There are some cons of having a kitchen island. The largest one is expense. Placing a permanent kitchen island with running water and electric as many of the islands have can be extremely expensive. If one is doing a kitchen remodel, adding the electric or gas line to an island during a remodel can cost a tremendous amount of extra money. Even without electric, gas, or water, the cost of a stationary island can run into several thousand dollars, which might be better used elsewhere.
They great thing between these two types of lighting is they are available in several design options from traditional to contemporary. They can set a design scheme in your kitchen that will totally change the look of the room. If you are going for a classical look for your kitchen you should choose a traditional pendant or island light. If you are looking for a more modern look you should choose a transitional or contemporary pendant or island chandelier.
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.
