Suggestions for Legs or Corbels on Island Overhang
We're looking for some thoughts/pictures, suggestions of kitchen islands with legs and corbels.
The cabinets are being built by our contractor. The design is to include a 7'x2' island with a 10 inch overhang with furniture legs on overhang. I've seen alot of debate on the forum about islands. We're OK with the size of the island and overhang based on the way was house is laid out.Island will contain microwave drawer, prep sink and pull out trash.
My husband is not keen on the legs (feels they're hard to clean around, limit seating/access and pose a tripping hazard)due to space of pathway between one end of the island and basement door. We are thinking of corbels instead. Told designers this. Designers feel legs make island look more like a piece of furniture, since it is seen from family room and living room and corbels are just "ordinary".
We appreciate any help you can give. We are about in the middle of our kitchen/dining/family room/foyer renovation. Oh my-thank you for all the previous posts on remodeling fatigue!
