There is nothing worse than finding out after your remodel or new home construction that the kitchen island is not an efficient size for the space and it’s too late to do anything about it. One of the biggest mistakes I have seen people make is getting a house plan and just taking for granted that the kitchen is drawn correctly to fit the space. Typically, plans come with just a kitchen blocked out, not really thought-out

 

This guide will give you the confidence and the tools to:

  • Formulate the maxim length and width your island can be.
  • Ergonomic calculations for height and depth of counter overhang for seating at the island.
  • Minimum and maximum clearances around the kitchen island.
  • Details on how to transition two countertop materials together.
  • Rules to designing the main sink on the island.
  • Tips to designing cooktops and ranges at the kitchen island.
  • Recommendations for storage solutions to accommodate island cooking.
  • A visual guide to island shapes and the benefits to each.

Put the ball in your court by following my step by step instructions on the perfect island for your new kitchen!
