Your first consideration when deciding on a which type of kitchen island you'd like should probably be how you plan to use it and their functions are as varied as the wide range of design options. They can be a utilized as a food preparation area, a baking center, a serving spot for an informal meal or buffet and the perfect setting to sit and nibble a snack or sandwich. An island even can provide a quiet spot for children to do their homework, close to mom while she gets after school snacks or dinner together.
One of the popular options right now in kitchen island lighting is to go with lighting that is built into a pot rack. This does double duty, giving you a place to hang your pots and pans as well as lighting to be able to prepare food without worrying about cutting yourself with a chef's knife because you couldn't see what you are doing. If you don't want to get a lighted rack, you can go with ceiling mounted lighting instead. While some homeowners like recessed "can-style" lighting that's flush mounted into the ceiling, others prefer to use pendant lighting since these can be aimed at various work spaces, not only adding the light you need, but adding drama as well, especially if you use dimmer switches on all the lights.
Kitchen islands are perfect for those that want to create more storage space in the kitchen or need more countertop space for cooking and working. They also make a great place to sit and eat, with a range of seating styles to best fit your needs. These islands are also perfect for open plan kitchens that are combined with the a family room, as they provide a means of dividing the kitchen area from the seating and living area. As with the cabinetry in your kitchen you can select from a wide choice of materials and countertops, so you can make sure that your island fits in perfectly with the rest of the furniture and decor in your kitchen.
