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.
For the most use, select one that has a towel bar for hooks and textiles and open shelving below. Locking wheels are helpful if you plan on moving your island often, although restaurant grade work tables are often lightweight enough to move without needing wheels.
The Elmwood Kitchen Cart by Altra ($349) is a modern and beautiful kitchen island. The industrial-chic cart has multiple shelves, including racks for 12 bottles of wine, in a cool-toned rustic oak finish to hold whatever you need stylishly. It also has wheels so you can use it as a bar cart or anywhere you need a little extra storage.
There are many different ways you can approach this decision, and since an island takes up a significant amount of floor space it’s worth it to take time to make every element of its design intentional.
