Keep in mind that Island Lighting has several more functions than the name would suggest. While it does serve as a highly functional and decorative lighting solution for above a kitchen island, it is also a recommended light source above bars and dining rooms tables as well. Additionally, Mini Pendants are frequently used above kitchen islands instead of island lights.

Things to Consider

There are several factors to consider when determining which solution is ideal for your home, here are a few tips from our lighting professionals:

  • Determine the location of the power source or junction boxes. Islands with multiple junction boxes will typically utilize multiple Mini Pendants. Islands with one junction box will either use a standard island light or a track lighting kit with pendants.
  • There are several factors to consider when selecting island lights that are both decorative and functional. Kitchen Islands will have a variety of junction box configurations. Kitchens with one junction box will require the use of a standard island light or track system with 2 or more mini pendants. Islands with multiple junction boxes will use multiple mini pendants. Due to the tasks that take place on a kitchen island, highly functional lighting is recommended.
  • Island Lighting for Dining Room Tables – island lights are also used regularly above dining room tables, sometimes this is a nice change to the typical chandelier over larger tables in the dining room.
