Whether it's a little black dress or black cat, the color black stands out.

Kitchen islands come in variety of styles, ranging from square to oblong and freestanding to repurposed. If black is the deep hue you are seeking, then it will be important to consider the overall design of your space. For example, a kitchen island with black cabinetry and shelving might be best balanced by a white marble countertop or the addition of colorful bar stools.

On the other hand, black kitchen islands might also benefit from simple accents, like tiles or seating, that balance out an otherwise bold or simple white piece. White cabinets are accented beautifully by black granite countertops, while a fiery red kitchen island base might pair well with black leather bar stools used for counter-style dining.

No matter how you choose to use black in your kitchen island design it is important to use it in moderation as opposed to making it the dominant color. A cheery green kitchen might benefit from the addition of a butcher's block designed with a classic black hue in mind, but the result will be fresh flexibility without creating a moody environment.
