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.
When doing a complete remodel of a kitchen, something important to consider before paint colors or cabinet finishes is what kind of functionality you want your kitchen to have. The standard kitchen activities such as cooking, cleaning, and storing food are givens, but what kind of entertaining would you like to do in your kitchen? If you want a kitchen that can serve as a space for more than simply dining, then a kitchen island is something you'll definitely want to consider.
If you decide to go the smaller-sized route when constructing your island that doesn't necessarily mean that you have to give up surface area. Adding a second level of a different height to your design will give the piece additional functionality. Multiple levels can be used for different functions such as: a place for a cutting board or book shelf, or as a breakfast bar with stool beneath it. These alternative designs can help give your kitchen island a more customized appeal.
