Excerpt from Kitchen Island With Storage Add Space And Much More :
Islands can be beautiful and enhance the look of any kitchen. Many of them have the look of fine furniture more than that of kitchen cabinetry. They are also extremely functional. You can plan to have a second sink in your island and will be amazed at how often you'll use it. You can include a stove top and hood, especially if you're using your island as a divider between the kitchen and another room. You can have it built with a raised eating shelf where you can add some bar stools for a functional seating area, you can have plenty of extra storage room, or you might decide to include decorative areas, such as glassed-in sections for displaying beautiful dishes.
Even smaller kitchens can accommodate small islands as long as you make sure that you have plenty of room to move around the island while you're working. A rule of thumb says you need 4' of space between the island and kitchen cabinets and appliances on all sides. That may not be feasible for you, but don't try to cut your travel space down too far, because it will probably cause congestion. One solution to having an island in a smaller space is to install one with pull-out shelves that will give you the extra work space you need it and can then be pushed in to not take up as much room.
