If you're the no-frills type and don't want to go overboard with the island lighting, then you can opt for the simple ideas mentioned here. First measure the entire length of the island in your kitchen. Then, divide the length by the number of lights you want. Once the number is decided, go on to the market and pick up simple bright bulbs and wires. Now, get an electrician to just hang them in plain glass cases, at equal distances, right above the counter. Or, you can have a single huge dome light hanging right at the center of the island. You have a simple, cost-effective, and bright lighting idea for your island.
Don't forget that, after installation, a chandelier requires regular maintenance. You will need chandelier cleaner to properly care for your light fixture. You need to turn off the power to the fixture before you clean it. Protect the light bulbs by covering them with plastic or baggies and securing them with a rubber band. This will keep the cleanser from getting into the electrical components of the fixture.
When placing ceiling lights, ensure that they are spaced evenly and at a distance of two feet from all four sides. In a large living room, this is particularly necessary. While recessed lighting does help create a mood, it is not great as ambient light (light that allows you to move around comfortably in a space). Also, it is not great in a space with high ceilings and will just waste energy. In smaller rooms, an upward-facing chandelier with a dimmer, along with other portable lamps and accent lights will provide enough ambient lighting.
