Does your kitchen lack space or storage? A kitchen island is your answer to these questions. It adds both and can even act as additional seating and cabinetry.
In this post, Marcela Montoya Remodeling, your top choice in home remodeling, shares a list of key measurements to consider when designing your kitchen island.
To allow enough room for moving around the kitchen island, plan for at least 35.4 inches of space between the island and fixed items. If no one will walk behind it, then the minimum distance behind a seating area to a wall or other objects is about 23.6 inches. A minimum of 35.4 inches of space will allow a person to edge behind, and a minimum of about 43.3 inches will provide comfortable walking space behind seated people.
The most common height for benchtops is about 35.4 inches, but interior design experts cite that bench heights of up to 37.4 inches or higher are also popular. Low benchtops are about 36.2 inches. About 43.3 inches is the optimal height for a raised dining area at your island.
Standard depths for kitchen island benches range from 23.6 to 47.2 inches. If your benchtop is 29.5 inches high, aim for about 18 inches of leg room underneath.
