There are many different ways you can approach this decision, and since an island takes up a significant amount of floor space it`s worth it to take time to make every element of its design intentional. A good general rule for enclosed kitchens is to place it in the center of the room. That way it`s equally accessible from all sides and won`t be an obstacle for people walking through. That placement might not work best for all kitchens, however. A perimeter island, for example, might work better with open floor plans. Size and shape are also determined by room`s layout; Allow for at least 36-48 inches between the perimeter of the island and the surrounding cabinets so there`s enough room for people to move around.
