The large island houses an in-built sink and microwave on one function side, leaving the other side of the island free for entertaining at the bar. The base cabinets, painted in white, compliment the blue for a neutral palette.This shade is a practical one for a couple of key reasons.

When using Navy blue kitchen cabinets, high contrast colors look best.
