New here, please help with kitchen island color!!
Hi everyone, I found this forum and have been looking at discussions and advice, and I have found the right place! Wonderful inspiration and great advice. I am hoping you all can help me with my kitchen island issue, I am so undecided and don't want to make a mistake and have to start over and paint again! Am posting pics of the kitchen so ya'll can help!!
We just moved into our new house, downsized and this kitchen is much smaller than my old kitchen. Lots of character I think, but smaller. I don't want to make the kitchen look too busy, crowed, etc, but I do want something that is not "cookie cutter" that has personality. I have a copper farm sink, and painted the existing white vent hood over the cook top to look like antiqued copper,(the price of buying a copper one is very expensive!) I thought about possibly incorporating the copper look into the island itself, and have already painted the larger support posts kind of a copper color and antiqued them. I am living with them to see if I like the posts a different color than the island, or if I should paint them whatever color I decide to paint the island.We have just added posts onto the island base to add character also, and thinking about what it would look like to paint the added/attached posts antique copper also???
Cabinets and island were already white, and I am going to leave the cabinets white and glaze over them. I initially wanted the island a different color (even considered turquoise, did a sample area, and thought it looked out of place with the house :( So, I may leave it white and glaze it, crackle each end of the island leaving the front with the cabinets white with glaze ...... with the contrasting copper posts on the ends?) Would that look really odd, or really good???? Of course, this makes the entire kitchen one color, which I wanted to try something different.............I just don't know!!! Please let me know what you think of the idea of leaving the attached posts a copper color like the support posts and painting the island white with glaze and crackle??? Thank you in advance!
