An island is also a logical place to change countertop materials. You could, for example, use laminate counters throughout most of the kitchen and splurge on marble, granite or stainless steel for the island.
For a more modern kitchen, combine white with stainless steel appliances and a glass backsplash, adding small pops of color around the room.
Other typical departure points are countertop areas around sinks and ranges or cooktops. Particularly if they're on opposite walls, you could choose to use laminate at the sink and ceramic tile around the stove. Butcherblock on the island would reduce the risks of uniformity and monotony even more by introducing a third material.
If you're not accustomed to mixing and matching materials, the first step is to look for inspiration elsewhere. By thumbing through kitchen design magazines and books and wandering through model kitchens at home centers and kitchen showrooms, you can train your eye. You can learn to appreciate how combining a wide variety of appealing materials, rather than just a few, can stimulate the senses.
