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.
Who said that modern style doesn’t mean color? There are a lot of colorful designs you can rock, and tons of shades to choose from: mint, teal, red, neon shades, emerald, navy, cobalt blue and almost every color you can imagine! You can go for various two-color combos, which are extremely popular now, or try bold shades with white or cream for a contrast, or just mix some cool shade with black, which is a timeless thing.
It’s such a wonderful thing to find hand-me-down treasures in your parents’ or grandparents’ attic. Remember that big old dining room table? Snap it up to use as a kitchen island. Being already lovingly worn down means you won’t be worried about using it to it’s full potential. How do you bring rustic to a rather modern kitchen? It’s all in the wood. Give your island a makeover by lining the corners in some beautiful rustic beams.
