How far should island be from counters?
In my plans, my island is 48 inches away from the oven/fridge cabinet wall and 45 inches away from my dishwasher/sink cabinet wall(kitchen is an L shape...My island is 54x56. I have some room to move it as the dining room and a large hall are the open ends of the room. So I am wondering...what is a nice roomy measurement to have between island and cabinets? I want plenty of space for little ones to be at my feet, as they always are(we have 5 kids) but not too much space...any sources on this?(I searched but could not find any) or ideas/reccs? I feel like 48 inches is a nice big space? Thoughts? Thanks!
