Fixture Size

First, you should determine the size of the fixtures for your kitchen island needs. Many people make the mistake of investing in lighting fixtures that are too small because they think their space is small. You should choose lighting fixtures that are large enough to adequately light your kitchen island space.

Fixture Length

Another common mistake people make when choosing kitchen island lighting is not measuring for fixture length. You don’t want your lighting fixtures to hit your head when washing dishes, nor do you want them so far away they don’t do much good.

You’ll want to match your kitchen island lighting design to the rest of your kitchen. Consider such trends as black matte finishes with brass for a beautiful, timeless look, or choose a glass pendant light that melts into the decor.
