There’re basic kitchen lay outs people commonly apply. Worktop on a wall side is the most common. It’s very popular for many people apply this style because the design can fit in any room size, from the very limited space, to large kitchen area. Then, there’s also a combination of worktop and kitchen island in its middle area. It’s commonly designed for kitchen with medium to large sized area. One last lay out that’s also popular to apply is the one with kitchen peninsula.
Well, basically it’s almost the same as kitchen island in the shape, but it’s different in the placement. While kitchen island is placed standing freely, mostly in the middle part of the kitchen area, a peninsula is just like ‘peninsula’ in your Geography class. It has a side that’s connected to the main area; that’s kitchen. So, one of the kitchen peninsula sides is attached to the kitchen wall or connected to the main worktop. For nowadays, it serves better compared to kitchen island because peninsula takes less space. That’s why it can fit any kitchen size. Also, it has some options to choose, from L-shape, U-shape, to standard modular style that’s placed parallel to the main counter.
Well, about the function, peninsula is mainly similar to kitchen island. You can apply it as additional worktop to do such meal preparation there. Also, you can apply the peninsula as bar or dining table where you serve drinks or meals. By adding some chairs facing the kitchen area, you’re just setting up a dining area altogether with kitchen. This also means that you visually create a room separation, especially for open kitchen, between the kitchen area and the other room that’s directly connected to the kitchen. Besides, you can also use the peninsula as storage. You can set some built-in drawers underneath to store some kitchen wares, or even food inside. In short, kitchen peninsula is really helpful for you just like traditional kitchen island, but it benefits you more in saving the space and separating open kitchen to another room next to.
