Island chandeliers are a linear lighting fixture that can span the entire length of your bar or island. These are very popular because they have a lot depth and character. Island lighting is available in several light variations from two light versions to four light versions. Homeowners and designers love these because they have the look and beauty of a chandelier but the light is spread out over the length of your island.
Another con is space. While it was mentioned previously that there are rolling islands, if space is at a premium, an island may just not be practical. There is nothing more frustrating to a cook than having something in the way when you are trying to prepare meals for your family, or yourself. If your kitchen is small, while you may long for extra storage space and countertop, an island might not be the best solution.
Kitchen islands are a tricky item to successfully add to your kitchen design, but well worth considering when you are remodeling your kitchen. You may be surprised at the increase in convenience in meal preparation and added counter space an island will provide. But, it is hard to visualize the space required and the best size for any island addition, so be sure you get all the information you need to make the best decision for your kitchen.
