Need help with kitchen island design
kikiakakoNovember 8, 2013
I'm having a wood-stained island installed in my kitchen (the perimeter cabinets are white; the backsplash tile is white; my floor is a gunstock hardwood color). The island is large with a significant eating counter - the entire island top is granite (Volga Blue). In order to support the granite eating surface, we need to build a knee wall. The knee wall can either be painted OR covered in matching stained wood (smooth finish). I'm having a difficult time deciding which way to go. I'd love to hear your opinions. Thank you! PS - attached is a sketch of the island configuration. I highlighted the portion that would be drywall. Paint v. wood?
