Island in My Kitchen
December 29, 2012
We are beginning a remodel. I want to add an island b/c the corner b/w the range and the sink crowds quickly. I need more prep surface and cabinet space and I hate the constant trekking back and forth b/w the counter and the pantry. A contractor said my space is big enough for an island, but can I make it big enough to double as a dinner table for a family of four? I'm not sure where to place it, what shape it should be (rectangular or something else). My kitchen is basically 10' x 10' with the bay window adding a 7' x 17" bump out and the pantry nook adding a (roughly) 4' x 4' bump (see photos). What size and shape island can I fit in my kitchen?
