    Keep in mind that you want a minimum of 24" space per seat. Based on 78" you are at a slightly more comfortable 26", not including the thickness of the post. Depending on that thickness, it will be a close call. You will lose some space and will likely be under 24" of space per seat. Assuming it will be open behind the legs, there will be some leg room around each post. Consider who will be sitting in those seats most of the time and if all 3 will be filled at the same time often. That my help you decide right there.

    Thanks for the quick response! I appreciate it. I guess this is a function vs. form decision, but the aspects for consideration you shared are insightful. Thanks.

    Mine is on the countertop - with soap dispenser and faucet. Got the same finish, so it blends.

    My builder advised against air switches as they have constant problems and don't last long. Is this true?

    Is this the 10" hood that comes with its own power source or the 24"deep with separate power?

    I would have no less than 38", preferably 40" to 42" if you have the space. See the attached picture for another idea on the galley island that really enhances the feel of the kitchen.

    Not my pic so I can't tell you how big the island is... but your typical countertop overhang with no brackets or supports is 12-13" with a granite/quartz countertop. Also, because this has 4 seats, Id say it's at least 7' wide, but I'm guessing.

    You mean 7 ft long

    It's about 9' or so - and thanks, it's one of my favorite kitchen layouts with the sink off center.
  • emilycole
    What size undermount sink should be used for an island about 8' x 3'?

    Pendants are usually centered on an island, but they don't have to be. There's often some wiggle room in the rule book. Designers use their trained eyes to know where a light should be placed, but when in doubt, center it!

    I agree with decocco and would add that you can also take cues from other elements in the space (cabinetry, windows, ceiling design, etc.)

    It does come from one light box...unfortunately it's discontinued. It was from Pottery Barn. It had pot rack hooks that we decided not to use.

    It's 36" though it does look narrower due to the angle of the photo.

      What Houzz contributors are saying:

      KitchenLab Interiors added this to Kitchen Solution: The Main Sink in the IslandJun 21, 2011

      When designing a kitchen with the main sink in the island, it’s important to resist the desire to center everything. You don’t want to bump into the person cooking at the range, and you want to maximize counter space to one side of the sink. I like to put in the dishwasher first, then the sink. That way both of those utilities are ganged together at one end, leaving as much counter space as possible to the other side.

      KitchenLab Interiors added this to Kitchen Details: The Right Edge for Your CountertopJun 13, 2011

      Square and standard thickness. Less is often more. In a clean-lined and simple kitchen, a basic 3cm-square profile works best. Each kitchen has something that stands out and says “look at me.” Sometimes it’s the tile, sometimes it’s the lighting, and sometimes it’s the countertop material. I make it a rule to avoid having everything shout for attention; that away there’s some breathing room. In this kitchen the countertops are more quiet while the tile takes a bit more of center stage.

      KitchenLab Interiors added this to Kitchen Layouts: A Vote for the Good Old GalleyJan 6, 2011

      If you don't have a lot of room, putting your main sink in the island can be a great option. Even better if it's a farm sink, which gives you an extra 3 inches in back of the faucet due to the sink being pulled forward (rather than having the 3-inch strip of stone required for the front of standard undermount sink).
