Hello. We are starting to construct our home and the kitchen size works out to be 12’x7’8
I wanted suggestions if an island for this dimension is suitable? And if yes what size of an island?
Or should we just do a breakfast counter? Or any other layout that might suit better?
Thanks you in advance for the help.
In this plan the island has been marked and should do good around 4.5*3 or lesser.
One change that may be considered is to move one of the fixed counter to the utility side wall. The open layout then will leave you with a bigger space for island.

Thank you so much for your input. So going for an island is a good option for the kitchen this size? Or should we switch to a breakfast counter?

Is it ok to have Open Kitchen with Drawing Room
It would depend on the other decor of the house but given a choice we would opt for an island kitchen.
Thank you so much @cornerstone. I would prefer an island too. Your suggestion definitely helped! Thanks again! 😊
What about a layout like this kitchen here? Doable for a kitchen of 12*7.8, you think?
Kitchens are the spaces which require plenty of planning and storage options. They also have to be flexible with number of people using them - helpers and owners. You have a very interesting layout and multiple options can be planned based on your need. For your kitchen, I would recommend a breakfast counter adjacent to the open end of the counter facing the dining area.
1. The extended breakfast counter will act like a serving counter. When having your meals, you would want to immediately serve the warm food from the serving counter and not walk inside the kitchen. This is a good practice as you can serve your guests quicker and in a much organized manner. While your meals are on the serving counter, the kitchen is available for other activites like cleaning or preparing of additional meals.
2. Island counters are only helpful if you have a much bigger kitchen as it serves as a break between two platforms which are far apart. In your case, it will form a hinderance.
3. The breakfast counter will also provide a visual break and designate the kitchen space from other areas.
I am attaching the plan marking the idea and location of breakfast counter.
Hi Ramyashree, the layout you have shown is of same size , island kitchen is pretty possible over there.
Pls send layout (plan ) for this kitchen too. In image it is not very clear.
Hi Ramyashree,A wider 2 feet overhang breakfast countertop would give ample working space and storage cabinets below. You could move the counter between the dining and kitchen window so there is
If the utility door is moved towards the sink end,
