I thought and thought about ordering this kitchen island and am so glad I bought it! I was worried about the width because I have a small kitchen area but it's more like around 45 -46 inches in length. And that just fit into the space perfectly! I had just redone my kitchen with white kitchen cabinets, black countertops and oiled bronzed handles. This had the oil bronzed hardware to match and the stainless top ties in with the appliances, sink, faucet! It has 2 nice big drawers that I needed for silverware and utensils! And the 2 shelves are wonderful for storage too! They look great with baskets! Everyone loves this island as much as my black granite countertop! And that says a lot!
