When it comes to planning a kitchen remodel, incorporating enough counter space is crucial. For this reason, many people choose to add an island into their kitchen design. Watch this video for tips on choosing a size for your kitchen island design near Dutchess County, NY.

Today, many people want kitchen islands that offer plenty of space for food preparation. To help ensure that your kitchen island provides you with the work area that you’re hoping for, do not choose one that is less than 3 feet wide and 5 feet long. However, the space around the island is equally important, so leave a minimum of 42” on all sides to allow room for 1 person to work and another to walk by.
