Peninsula Kitchens provide creative solutions to add extra elements to the kitchen, or to act as room separators in 'open plan' spaces. It is a modular kitchen system which allows for versatile personalisation for both aesthetic or functional use.
Options Worth Considering
Peninsula as Table which is part of the whole design of the kitchen. It can be connected to the cabinetry as a compact solution for a dining area
Peninsula as Work Top and Storage which sits on top of cabinets which can come complete with regular drawers and doors, or open shelving. This option will provide you with additional storage as well as extra space to prepare meals
Peninsula as Eating Area, as an extra element to the kitchen which still allows the food to be managed within one area. Options include a surface which can be designed to be bar height with stools, or as an additional table.
