Is our kitchen island big enough for a hob?

7 January, 2016

We are considering a hob on a kitchen island.

The island would be 180cm by 80cm, and we would put an induction hob in the middle.

Is this enough room in terms of splatter and general space for prep?

I would be especially interested if anyone already has a hob on an island this size.

Many thanks!

    Hi - in UK that's an acceptable size and as a designer I would say that's totally fine - although most islands tend to be 900mm deep. In USA you'd need a bit more depth behind your hob - it's a min of 12inches clear landing space one side and 15inches clear the other side of hob then 9inches behind.
