Having considered what you want the primary function of your island to be then it is time to think about the many types and styles there are to choose from. From over-sized furniture-like pieces that accommodate the entire family in seating to islands on wheels that provide additional workspace with location flexibility, the possibilities abound. There are even two-level islands that offer a cooking zone and a gathering area all in one, with just enough separation to keep the sauces from the homework papers.
The normal counter top height of the lower cabinets, including the island is 36". One approach is to install a raised bar area along the living area length of the island. The standard bar height is 42" , making it 6" above the level of the island counter top. Seating required standard bar stools with a seating height of 30". Minimum bar overhang is 12".
