There was a time when kitchens were treated just like every other room in the house, and no special attention was paid to lighting or decor. Many older kitchens just feature a single hanging light fixture, regardless of the size, shape or color of the room.
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.
You could also use it as a dining region, particularly as a breakfast table, because you can use the kitchen island to prepare meals. The kitchen islands should be sufficiently lit, because they are an significant workspace. It is also necessary to ensure that power outlets are not located on the top of the kitchen island but on its sides to prevent any electrical risks.
