This kitchen peninsula has an irregular form and includes shelving storage for boxes, jars and other things. It can be used as a bar if desired but ultimately it remains a multifunctional feature. A kitchen peninsula adds counter space but this doesn’t mean its top has to match the counters. In fact, it could be interesting to play with contrasts and various combinations of materials, textures, finishes and colors. Just like islands, peninsulas can have a variety of different designs, forms and sizes, depending on the space available and the aesthetic preferences. A small peninsula such as this one can be a really great addition to a compact kitchen. If your kitchen has a large support beam or column and you don't really know what to do with it, use it as a support for a peninsula. It can be small and you can use it as a breakfast table in the morning.
In a mixed design you could have black kitchen cabinets and white open shelves for visual contrast or grey kitchen cabinets with matching shelves for a cohesive look. On the same note, two-tone kitchen cabinets can be an interesting option if you want to play with colors and to create a dynamic decor. Another way to add color to the kitchen is by filling the open shelves with all sorts of items just as cups, containers, dishes and other things that contrast with the wall behind them. But color is just one of the things you can focus on when furnishing and decorating a room. Space-efficiency is another wonderful advantage that’s linked to open kitchen shelving. Let‘s say your kitchen has an odd layout or you have some empty corners to fill. Corner kitchen cabinets are one option but if you feel like they take up too much space or they make the room feel small, use open shelves instead. They can fit in all sorts of odd spaces such as nooks between the door and the wall or above the doors and windows.

The great variation is due to variations in the rarity of the stone, its thickness, origin, and any special features.

Because every piece of granite is unique, you will want to visit your stone supplier and choose your own slab. Depending on the size of your countertop and how many separate areas you have, you may need more than one slab. It's best not to rely on samples when it comes to making your granite choice. You can do some preliminary sampling to get an idea of what you might like and what will match your color scheme best, but make sure to choose the exact slab yourself. This is especially true if you are looking for a particular shade or patterning. Because no two slabs are alike, you might end up with something that looks completely different from the sample.
