If your style is more classic or particularly opulent, a chandelier adds a focal point that’s guaranteed to draw the eye! Glass chandeliers reflect light beautifully to brighten the island, but are also subtle enough to blend in when turned off.
Your island will need to be placed far enough away to avoid cutting into the path between sink, stove, and fridge – otherwise known as the working triangle. This path needs to be kept free to help you work as efficiently as possible. This can make a difference in open concept main floor layouts in small homes. If your island is going to be jutting out into the sitting area, maybe an island won’t work in your space.
In a contemporary kitchen designed for hosting, LED strips or track lights under the island counter are a show-stopping look. An elegant line of under counter lighting creates a border around your island and is particularly effective beneath a glass counter to suit a modern or industrial style.
