A kitchen peninsula is a way of describing a cabinet or series of cabinets that are only connected to the main body of the kitchen on one side. A peninsula is basically a connected island, converting an L-shaped kitchen layout into a horseshoe or G-shape. The peninsula is a highly valuable addition to any kitchen because it gives the opportunity for increased base cabinet storage space and countertop space. The additional space can be used as an enhancement to the kitchen’s primary cooking triangle by making it a storage area for pots and pans and the counter for preparation. However, the peninsula can also be utilized as a secondary cooking area with the installation of an auxiliary cooking top. A peninsula is also a great room divider that visually opens a space by replacing the need for a full-length wall.
