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.
Placing an appliance on the island may not seem like you are decorating but this serves as both a functional way and decorative way to store a great appliance that you may have. Don't just put any old appliance on the counter area. Instead use your nice fancy stainless steel toaster or blender for the décor. If you are going to decorate with an appliance be sure that the island has outlets or there is one accessible from where the island is located in the kitchen.
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.
