Kitchen / June 22, 2018 /
Even in larger kitchens, sometimes it is hard to get as much counter space as you want. An island can help create an extra landing space for hot dishes, extra prep space, or even a spot to do your baking. It can also play into the visual or aesthetic portion of the design if you choose to make that countertop a contrasting or accent color.
An alternative to a full island is a peninsula which has two usable sides of countertop. This could take the form of a working side and a breakfast bar, or two working sides. A peninsula can add the extra space you desire without disrupting the work flow of the kitchen. When it comes to designing a kitchen, there are many possibilities for adding functionality and style to the design.
