Maximize natural light by having windows and skylights, and keep kitchen wall surfaces light in color to reflect daylight. Custom kitchen islands work great by using pendant or recessed fixtures to direct light onto the kitchen island and other work areas. Electrical codes will likely require that electrical outlets be located on the sides of fixed kitchen islands, not on the top, to prevent electrical shock.
Material of the Kitchen Cart and Island: They are available in a wide variety of materials including wood, stainless steel or even granite tops. While the stainless steel carts and islands are the easiest to maintain as they do not get scratched or stained very easily, the wood or tile tops are also durable. You need to keep in mind the overall look of your kitchen while choosing the material of the cart or island. For example, if you have a wood finishing in your kitchen, then an oak wood kitchen island or a white kitchen island would be the best choice for you.
The easiest and most economical way to update your kitchen is with new lighting and one of the most popular kitchen lights is an island light. Kitchen island lightings are available in several variations and colors. Island chandeliers are a linear lighting fixture that can span the entire length of your bar or island. These are very popular because they have a lot depth and character. Island lighting is available in several light variations from two light versions to four light versions. Homeowners and designers love these because they have the look and beauty of a chandelier but the light is spread out over the length of your island.
Most timber frame homes are custom built to suit the homeowner‘s preference as to how many bedrooms they need, how the kitchen should be designed, and more. If you are in the planning stage of building your own timber frame house here are some kitchen island designs to help you plan your perfect kitchen. Kitchen islands can expand your workspace, give your kitchen its own personality, and come in a variety of design options.
Allow adequate countertop space on both sides (left and right) of the kitchen island if a sink or cooktop will be used. Include at least 15 inches of countertop space on each side, and if your kitchen is large enough, allow even more space. You can never have too much countertop space in a kitchen. Also, rounded countertop corners help protect everyone from bad bruises -- this is true about all kitchen countertop corners.
