Kitchen islands are sought-after surfaces that provide valuable prep area, a place to set up a buffet, and even an option for casual dining. Many kitchen islands have cabinets below with an extended countertop that stools can be pulled up to for additional seating. Make sure your kitchen island is functioning as well as it can by providing plenty of lighting directly above. While can light are popular, they don’t really enhance the style of the space. These kitchen island lighting solutions,on the other hand, are totally packed with style. The hardest part will be picking your favorite.

Placed directly above a kitchen island, this lighting fixture helps to define the space while still making a style statement. The thin cords the lights are suspended from don’t interfere with allowing your eye to travel through the kitchen.
A Pop of Color
Small pendant lights are a great opportunity to reinforce an accent color. Kitchens tend to lack bright colors and pendant lights such as these give you an opportunity to change all that. Purchase as few or as many as you need, depending upon the size of your kitchen island. If you want to tie the same lighting in somewhere else, consider hanging a matching pendant light above the kitchen sink as well.
