If you have a smaller kitchen space, that does not mean that you ca not add island space to your kitchen. A portable kitchen island or food preparation cart can add usable surface area in a smaller space. You can store the cart out of the way most of the time, and then roll it out for use during meal preparation. The movable island can match your kitchen cabinets or it can have a completely different style, the choice is yours.
If you are interested in installing kitchen island lights in your home, it may be helpful to enlist the services of a trained lighting specialist or at least an electrician. These professionals can visit with you in your home and offer their advice on options, fixtures and aesthetics, before you make any purchases that you might regret. If you are shopping on lighting supply websites for your materials or fixtures, be sure to check into their return policy in case something does not look quite right.
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.
