Does a kitchen island have to be attached to the floor?

Some islands may not have to be attached to the floor. Smaller kitchen islands should be secured to the floor so they do not slide or tilt if someone leans or pushes against the island. If you turn a standard kitchen island base cabinet upside down, you will discover a void space about 4-inches deep.

How wide should a kitchen island be?

The average size of a kitchen island is about 3 by 6½ feet (1,000 by 2,000 millimeters). This would typically have a surrounding clearance zone of about 40 inches (1,000 millimeters). But an island’s size is usually determined by the distances around it, so it makes sense that larger rooms can allow for bigger islands.

How do you install an island in a small kitchen?

  • Add Storage. Make the most of your island by choosing a version with shelves, cabinets, or drawers within the base.
  • Raise the Bar. If you don’t have room for an island in the center of your space, position it perpendicular to the cabinetry or a wall.
  • Consider a Console.
  • Combine Your Island and Dining Table.
