Opinions on kitchen island countertop needed!
Hi everyone. I have a very specific question I'd like to get opinions about...
We are renovating a smallish kitchen in a second home. Attached (hopefully) is a top-down view of the kitchen. The kitchen island will be long (9.5 ft) and narrow (32"). The space isn't wide enough to accomodate island seating on the long end of the island, so I'm planning to have a 12" overhang on the end closest to the door so we have have a bar stool at that end.
Here's the question--the style of the kitchen is contemporary--so I'm trying to keep the lines clean. When the fabricator came out last Thursday to measure the counters, DH pipes in and says the end of the island with the overhang needs to be elliptical so that people don't hit the corners when walking around the kitchen. (We have an elliptical edge on the island in our current kitchen (10 x 5ft island--elliptical edge on long side of island, and he likes it)
So--what do you think? I'm worried the elliptical edge doesn't fit with the contemporary style (I've scoured HOUZZ looking at island pictures!).
The countertops will have eased edges.,
Thanks for your advice!.
