This spacious kitchen has its island set on a jaunty angle, which is not commonly seen. To pull this off, your kitchen must be spacious. In this case, the designer chose to make the island the focal point of the room by not only angling it, but by using a darker wood and different countertops. The darker wood on the island breaks up the white cabinetry. The island's White Black Mosaic Granite incorporates all the colors of the room in one place. The tones in the granite bring the white in from the perimeter cabinets and the dark tones on the perimeter countertops. The subtle wall shades bring in just the right splash of color the kitchen needs, without being too dark or too light. It's also the right tone for keeping the space open and airy.
