Which island bar support?

In this small guest house kitchen I was originally going with a freestanding IKEA island. Open storage on one side and seating on the other. I have room for approximately 48” x 30”. The cabinets shown in this pic are the ones I’m planning on using.

Then after some input from GW I was convinced that base cabinets with an overhang would be more functional. It gives me a spot for a trash pullout plus I can have an outlet installed which will be very useful. Based on the size of the space I would have to use the 15” deep IKEA cabinets.

This is kind of how it would look. Except this looks like a 10”or 12” overhang, mine would be 15”

But since I’m having to use the 15” deep base instead of the standard 24” it looks a bit off kilter to me. I like the idea of enclosing the ends like these.

Or I can do a leg at each corner.

Or I can do corbels.

Pros or cons?
