Dimensions - Hi, can you tell me what is the distance between the 2 rows of cabinets, and also what the width of the island is (at base where it's narrower and the worktop)? Thank you!

Hi Raluca,

The island (worktop surface) is 1050mm wide and 2500mm in length. the base of the island is 700mm wide. The distance from the cabinets on the left to the worktop of the island is 1300mm and 1050mm from the right.

LWK Kitchens London added this to How to Design the Perfect U-shaped Kitchen to Suit Your Space
Make room for an islandTypically, you need a much larger space if you want to include an island within this layout. As a rule of thumb, U-shapes with islands generally require a minimum of a 1m walkway on all sides between the cabinetry and the island’s worktop. As the units around the island are 650mm deep, and given that islands are normally between 1m and 1.2m deep, this means the room would need to be at least 4.3m wide. We tend to recommend a minimum width of 4.6m for this layout to allow optimum clearance around the island. Comparatively, for an open-plan space, the depth would need to be a minimum of 2.6m. In this instance you would have one long back wall with two short wings forming the ‘U’ and the kitchen island in-between. Usually, one of the shorter wings would contain the tall housing, and the long back wall would house either the sink or hob, with the alternative on the island. Depending on the location of windows, the shorter run of units on the other side often provides additional worktop space for small appliances, such as toasters, blenders and coffee machines.Get expert advice on choosing the perfect island to fit your kitchen
