Adding an eating area to your kitchen island is a popular option, if you have the space. A raised counter, creating a two tiered island adds useful space to the kitchen while separating the eating surface from the food preparation surface of the island. This type of arrangement is great for families as the children can do homework on the raised surface, while other family members can be preparing a meal. The family can spend time together, yet keep their things separate from each other. The eating area added to an island can add useful space to the kitchen or help to define the kitchen space from other areas of the house.
Another great way to light up your bar or island is with mini pendant lighting. These have become a very popular choose because they are so economical. There is also a wide variety to choose from. Many lighting companies offer mini pendant lighting in a variety of options like chain hung, rod hung, or cord hung. Many manufactures have also added a wide variety of glass options. Colored glass has become a very popular option that can add a different look to your kitchen.
This type of lazy lighting work can be frustrating for those who view the kitchen as a focal room of the house, meant to be enjoyed by family members of all ages and used for a variety of different purposes. There are improvements that can be made to any kitchen that will give it more functionality and appeal, and lighting is one of the most important.
