Beadboard Kitchen Island
Beadboard is a highly textured design featuring thin vertical panels that decorate the base of your island. This is typically a popular design for contemporary or beach-style homes, and it can add a lot of depth to your kitchen. If you feel your room is too solid and smooth, you can satisfy the need for texture by adding a black, white, or natural-toned beadboard kitchen island.
Shiplap Kitchen Island
Similar to beadboard, shiplap is traditionally a type of kitchen island made from pieces of wood reclaimed and stripped from old wooden structures. You can achieve a shiplap island in a variety of ways, but typically in a modern island, you will want to apply the strips vertically with a paneled border. You can use any color for your shiplap wood, with neutral or style-matching tones being the preference.
