While the standard aisle width guideline of 36” allows two people to pass, you could have a clearance as small as 32” if the spot is not high traffic. Take newspaper or painter’s tape and plan a floor outline of where you’d like your island to sit with proper clearance. Test your floor plan and adjust accordingly.
If you’re starved for counter space in your small kitchen, have you considered adding a small kitchen island? It may seem counterproductive to add an island to an already-small kitchen, but there is a great selection of kitchen islands designed for small spaces.
The Oasis folding kitchen island ($250) is ingenious, thanks to its ability to fold nearly flat. It’s made of stainless steel and solid wood, including a parquet butcher-block top, to ensure durability even in the busiest of small kitchens.
Whether your space lacks a proper dining table or you’re looking to create a more casual bar-seating option, adding low-profile seating to the island is an easy way to increase functionality and make the environment more social for both guests and the cook. Create a breakfast bar or dining table, and leave a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath when not in use.
