There are many different ways you can approach this decision, and since an island takes up a significant amount of floor space it’s worth it to take time to make every element of its design intentional.
Granite: Very durable because it is stone. Since it’s porous will need to be sealed periodically. Granite is in the high price bracket. Concrete: Very durable although it is possible to crack. It can be molded into shapes and stained different colors. It too, should be sealed and is in the med range price bracket.
The biggest real estate for a focal point is behind the stove. Create focal points by changing up the pattern or color scheme of your materials, whether that’s laying tile at an angle or mixing and matching complimentary colors. And if you’re on a budget, splurge on that stove-top wall and use a less expensive material everywhere else.
