Explore These Beautiful Kitchen Island Design Options for Ideas

If you are looking for an island with wood cabinetry, then you may want to consider painting it a pale color, then pairing it with a white or light wood countertop to give it a vintage look. Consider painting cabinets a pale yellow or blue, or use a whitewash to give the wood a weathered, antique look.

Other vintage kitchen islands use repurposed furniture pieces to create an island. Try painting an old dresser or desk before choosing a counter surface to turn it into an island. You might also purchase vintage-inspired knobs and handles from home design stores to give the island a finished look. Other creative designs have repurposed a drafting table or set of filing cabinets to create a vintage kitchen island.

If you are seeking seating at your kitchen island, then consider retro bar stools made from solid, bright-hued fabrics or a vintage-inspired pattern.
