Your design for the new island in your kitchen should also include having the right lighting. Ambient lighting, although it may add drama to your kitchen, is not enough for eating, chopping or stirring. Recessed lightings work well not unless you have very high ceilings. Higher ceilings are challenging to light your island kitchen counter, thus, pendant lights are in this case because they provide direct beams of light to your island.
Besides meal preparation, the kitchen can become a gathering area for family and friends if there is enough space. Since so much happens in the kitchen on a regular basis, getting the layout right is important. The kitchen island can serve as an additional eating area, and food preparation can easily be done there. In a large kitchen, the kitchen island can shorten the distances within the working triangle (sink, refrigerator and range or cooktop) and make it more efficient.
Kitchen islands on wheels are usually topped with either a wooden slab or a metal top for your work surface. They provide extra counter space when you need it and can be wheeled up to any existing counter, sink, or stove if that is what you need. However, when they are not in use, you can stow them away in a corner or along a wall where they might not be very convenient to use, but will be out of the way. One way to free up even more counter space and increase your available work area is to store things underneath your portable island.
