31 Stunning Shiplap Kitchen Islands For Any Home

Shiplap Kitchen Island

Shiplap kitchen islands are a great way to help your island stand out without too much. Kitchen islands are the centerpiece of any home but often get forgotten regarding design. By adding wood shiplap, you can instantly elevate your kitchen design.

You can dress up your island with vertical or horizontal shiplap and various wood types. We love painted shiplap kitchen islands because they can add an accent color to your kitchen. If you have a white kitchen, try painting your island dark colors like navy or black to make a bold statement.

We love a beautiful island, so we’ve gathered our favorite shiplap kitchen island designs from around the internet! Enjoy!
