It is essentially what the colors, shapes, materials and functionality range of the kitchen zone will be and that sets the tone for the rest of the home design combinations.

The number you should keep in mind is 42 inches -that is the minimum amount of space you must have between the unit and any surrounding objects. Here is the place to consider what your countertop island will be used for – will it be a space for preparing meals, or for casual dining. You, of course, can combine both; the design could include a 36-inch-high work countertop for food preparation and a 42-inch-high bar for the meals. And also you can have multiple islands and each can be devoted to a different set of activities.
For casual seating at your island, you may want bar stools or pub-style seating that will fit your kitchen island design. Measure carefully the height of the island top by considering the distance from the floor to the underside of the surface – that will help you to ensure that there is enough room for proper leg movement before determining the style of the seating that will work best for you.
