Chopping food can be a dangerous activity if you don’t have enough light to see what you’re doing. A trio of pendant lights can be an elegant way to boost illumination over an island. It really pays off to make them dimmable if you’re eating at the island too, though. Good lighting for prep work can be painfully bright when you sit down to eat.
If your dream kitchen incorporates an island, and you’re worried you just don’t have room, think of other options, like a mobile island on castor wheels that can be moved about the space, or an island that’s only 18" deep and a bit shorter than most.
If your kitchen is big enough then you should, without a doubt, have a kitchen island added during your renovation. It’s a great thing that adds storage, place to eat and many other things. It is the ideal place to balance separation and congregation, making sure that hosts can cook and clean while they socialize with their guests. And they can be a great place for kids to do homework under the watchful eyes of their parents
