Today the island or peninsula counter space is a popular feature in many modern kitchens. Islands provide and easily accessible platform for cooking, preparation of ingredients, washing dishes or even having a late night snack. Because it is such a versatile surface, kitchen island lights are an important addition to any home.
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.
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.
A "kitchen design of all drawers" provides 50 percent more storage than a conventional one. In addition, the optimized appearance of the design exudes style and sophistication while combining functionality with an overall aesthetic appeal.
