Blue Island- should I go for it
I've been reading this forum for a while now but this is my first post. We are just starting a kitchen great room addition and having my first big design dilemma. I'm planning on white painted cabinets in a shaker-ish style (Brookhaven Edgemont Recessed) and had planned to do a nut brown stain maple on the island, but at the last minute we just aren't loving it. I guess we are worried that our kitchen is just starting to look a little generic and want to shake it up a little. I've always loved blue, and was planning on using it as a main color in the space, so my husband suggested that we just go for it on the island. I love the idea, but our kitchen designer is skeptical and worries that we'll get sick of it. Does anyone have a colored island and how do you like it? Would you take the risk? Its a huge 9 ft. island and will have either a white granite or marble-look quartz top. Floors are light/natural oak, appliances are stainless. Island would be a blue/grey color. We are a young family (3 kids + dog) and really want the room to be a lively colorful family space, but also very practical and durable.
