Smallest island bench that’s feasible

We are planning a kitchen reno and don’t have a lot of space to work with. I’d love to do an island bench but don’t have a lot of space. What do you think is the smallest that is feasible? It will just be bench space – no sink. I think the most space we could use would be 2m by about 0.8 or 0.9m. What do you think? Is that big enough?

Re: Smallest island bench that’s feasible

Hard to know without seeing the entire floorplan @_Marley_, but I would certainly encourage you to try to get an island bench in the design. You will find in most kitchens and indeed houses that they become a hive of activity and the focus of much of the house. A place to not only prepare food but also to eat and socialise. Also, you can never get enough bench space!
