Kitchen / June 13, 2018 /
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.
When it comes to flooring, consider slip resistance, ease of maintenance and porosity. Stone floors, which are somewhat porous, for instance, may need periodic resealing. If so, ask how often, and think about whether you want to deal with that process. Hardwood floors are beautiful, but be aware that they wear out faster by the fridge, stove and sink than other areas. Hard, natural stone works wonderfully, and the earthy look and feel of it is very popular.
