A renovation gives you the opportunity to improve functionality in your kitchen space. One way to make this possible is by adding more counter space. You are free to choose either a kitchen island or a peninsula, but which option is actually the best for your needs?
- Design: A kitchen island is exactly that – a freestanding unit placed in the middle of the kitchen. A peninsula generally looks and works the same way, except it’s connected to a wall on one side. Both options help separate the kitchen with the next room without the need of a dividing wall.
- Customization: You can customize your kitchen island in two ways. You either match it with the overall kitchen style (same cabinets, sink or countertop) or use it to create a unique contrast using a different design or color scheme. A peninsula is somewhat limited since it’s usually designed to blend in with the existing cabinet space for a more consistent look.
- Space: Adding a kitchen island is not an issue if you have sufficient space for it. But if your kitchen is on the smaller side, you might want to consider a peninsula instead. A peninsula can provide you the additional countertop space and storage you need while still maintaining a smooth and accessible layout in your kitchen.
- Personal Preference: If you’re the type who entertains often or have a family who usually hangs out in the kitchen throughout the day, you should consider a kitchen island for the additional seating and dining space it provides. But if you usually work alone in the kitchen and need a sort of barrier to shield you from foot traffic, a peninsula may be more to your liking.
