An island is a brilliant centerpiece that will instantly lift the appeal of your kitchen. But planning for it is all about putting practicality ahead of aesthetics! And if you are still stuck when it comes to making decisions about the design of your island, it is best to call in some expert help. At the end of the day, it’s all about designing that beautiful kitchen of your dreams…
Do not be fooled: An island does not have to be rectangular. You can conform the shape to better suit your kitchens space and needs or just to make a dramatic focal point. Rounded, L-shape, and T-shape islands are some of the more common substitutes for rectangles.
Ahmann suggests making your island 3 feet wide, as that tends to look best — although sometimes a width of 2 feet is the best fit. The length can be as few as 4 feet, but he suggests planning for at least 7 feet if you need to accommodate a sink, a dishwasher and a cooktop.
