Another problem you might face if you buy your kitchen island as a separate unit, and not as part of the overall kitchen, is matching it to your existing cabinets. This might not be as easy as your think, but if you purchase a solid color, such as black, white or red, then you should get away with it. Regarding colors and designs, kitchen islands can be made from a number of different materials. The framework is usually wood, but the main visible surfaces could be metal or even stone - granite is a popular substance used for counter tops. Stainless steel is also good, but try to avoid aluminum if possible, because that is very soft and easily cut and scratched, and the metal oxidizes to a dull finish.
Whether you desire a rustic look, contemporary look, or an ultra-modern style, research online and get what you want. Cabinets come in such a variety that they cater to all kinds of kitchen needs. There are double door ones, single door ones, those with six racks, or a couple of tall shelves. There are ones with smooth wood finish, or textured to suit your personal tastes. One of the trendiest kitchen furniture pieces is wicker and wire. Place a black and white wicker and wood trash bin in a corner of your kitchen and watch the spot come alive. It looks more than a trash bin. Wood painted in black and white gives a fabulous contrast to your plain towel or linen holders. A wooden cutting board added to the kitchen top completes the look of your kitchen. If you have got a tiny kitchen where you cannot afford to place those fancy and huge counter tops, dining sets, and loud cabinets, relax. There are compact furniture pieces that not only leave more room in your kitchen, but also make it look stylish within a small space. The specially designed kitchen islands feature a narrow counter-height table, plus a pair of small stools that you can slide under the island groves to make space.
Kitchen furniture styles range from rustic to modern. The size of your kitchen will play a vital role in determining the style in which you decorate. Large rustic pieces need to be in a large kitchen. Contemporary and traditional style wooden tables vary greatly in size. You can easily find a wooden table and various other matching pieces of kitchen furniture such as a buffet, side board, bakers rack, or hutch to match your table. Extension or drop leaf tables are excellent for small kitchens. Modern style tables such as the bistro style, bar height design, and bar pub table are relatively new designs that are ideal for small kitchens.
