Need help on size of kitchen island
June 8, 2014 in Design Dilemma
This a new construction. Would like a cooktop on the island along with seating on opposite side, what is considered an average width?

Between 3 to 4 feet would be typical with seating.

To safely do an island cooking zone with prep on the island instead of the perimeter requires an island at least 48'' wide and 96'' long. Prep is 70% of the time you spend in your kitchen whereas actual cooking is only 10%. Social islands are better designejd having your prep on the island and the cooking zone on the perimeter where it is much easier and cheaper to vent.
