Despite our earlier admonition about using light tones in tiny kitchens, the gods will not strike you dead should you decide on dark, cherry-tone cabinets--as evidenced here. This is quartersawn cherry cabinetry with slab doors.

What really makes this combination work is the well-placed undercabinet lights and the colorful counter backsplash tiles.

And if you're really into fixed kitchen islands, they can be made to work in limited spaces. Just use one like the square-shaped island here with slide-out surface.
