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!
