Adding square legs to an island
Now that I have explored furniture kicks (see thread I started on this subject linked below), I am now exploring using square legs on my island.
I have been endeavoring to make my large (10 foot 5 inch) island look a bit more like furniture. My style is transitional leaning a bit towards traditional. I have been warned on the thread on furniture kicks that my island might be too large and too multi-functional (given prep sink and induction cooktop) to be appropriate for furniture details. Still, I do prefer the look.
After seeing the inspiration photos on the thread linked below, I think I can add furniture base/pllnth board under the over hang areas. I would also like to add some square legs under the overhang as well. Our thoughts were to add 2 or even 3 of these square legs (say 4 inch) on the underside of the overhang against the false doors on the island backside. We were not planning to add them on the outside edge of counter as we feel that would take necessary seating width (island is 51 inches wide and we are planning on seating for 5).
What are the rules for adding square legs? Must you always have 4? Can 2 or three work? What style would you envision on the legs (maybe router some lines as Mags did). Here is what we are thinking of doing. I would love your thoughts. I need to give our cabinet maker the update ASAP .... so please respond.
Thanks in advance.
Here is the business side of our island -- I can't see that we could add any legs to this side.
