They not only give you the right illumination that allows you to get the work done on the kitchen countertop, but also act as great décor additions even during daytime. When natural ventilation takes over, pendant lights still seem to retain their enigmatic charm.

Add another dynamic by creating variation in the height of your island. Using the island for multiple purposes, like eating and food prep, will both maximize the utility and make it feel like two totally different spaces. For example, add an appliance to one level (like a sink or stovetop) and create a breakfast bar on a higher tier.
