An island should be at minimum 2 feet long in order to be useful, but ideally at least 3 feet. If you don’t have enough space to allow this, we would recommend a mobile butcher block station or a simple table if you just need a bit more prep space.
How large is your kitchen? 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. You might not be able to get all your items in your kitchen island, but you should try to get at least your top 5 features.
Simply put…yes. Kitchen islands are normally the main work and gathering spot in the kitchen, as a result, a lot of thought goes into them. Anybody who has a good sense of proportion and who also takes care of the planning for the proposed uses of the island can easily figure this out. But that is not everybody. A kitchen cabinet designer can assist, particularly when related to more than just having a working kitchen. Give us a call and our designer on staff will be able to help you through the design process.
