These days, it's a safe bet that most homeowners are looking to incorporate a kitchen island into their culinary headquarters, but how can you make it stand out from the crowd? We've got the answer you've been looking for. Try it in the color teal. A combination of green and blue, teal will provide a boost of energy to the heart of your home, while also creating a calming ambience. Perfect for a kitchen, eh? Now get ready, because these teal kitchen island ideas will have you running to your local hardware store in search of the perfect shade.
1. Soften the look.
Teal has the ability to work extraordinarily well in bohemian style homes, adding a pop of color and personality. Pair it with light wood countertops and textured stools for an open and inviting result that will encourage your entire family to sit around the kitchen island while you cook. Just ask Jess Ann Kirby.
2. Add tropical decor.
If you want to bring the outside in, opt for a deep-green shade for your teal kitchen island, and pair it with tropical decor and other pops of color such as magenta and coral. Regina Stumpf Architects did exactly that in this industrial-style cook space, completing the long island with gray, factory-style pendant lighting.
3. Make it luxe.
A dark teal shade can create a whole lot of drama in a culinary space, offering a slightly more sumptuous feel than gray and a brighter look than navy. Emily Henderson has perfected the luxe kitchen island idea in this high-end design, teaming teal with marble countertops that showcase green veining. We're pretty sure the chef will approve.
4. Work the neutrals.
Teal can take on a dark and dramatic look, a muted vibe, or a vibrant, over-the-top aesthetic, and while we've already established that the shade works well with fresh white walls and light wood accents, this kitchen by Kyal and Kara is a lesson in how it's done with a minimal touch. Not every minimalist is averse to color, and the moody teal kitchen island in this scheme really packs a punch.
