Lighting above the kitchen island
Kitchen island heights range from 90cm to 105cm. It depends on the chosen height of the chairs at the island and the purpose of the island. So it is recommended to install lighting around 75cm above the kitchen island, because at such a height the lighting is comfortable both: using the island as a workbench and sat down to eat breakfast or other meal. Fixtures in the kitchen over the island should be selected properly, so that they negotiate the kitchen interior and the interior of the rest of the apartment. Especially it is important when the kitchen is connected with the living room and/or dining room. Since the kitchen island is typically used as additional worktop and dining place, so it is quite long. Thats why designers recommend to hang two or more lighting fixtures over the kitchen island, depending on the length of the island. There should be sufficient enough light to illuminate the entire table top.
