Kitchen Peninsula Ideas
Discover how adding a kitchen peninsula can create more room for food preparation or entertaining guests.
Adding a kitchen peninsula to your layout can be useful for a kitchen remodel that requires removing a wall or adding a casual dining area with pub-style seating.
A kitchen peninsula is basically an island that has been connected to a wall. This layout can convert an L-shaped kitchen into a horseshoe or add an additional food preparation or seating area to a U-shaped kitchen design. Peninsulas are ideal in kitchens that require the functionality of an island but cannot afford to lose floor space.
If you are completely remodeling your small kitchen space in order to create a more open floor plan, then you may want to consider a peninsula. For example, imagine if your kitchen is closed in with three walls and you are planning on removing one wall to create more freedom in the kitchen. You may want to consider implementing a peninsula in the place of that wall to add counter space and perhaps provide seating for guests or feeding the kids an after-school snack.
The peninsula can also be a useful addition for providing additional storage or shelving underneath the top surface.
