Our kitchen (as close as i can find to the same layout)

Ok guys because our house does not have a display and we change our layout a bit, its a bit hard to find pics but this is as close as i can get, the only difference being that the dinning table is going to be directly in front of this photo (in front of the island and there will be an bi-part timber doors to the right where there table is in this kitchen) everything else is very similar, same pantry, fridge space same( except there is a wine rack instead of a cupboard above the fridge) same island and cupboards and oven :)

Thanks Tonia and Shayne I'm very grateful to be able to get every ones opinion and it does help me alot, When i in visioned my kitchen i did see the island as one whole colour.

Reinsey i don't have pics of different coloured islands because most photos are like the one above and you can not see the other side of the island which is what i am confused about it, It is the oppitsite side of the island to the one you can see in this photo that i am talking about. I think that there are pros and cons for both in having the white or ebony maccassa.

Sandrine i looked at your kitchen its beautiful, and you have very similar colour choices to us, only thing is that you have waterfall edges on the island and ours is just the side of the island just wrapped around.

Debra, our tiles are 600x600 porcelain white, bench top is ospray ceaser stone, splash back Antarctica (white on white) so we already have ALOT of white in the house ohh and the walls are white in saying that we did want this look so we can bring the colour in with furniture ect.

What to do????

Good job Tash!

My opinion (and as we know, our house isn't built so none of us know yet whether I have good or awful taste) would be to have the visible side of your island dark and the other 3 sides white. From the angle that you've shown on the pic, it would look really balanced with the darker timber on the upper cupboards and then have that carry through visually. It would also try your eye into seeing a waterfall effect.

You won't see a lot of it with the table in front anyway!!

Either way Tash, it's going to look great :)

Hey tash..i think i know what you mean about the two coloured island bench..i saw one this evening at a kitchen connection store..the front part of the island (like the one in your picture)was a different colour and the other 3 parts (2 sides and back of island) were in this what you mean? So its kinda like a feature..
