What is the standard size of a kitchen island?

Many homeowners and designers believe that a kitchen island should be the focal point of every kitchen design. The island has evolved into the symbol of the contemporary kitchen, serving as its 20th-century counterpart to the fireplace. Let’s face it, a standard-size kitchen island requires enough space to function flawlessly. A kitchen island must have enough space for people to move around it and operate at a minimum of 4 feet long and slightly more than 2 feet deep.

Don’t even consider an island until your kitchen is at least 8 feet deep and more than 12 feet long. Additionally, a U-shaped kitchen’s layout needs to be at least 10 feet wide in order to fit a standard size island without feeling cramped.
