Kitchen islands used to be the area where friends and family would gather as well as providing that extra counter space we cooks love so much! Kitchen islands are now not just an area to have extra counter space. They can include a stove top, prep sink, small fridge, microwave, wine cooler, bookcase, and numerous other items for the kitchen.
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.
When choosing a light for your kitchen take your time and find a light that will fit the space that your are trying to light. You do not want to have a light that is to over powering. But at the same time you do not want a light that is undersized. One key design factor with lighting is that you want it to be noticed but you do not want it to be the total focal point of your kitchen.
