How much space do you need for island kitchen?

A kitchen with central island is ideal for those who have a large room, to allow the movement of everyday life. It requires a surrounding free space of at least 120 cm: so each element must be placed at this distance (the wall, the worktop or an appliance).

It shall be permitted to open simultaneously doors and appliances, having enough space for passage.

How to configure the kitchen with island

It is important to understand the use of the central island: whether it will be used for cooking, for washing or simply as a worktop.

According to its future use, the floor connections for gas or water discharges and the associated electrical installations will be prepared.

For example, if you plan to use the island for partial functions or as a snack top, you can also use a smaller model without the need for additional surrounding space for the opening of the doors.
