Whatever the chief function of your island is to be, the necessary items to make it happen should be stored within easy reach. For example, if it is to be mainly used for cooking, then cabinets for pots and pans with drawers for utensils and spices are priority. If food preparation is the ideal chief function of the island design, then space for knives, cutting boards and small appliances such as food processors is what you are after. If the kitchen island in your home is to be a center point for gathering, then seating space and counter space for homework plus food preparation are your top needs.
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.
Due to the popularity of islands, there is now much more choice available and they come in a wide variety of styles, as well as having a number of options when it comes to kitchen accessories. An island can consist of a solid countertop surface, or it can incorporate a sink, your cooking appliances as well as other useful kitchen accessories.
