Using different color cabinets in island

Is there a rule as to how large a kitchen should be before you use different color cabinets in your island from the rest of the kitchen cabinets?

There are no hard and fast rules however, I suggest that the island should not be less than 5'long in order to give enough visual presence and balance to warrant a second color. That being said we use CAD or computer added design to help the client visualize
and make a final decision as it is a personal preference. See at following picture of a 5' Island.

No rules on that one. My preference is for consistent countertops and two colors on cabinets and islands. There are endless combinations of colors. It's a great look. I would scale the island off of the kitchen layout. Leave 3' at least for your aisles. Hope this helps. Charmean Neithart

Beautiful kitchen! Is the faucet chrome, or brushed nickel?

what is the floor pattern that you used? What size tiles? Looks like 18x18 and 12x12 - is that correct?

Hi Jeanne Bachinskas,
You are correct the sizes used are 18"x18" and 12'x12" the pattern used is called Pinwheel or Hopscotch.
It is basically a rotating pattern with 1) smaller tile surrounded by 1 larger sized tile.
It works with many common sizes.

Here are a few more photos of the project for your reference.

Hope this helps.
