In order to make a kitchen island work, you need a fairly large kitchen space to ensure enough space around the island to move freely. If your space is large enough to accommodate an island, then a kitchen island will provide more counter space and more storage space. In an extremely large kitchen you can create two separate work triangles, or reduce the size of the main work triangle, increasing the efficiency of your design. To help you with the design element of incorporating an island an experienced designer is input will be invaluable. The arrangement of the appliances and service supplies may change when you add an island into your design.
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.
These tips are great to consider when designing a kitchen island, but it is always OK to stray away from these tips in order to create a personalized piece for your space. Consider your type of lifestyle and the goals for your kitchen space then go from there! It is important to consider the costs you are willing to spend on this new kitchen addition, as well as creating a cohesive and functional design. Most importantly, have fun when designing this new piece and you wont go wrong.
