A kitchen island should match your cabinets, whether they are traditional, modern, luxury or classic. The type of wood you choose, whether it is cherry wood, maple or any other type, should be the same for your cabinets as for your kitchen island. A matching table and chairs for your breakfast or dining area will provide a polished and pulled-together look, while providing the
functionality you need.
The kitchen island may also be the place where you have your sink, that can be single, double or triple bowl, and beside it you can have the food-prepping area. When considering your new kitchen, observe yourself when you cook and make a note of how you find it more comfortable to work. That will determine what type of island to have in your new kitchen.
