Space around island

ptn96June 17, 2014
Finally in our new house -- sorta. They aren't out yet so it's a mess right now. Here is a picture of the kitchen. I would like to have a bar in the kitchen and wanted to extend the island but there is 36 inches between cabinets and island and 38 in between island and pantry. Pantry had sliding doors.

36 inches is the 'standard' distance, but would feel tight.

If you demolish the pantry you could do it, but there is really no point.

In a complete gut redo, you could do a peninsula, but you don't have enough room for any of that as the kitchen exists.

Could you extend the length only to incorporate an area for bar stools. An island with waterfall ends would be awesome.

How far down would a waterfall type island go?

Adding cabinets along the wall between the pantry and fridge could create a c shaped kitchen with more space. Lengthening the island with bar on the side facing the pantry too would creat a complete feeling. Supplying a bar, large island, and more cabinet/counter space.
