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.
Designing a kitchen based around certain dietary considerations can be a huge plus for a client. When it comes to Judaism these dietary laws, known as kashrut, define which foods are permitted in the home and how these foods must be stored and prepared. For example kashrut adherents keep meat and dairy separate so it is crucial that a kosher kitchen be equipped and organized well to accommodate this. Among the primary concerns are storage and appliances, since duplicates of everything from dishwashers to refrigerators might be needed.
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.
For example, an island can be a departure point for cabinet style, finish or color. Its cabinets can be the same style as a kitchen's perimeter cabinets but in a different finish or color. Or they can be the same color and finish as the perimeter cabinets, but with a slightly different door style.
