Islands with table & chairs

PekeMarch 30, 2013

How did you design your island if you put a table with it? Does your table fit under the countertop overhang? How big is the overhang? Did you have to put supports for the granite?

I need a 8' wide by 4' island. I am thinking about making the island taller so a table can fit under the counter top ledge. I have plenty of room to pull the table out & put in extension leaves for more seating for dinner parties.

Normal use would have the table pushed under the ledge lengthwise. I am worried about supports for the granite getting in the way of pushing the table in.

I hope I explained this well enough. I will try to find a picture.
Thanks,
Peke

Couldn't find a picture. It would be in the shape of a T.

The built in island would have storage in it. It would be the horizontal part of the T and be 8' wide. The table would be vertical and perpendicular to the island.

Has anyone seen anything like this?

Thanks! Peke
