Most islands require a slight counter overhang to ensure diners have plenty of legroom when seated. 12 inches is the ideal rough size for an overhang, but the clearance around the island is your first priority.

If you have a big kitchen and your fridge is not near the kitchen island, you might want to have a smaller under counter fridge nearby. If you are installing a cooktop, you should take the space required for a hood or exhaust vent into account. You should make a list of all the things you want in your kitchen island, in order of priority.

If you have space for a lot of cabinetry in your kitchen, the island storage might not be your main priority.
