The Peninsular Kitchen

The Peninsular Kitchen

This beautiful kitchen is an open plan with a peninsular unit. The panels are made of beech and finished in matt lacquer, and the worktops are made of imperial white quartz except the breakfast bar which is made of solid beech. Probably the most striking aspect of the kitchen is the glass shelving behind the glass panelled doors on the outside of the peninsular unit.

By placing wine glasses, ware and ornaments on these shelves a nice sense of flow between kitchen area and dining / living room area is achieved. The kitchen is well lit and this, combined with some carefully chosen and placed plants, gives it a healthy complexion.

The first thing you notice when you see this kitchen is its peninsular design. Some peninsular kitchens have a small but effective peninsula but, as we can see, our kitchen’s peninsula constitutes a substantial part of the kitchen.

So let’s take a closer look at peninsular kitchens, without losing sight of our kitchen.

As the peninsula is surrounded on three sides by floor space, it provides lots of room. This is why the peninsular is especially suited to small kitchens where space is an issue. The peninsular also provides more work space and storage space.

One of the most important functions of a peninsular kitchen is to help define the kitchen area. To set it off from the living / dining room. For whoever rules the kitchen, this establishing of territory is important. However, as we have already noted, in our kitchen there is also harmony and flow between the areas.

Because of its versatility, the peninsular kitchen is a kind of ‘Jack of all trades’ of kitchens. Peninsulas first became popular when open floor kitchens began to replace the traditional kitchen. Today, alongside the island design, they are still a very popular choice for their versatility and efficiency. One of the best aspects of the peninsula is simply the floor space gained. In our kitchen the peninsula allows you to talk with family or friends while you are preparing a meal or doing the washing up. Also, if you have kids, this kind of peninsula allows you to keep an eye on them as you work, or maybe just keep an eye on the TV!
