Custom Peninsula Design.
Different than a freestanding island a kitchen peninsula offers three sides of workspace, with one end attached to a wall or perimeter space, often forming an ‘L shape.’ Peninsula layouts provide ample space and storage for a kitchen, and especially serve as an alternative option to an island for smaller-sized kitchens.
A peninsula will help you improve your L-shaped kitchen space and acts as a natural border between your kitchen and dining areas. A peninsula can act as a friendly barrier when trying to prepare meals and entertaining.
The depth of the peninsula creates deep storage space below where you can add drawers, cabinets, shelving or appliances such as a beverage fridge or microwave for easy reach.
A seating area can also be added to the outer edge of the peninsula, away from the work zone for a casual place to sit around which would accommodate your family and quests.
