Kitchen islands used to be the area where friends and family would gather as well as providing that extra counter space we cooks love so much! Kitchen islands are now not just an area to have extra counter space. They can include a stove top, prep sink, small fridge, microwave, wine cooler, bookcase, and numerous other items for the kitchen.
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.
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.
