STAINLESS CABINETS FOR LOWER LEVEL? WOOD ABOVE?
Enough space. If you want your entertaining island to be the center of your party, plan it wisely*. Be sure you have enough space (36" to 60") behind it for guests to pull out stools without hitting a wall. Give yourself wide enough work aisles (42" to 48"), to not bump into your guests on either end. Put appliances guests are likely to use, such as icemakers, near the end so they're easier to reach without interrupting your work flow. Plan a comfortable overhang (15" for counter height, 12" for bar height), for seating, as well. Too short and guests will bump their knees.
A simple square leg with a recessed detail is used here to hold up the extended overhang of this traditionally-styled island. In this case, there's no apron connecting the leg to the island cabinets.
AFTER: New black bamboo floors replaced the previous laminate flooring. The support beam over the kitchen island is engineered wood made by compressing several types of exotic woods together. The cross cut determines the wood's unique design.
