There are a variety of options when it comes to choosing lights that will be placed over a kitchen island or breakfast bar. One of the most popular options is to use pendant lights to provide a feeling of length to the room as well as efficient and decorative fixtures that will add style to the décor. Pendant lights are usually characterized by a long cord or stem from which a stylish globe and light bulb are suspended. Pendant lights usually feature colorful glass or intricately shaped metal work and can be used as accent pieces as well.
Unique Shapes add Interest. Most often, a kitchen island is designed in a rectangular or square shape. The sharp corners of these shapes make them look rigid. For a more casual touch, you can try unique shapes such as C-, S- or a oval-shape.
You can add food preparation surfaces underneath the island. While food preparation is part of any kitchen, it's not the most thrilling sight for others to see. Fortunately, you can create levels of preparation areas underneath the island's surface. This allows you to do whatever slicing, mixing, and other activities you need to do-without everyone seeing the mess.
Look at the big picture. When you pick out a design for the kitchen island, take a look at the rest of your kitchen decor. Depending on what you want, you can match the island to your kitchen decor, or you can contrast it with it, as long as it goes with your overall theme. For example, you could make your island match your kitchen cabinets exactly, or you can contrast them and match them to the kitchen table chairs in your kitchen instead. This is one of the more popular trends in modern kitchens, in fact, to match the kitchen island to the furniture instead of to the cabinets, so be sure to pay attention to the kitchen table chairs as well.
If you have a smaller kitchen space, that doesn‘t mean that you can’t add island space to your kitchen. A portable kitchen island or food preparation cart can add usable surface area in a smaller space. You can store the cart out of the way most of the time, and then roll it out for use during meal preparation. The movable island can match your kitchen cabinets or it can have a completely different style, the choice is yours.
