One con that was noted was placement of an island can disrupt the flow of a kitchen. The work-flow in a kitchen revolves around a triangle of refrigerator, sink, and range. An island can actually disrupt the flow of this working triangle, causing more issues in preparation, cooking, and cleanup. It is important to have placement so there is not a dead zone in the kitchen, or an area of countertop that goes unused due to the placement of the island.
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.
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.
