First, make sure you have planned for the space that is needed. Kitchen islands take up more space than you might think. For example, the typical island is two feet wide with a one-foot overhang of counter top. Plus, you will need at least another two feet for chairs and a place to sit. In addition to that, you will want a minimum of three feet on each side of the island. For the most part, you will need 12 feet to make an island work.
