Make the Right Aisles

It happens many times that homeowners have too large island in their small kitchen and too small island in their large space. So thinking about how the people use the room after the island is built. The minimum aisle between cabinets should be 36 inches. For one cook in the kitchen, 42 inches aisle is ideal and 48 inches should be for a kitchen with two cooks or more. If the aisles are too spacious; up to 5 or 6 feet, it will also become a problem that demands the cooks to walk much.

Shape and Finish the Island Creatively

To design a kitchen island, you should firstly consider the available space. Any shape of the island will become a focal point if the size fits perfectly. Use special materials or finishing to the cabinet or countertop to make eye-catchy look in a large kitchen, such as white kitchen island with glossy black countertops. Besides, add details like paneling the sides and backs or wrapping the furniture will make a nice look.

Apply Some Seats

When you design a kitchen island, then you also should apply some seats as the place for the homeowners to sit facing the island. For a 30 inch height of island, you should seats that provide at least 18 inches clearance under the surface. Meanwhile, for an island with 36 inch of height, you need 15 inches of clearance. And for 42 inch island, you need to make 12 inches clearance. Besides, provide enough room for the elbows too by placing every stool in 24 inches of distance. If the clearance is not enough, everyone who sits on the stools will put their knees on the side or pull the stools up from the island to get more comfortable seat.

Create the Right Design Based on the Function

Design a kitchen island with sink, cook top, oven or only some stools, so it will be more functional. If you have a sink on the island, then place the trash bin and dishwasher nearby. Raise the area for seats so the messy sink area will not bother the guests who sit. Besides, you also install outlet settle in the hidden area to make the kitchen less messy.
