Stools are the most compact kitchen island seating idea, as they slide neatly under the counter without a back protruding into the walkway. But even a simple stool has so much potential for customisation! Choose from natural wood for a classic and minimalist look, or make it more contemporary with metal frames or a plastic seat.
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.
Get the balance right between contemporary and rustic styles by choosing a freestanding kitchen island that combines traditional craftsmanship with a modern feature, such as a sleek contemporary – and very practical – worktop.
