Adding an island is the most common way to achieve multiple work centres in a kitchen. An island suits many modern house styles where there is enough space and can provide several small work stations along its perimeter. It is also a great place to present a buffet when entertaining.
The provision of an extra sink in the kitchen is a great way to create an extra work station and greater versatility for two or more people working in the kitchen.
Carefully planned lighting can be your kitchen's best asset.
The most efficient and effective kitchen lighting plans have a combination of ambient, task, and general lighting. These include overhead lights but also undercabinet lighting, which is now commonly used in kitchen design, along with recessed lights. Decorative pendant lighting can make a statement as well as serve a purpose - make sure that all areas of your kitchen are lit appropriately for their purpose before getting into aesthetics, but for shades and hanging lights that you will see every day, make sure you choose something that fits with your kitchen's decor and your personal style.
