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.
Some newer kitchen island ideas include the following features: rolling islands that can be used where a large island won't fit, granite-topped islands, and islands with furniture like features such as pilasters. New homebuyers aren't the only ones that should consider a kitchen island design for their kitchen. Some older homes with an awkward kitchen floor plan with limited space can also benefit from a kitchen island design idea. Closed off kitchens have been transformed into more open looking kitchens by lowering existing walls half way to forms islands between the kitchen and nearby living space.
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.
