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.
The easiest and most economical way to update your kitchen is with new lighting and one of the most popular kitchen lights is an island light. Kitchen island lighting are available in several variations and colors.
One of the largest pros to a kitchen island is having that space for friends or family members to congregate in the kitchen area. One can place bar stools, or high seated chairs up against a kitchen island which invites that comfort zone. Most of us are aware that people tend to congregate to the kitchen area, after all it is the heart of the home.
The choice of drawers for your lower cabinets provides much more flexibility, which means that kitchen elements can be easily stored and retrieved. Baseline drawers are also better for storing large items such as pots, pans and casseroles. While the deployment trays provide similar functionality, they require additional cabinets: deployment doors and trays.
