Well, that just means that the island shouldn't be WITHIN the triangle. If you had an island off the side to sit things on, etc, that's not such a big deal. (Waste of space, maybe, but not a hassle.)

1poorlady wants one in our new kitchen for the added storage underneath, and because she wants a "vegetable" sink in addition to the main sink. Our kitchen is basically going to be square (with openings to get in and out, of course), and the small island will be dead-center in the work triangle (all three legs of the triangle pass right next to it). In theory it should also provide a place to put stuff that one is pulling out of the fridge or the oven (easily accessible from both).
