Traditional kitchen lighting, however, wasn't necessarily designed with kitchen islands in mind. Often the lighting is directed instead to the kitchen counters using recessed lights or there is just a single overhead light that tries to cover the entire kitchen with a flat level of light that really isn't that great for preparing or enjoying food.
Portable kitchen islands or carts are just as useful. You want to make sure that ones you look at have heavy duty, locking rubber wheels to keep your island in place especially if you plan to use it for chopping vegetables. There are also islands with drop-leaf extensions giving you more counter space when you need it, but making it easier to store later. Towel bars, spice racks, and paper towel holders are just a few of the many options you have with a portable kitchen cart.
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.
