Modern Threshold Kitchen Island Idea
If you pick an island that’s too large, you’ll end up squeezing past it or bumping into it. Pick one that’s too small, and it may not be reachable when you pull ingredients from the fridge. Find several islands you like, and then tape their dimensions to your kitchen floor. Practice moving around the tape marks for a week or so to determine which the size works best. If you plan to use your island as a work surface for food preparation, it’s best to have an appropriate top, such as butcher block, tile, granite, or stainless steel.
