At least 42". Look a your plan....the size of your oven door and dishwasher door fully open, do you need to get around it? Use frog tape or large piece of cardboard the size of your island and lay it out on the floor. This will help you visualize it.

I have about that plus a couple of inches and am very happy with it.

We only have 36" and it works just fine. 42" is nice, but 36" is minimum passing and still works perfectly functionally. I had people advise against it online, but I am glad I trusted my gut and put the island in.

residential design criteria suggests 42"-48", however building code requires to have minimum 32" of unobstructed clearance. every kitchen I have designed, I always use at least 42"

@Ikziemke - I am glad that you said you only have 36" and it works. my kitchen is currently being installed. the walkways were suppose to be 40" but due to some electrical problems they ended up being 37". I am a bit concerned about the spacing but glad to know it working for you.

36" is the absolute min. and 42" is much preferred for ease of movement when more than one person in kitchen.
