    Default I need island design help!

    I need help creating a kitchen island. I would like to create a 78" x 48" island (should it be called a peninsula if the shorter side is going to be flush with the wall?) The problem is that there is a radiator against the wall (on the same wall that the island would attach to) which prevents me from making the island more than 36" deep. (or wide) I was considering leaving an 8" opening in the island top to accommodate the radiator which would be perpendicular to the island (the countertop would be a fat L shape if I did this) and using counter "legs" to support the two ends of the countertop. Would this look ridiculous or be impractical for some reason? I can send you a diagram if you are having trouble following my description. I need help!! Any advice would be appreciated.

    Personally I think 48" wide is to wide to be practical.

    Never mind, read your post too quickly.
