Using two 36″ base cabinets along the back (or any other combination that adds up to 72” wide) and two 15″ four drawer base cabinets on each end at the front – creates a practical desk area that’s 42″ wide x 24″ deep. Check the total space first, because the island won’t fit in small kitchens since the total dimension of the cabinets is 72” x 49”.
Think about these uses for this particular island:
- Have baking utensils stored in the drawers for easy retrieval while decorating a cake.
- Answering emails while waiting for dinner to be ready
- Help your child with her algebra while cooking sauce.
- Create a very practical and working hobby area.
Don’t forget to install an electrical receptacle on the side of the cabinet for the laptop. Drill a hole in the countertop and install a grommet for the cord to pass through.
