Consumer Reports Island Size
Browsed through Consumer Reports Kitchen magazine at Sams Club today. Read that the number one mistake as per kitchen decorators....trying to squeeze an island into a 12 ft wide kitchen. It says people do it, but they should not. It did not explain further.
What am I missing?
Designing our kitchen with plans to widen up long and 10 feet narrow kitchen by squeezing two feet from our laundry room, so we can add an island. The new design will be 144", 12 feet. Planning on an island 42 inches wide.
Thinking, 24" cabinets on one side, none on the other, leaves 120 inches. Minus 44 inches for island - 42 island plus 1" on each side for overhang, leaves 76 inches or 38" on either side for walking.
