Some of the islands come in a natural wood color. This allows the homeowner to keep the island counter in the natural wood finish or the counter can be stained. Before designing the countertop, the homeowner should decide what look he or she is trying to achieve in the kitchen. A new trendy is to install a island top that is a bright color that doesn't necessarily match the already present color scheme in the kitchen. This makes the kitchen seem more artsy and funky and can make the island really stand out in the room. A homeowner may also decide that he or she wants a traditional kitchen island countertop that matches the rest of the color scheme.
