cluttered. To create an illusion of an airy space, choose light colors on the surrounding cabinets and countertops.
