In order to determine how many stools will fit at your kitchen island, home experts recommend you allow 28 to 30 inches for each seating space, which means you can divide the length of your island´s counter by 30 to to figure out how many stools will comfortably fit. (For example, if your island has a 90-inch countertop, you can comfortably fit 3 stools along one side.) You might be tempted to add an extra seat, but keep in mind that you don´t want to pack in too many stools and block walkways or make your kitchen feel cramped.
Extra storage space is another feature that is often included with pre-designed stationary islands. A set of drawers, small side shelves and two to four cabinets are typical for these types of islands. Some stationary islands also include unique features, like a drop leaf breakfast bar or knife block that attaches to the end of the island.
Other rustic kitchen island designs include wood with an antique or weathered look that adds a farm-to-table feel to the room. Freestanding kitchen islands with seating can be made from simple dark wood materials with stools placed on either side for family-style eating; this style works especially well in a rustic kitchen design.
