When choosing a light for your kitchen take your time and find a light that will fit the space that your are trying to light. You do not want to have a light that is to over powering. But at the same time you do not want a light that is undersized. One key design factor with lighting is that you want it to be noticed but you do not want it to be the total focal point of your kitchen.
Adding an eating area to your kitchen island is a popular option, if you have the space. A raised counter, creating a two tiered island adds useful space to the kitchen while separating the eating surface from the food preparation surface of the island. This type of arrangement is great for families as the children can do homework on the raised surface, while other family members can be preparing a meal. The family can spend time together, yet keep their things separate from each other. The eating area added to an island can add useful space to the kitchen or help to define the kitchen space from other areas of the house.
Some features to consider in adding a kitchen island can include the oven, kitchen exhaust hood, electric switches and outlets, and storage and shelves. Finally as for the material of the island counter while you could use the same material for the island counter as you have for the kitchen counter it is possible to consider different materials to create an more interesting look.
Instead of using one large island, consider two smaller islands. This solution operates perfectly and is increasingly popular among luxury kitchen architects. One can prevent the need to walk around the island to access multiple kitchen appliances with two different tiny islands. For example, there is an area which is a prep area; a little sink and chopping area could even be added. The secondary island can then be used to eat or entertain visitors by the family. This practical alternative to a popular issue with luxury kitchens can do you great!
