Size of islands

I see you've chosen to mirror certain elements on both islands while designing them for different functions. Do you think it is important that they be the same width?Could you please tell me the approximate size of the islands? And how much space is needed between them?

Congratulations on a simply beautiful design!

Pathway between the two islands would have to be 36" per code. All walkways need to be a minimum of 36". I feel that you would want them mirrored images of each other as well as the same width. I think that the staggering in the width would throw off your since of symmetry. Hopefully Exquisite Kitchen Design will respond to your question about the island sizes.
Cheers!

Thank you for your question. The two island are different sizes. The prep island is approximately 36" x 111" and the cleanup/breakfast bar island is 48" x 126". The two island relate nicely to each other and to the surrounding space, and yet are not to "matchy". I think this makes a more sophisticated and layered design. As for clearance, there is a 42" walkway between.
Hope that helps. Best to you!

In looking at the sizes of these two islands and the overall space, I completely agree that the two can be of different sizes, but in a smaller space, I still think that if two islands were going to attempt to be done, you would want to keep them more similar to each other. In a space as large as this, they each hold their own giving a unique feel and look to the space! It is beautiful!
Cheers!
