The kitchen is likened to the heart of a house because the activities that can be done in it are not just cooking.

Eating together even just a casual chat is often done in this kitchen.

It is not surprising that many people deliberately design their kitchen designs as specifically as possible with furniture that supports all of them so that the activities become easy and fun.

The kitchen island is one part of a unique and multifunctional kitchen furniture.

Kitchen Island can be used to prepare food, breakfast or relax, cooking activities and more than that kitchen island can be the main accent in the kitchen.

In its development, many other functions were transferred to the island starting from the sink, stove, and wine cooler.

All are valid, as long as the basic rules of kitchen use are still fulfilled, namely for washing, mixing, and cooking.

But there are exceptions such as if the kitchen area is not large (such as in an apartment) island use can be transferred to one with a dining table to save space (like the peninsula).

Kitchen Island with Seating Ideas

Many families are accustomed to eating breakfast in a clean kitchen on the island, with a simple menu of food such as fried rice or bread.

In addition, they often use the kitchen island as an area to entertain guests or business partners while discussing important matters.

If this concept is what you want for your kitchen, then make your kitchen island into a breakfast area.

The thing to do in designing a kitchen island so that it can be used for breakfast is to add a breakfast bar on the island side.

As per its function, namely, as a breakfast area or entertaining guests, this island bar breakfast has two types of designs, namely Single-tier and Double-tier island.

A Single-tier island is an island that only consists of one table and the most commonly used so that the breakfast area is a countertop that extends out.

Whereas a Double-tier island is a feature of a table (bar) raised on an island and can be used in almost all designs.

Their ability to separate space for different functions can be useful with all types of kitchen island ideas.

After you get the desired kitchen island type, it’s time for you to add the seated clay (chairs/stools) there.

Many types of chairs can be used for your island bar, so adjust to the island’s design and needs.

The most important thing is to determine the number of seats to be used.

Most existing kitchen islands use 4 chairs/stools there because they are considered to have fulfilled their needs, no less and no more.

After you decide to choose an island with 4 bar stools in your kitchen, you must design it island to fit in with your stools, and according to some interior designers, that the standard length of a 4-seat island bar is 10 inch and the standard depth with a sink is 42 inches.

According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association mentioned by one of the designers at houzz.com, Minimum clearances for each seated diner are:

1. 30 “high tables/counters: 30” w by 19 “d counter/table space with at least 19” of clear knee space.

2. 36 “counters: 24” w by 15 “d counter/table space with at least 15” of clear knee space.

3. 42 “high counters: 24” wide by 12 “deep counter space with 12″ of clear knee space. and according to homestratosphere.com, The standard length of a 4-seat island is 10”. The standard depth with a sink is 42 ″.
