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 decor. 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.
A simple kitchen utility cart is not an expensive investment but it can be quite beneficial in a small kitchen where counter or workspace is lacking and where you could use the flexibility of a surface on wheels. Kitchen utility carts can be used for the sole purpose of storage or as a prep area. Their most beneficial characteristic is the ability to be easily moved from one area to another. You can even use your cart to serve prepared food at meals or gatherings. Such carts can be found in wood, metal or even plastic materials that are easy to keep clean but more utilitarian in appearance.
There are certainly many pros to having a kitchen island. The first pro we will look at is that of extra counter space. Having resided in homes where counter space was at a minimum, the kitchen island was a life saver when cooking for larger gatherings. The second pro would be extra storage space. Who does not need extra storage space in a kitchen? One kitchen owned was so small the laundry room next to the kitchen wound up being turned into a pantry as there was next to no storage in the kitchen.
