A peninsula is pretty similar to an island but since it‘s attached on one side to a wall it doesn’t need a solid base. It can look something like this, with just a solid top and a side panel for support. Peninsulas are more suitable for small kitchens. They can extend the counter space and offer additional storage space if needed. Other possibilities include using the peninsula as a bar or as a prep area. In a way, a peninsula is just a table attached on one side to a wall or an existing piece of furniture. Peninsulas don‘t necessarily include storage underneath their tops although that too can be an option. You can use a peninsula to define the kitchen as a separate space in the case of an open floor plan or to visually separate the cooking space from the rest of the room.
Sealed granite is not porous so it is impervious to bacteria and germs, making it a very sanitary surface because it won't serve as a breeding ground for bacteria and germs. It also resists stains and liquids. Go ahead and plop down that hot pot. Granite countertops can take the heat and will not scorch. The stone is formed through pressure and heat, so it is naturally able to hand hot items. Granite countertops don’t need a lot of maintenance, especially with regard to cleaning. Periodic sealing is required, particularly for light colored granite. Among all the home improvements you can make, granite countertops are one addition that typically improves home resale value. Any kitchen upgrade will likely boost value, but granite is a definite plus on the bottom line at sale time.
According to The Kitchen, don‘t use abrasive cleaners and sponges, Windex, acidic liquids like vinegar, lemon, lime, or anything with ammonia or bleach. Frequent use of these chemicals will dull and weaken the sealant over time. How much does granite cost? Granite has a wide price range of $45-$400 per square foot per square foot, installed. The great variation is due to variations in the rarity of the stone, its thickness, origin, and any special features. Buyers should ask plenty of questions as to whether price quotes include installation. According to the Family Handyman, an ambitious DIY enthusiast can indeed install a granite countertop. If you have straight countertops with no inside corners, or are just installing an island, it‘s actually quite an easy DIY project.
