Freestanding islands, such as tables and carts, are often used in small kitchens to keep the room from feeling cramped. They were generally less permanent than a built-in. Built-in islands look like furniture. They are typically custom-made and can include any kind of island amenity, including seating, appliances, storage, and fixtures.
An island should be at minimum 2 feet long in order to be useful, but ideally at least 3 feet. If you don’t have enough space to allow this, we would recommend a mobile butcher block station or a simple table if you just need a bit more prep space.
Lighting is obviously a key element of any kitchen, regardless of whether or not it features an island. Pendant lights are generally the most preferred choice for kitchen islands, and if you need some additional help in choosing the right pendants for your kitchen, check out these stunning pendant light inspirations. You might also decide to add a layer of recessed lighting as well, making it possible for you to switch between focused functional lights and soft ambient lighting whenever required. The rule of three is another perennial favorite that never seems to go out of style when it comes to kitchen lighting.
