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.
Kitchens are very important rooms in most homes, and often rooms that are used frequently and for a number of purposes. Most people want a kitchen that looks stylish, boasts a warm, inviting atmosphere, but is also practical and easy to maintain. There are many different designs and furnishings that you can get for kitchens these days, which means that you can create the perfect space with plenty of practical features as well as the perfect overall finish.
Take the opportunity to make your kitchen island mutli-functional because there's lots of options to choose from. Just about any appliance can be built into it including cook tops, under-the-counter refrigerators, sinks, dishwashers and trash compactors. Deep drawers provide a place to store bulky cookware and pullout shelves allow for more easy access. Pick a countertop for your island that matches your other counters or make it stand out by using a contrasting material. Also, your choice of cabinetry and decorative elements can make your island into a real quality item, similar to a fine furniture piece.
