Island counter top size


Well we added an island in our kitchen using a base cabinet and drawers. The actual measurement of the cabinets (they are screwed together with board across back) is: 24 1/4" x 45 3/8".

We are getting a 36" counter top for it but my question is, what should the length be? We don't necessarily want any overhang on the length, just the 12" on the width. The counter is made to the exact measurements we want so I need to determine what that is.

By the way, the counter is a laminate counter top in a 36" island width.


Thank you!

The normal overhang on a ctop is about 1". My concern is with the 12" overhang. Is the underlayment constructed to make that overhang self supporting over time??? If not, it may need some knee brackets.

So by that reason, 47 3/8"x36 would be a good fit?

Island overhang will receive something along the lines of these. Possibly one on either side, possibly one on either side and one in the middle.
