Another great way to light up your bar or island is with mini pendant lighting. These have become a very popular choose because they are so economical. There is also a wide variety to choose from. Many lighting companies offer mini pendant lighting in a variety of options like chain hung, rod hung, or cord hung. Many manufactures have also added a wide variety of glass options. Colored glass has become a very popular option that can add a different look to your kitchen.
The first step to using a kitchen island in a small space is to shrink the counter space. While this may appear to sacrifice usability, you can still retain functionality by leaving just enough space for two or three people to sit and eat.
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.
