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.
Demarcate the space in your kitchen that you wish to utilize for the island and check out how close it is to the kitchen counters. Most homeowners tend to forget about leaving enough aisle space ,as they are too focused on the kitchen island itself. If you have a small kitchen, then experts suggest that a minimum of 36 inches is an absolute must, while 42 inches between the counters would be ideal. Having too much space between the counter and the island is not ideal either, as you would be wasting too much time and effort scurrying between the two!
You can start with the kitchen cabinets, countertops, kitchen backsplash, and even look to the walls to get everything in place, but don’t forget about optimizing the kitchen island, too. It can be a spot to store pots and pans, food, and other kitchen gadgets; plus, it can provide more surface area for cooking or working, or a spot for a quick bite to eat.
