The deep wood grain against your lighter cabinets will make a bigger impact than you think. Countertops can be the most expensive purchase for a kitchen, excepting the appliances. So what do you do when you only have enough in the budget for the expensive counter choice on the cabinets? You resort to butcher block on the island.
It’s also common for the kitchen to feature small bursts of color. These are focal points that are strategically placed and that can also be seen in the rest of the house as well. So whether it’s a bright-colored appliance, a set of colorful plates, a piece of furniture or a floral arrangement, the goal is always the same: to break the monotony and to create a fresh décor.
It’s not a proper rustic post until shiplap has been mentioned. But in all seriousness, shiplap is the perfect way to add some interest and farmhouse flair to your dull kitchen island. Plus, it’s a cheap weekend project which means five stars. Most people fall into one of two concrete counter categories: they like it or they don’t. If you’re a lover, don’t hesitate to add a concrete countertop to your kitchen island.
A large kitchen with a vaulted ceiling obviously needs a larger statement to take up the space. Treat yourself to a live edge countertop on your rustic kitchen island to bring some serious class and personality to your kitchen.When you want your sleek modern space to feel like home, it’s necessary to add a touch of vintage. Next time you’re out secondhand shopping, look for the wooden table with the pencil marks and roughened surface. It will be the perfect kitchen island to add some warmth to your space.
