Depending on the size of the island, it may be easy to turn it into a sitting area for the family. Add a few stools around the island and clean off the top of it so that the family can sit around and enjoy meals at the table. This is a great alternative if you don't have a kitchen table in the room or if you only have a formal dining table in the house. It offers a convenient space that can be utilized in the best way possible. You can even choose to set the island with placemats if you want to add even more style to the room.
Kitchen islands are the hottest new kitchen trend. If you are looking to remodel your kitchen, you should consider incorporating one into your design. Preparing meals becomes so much easier because an island provides extra counter and storage space. If you are not interested in remodeling your kitchen but would like to purchase an island anyway, you need to make sure that you have enough space. Ideally, you will have an L-shaped kitchen that is at least 100 square feet. This configuration ensures that you have room for an island and its addition will not make your space too crowded. I do not recommend adding a permanent island to smaller U-shaped or "corridor" kitchens. There simply is not enough space, but a rolling kitchen cart is always an option.
If you have recently installed a kitchen island, have a portable island on wheels or are thinking about doing a major remodel to add an island, you want to give serious consideration to kitchen island lighting. The type of kitchen island lighting you use depends on the kitchen you have, its style and the shape of the kitchen and island in general.
