Use a peninsula to close off a kitchen from the rest of the open floor plan or to give it more privacy without separating it from other spaces using walls. Also, don't forget the task lighting. Give your kitchen peninsula any shape and size you want. It should be customized to perfectly complement the kitchen so don`t make it too big, too small, to tall or too narrow. It needs to be just right for the purposes you have in mind. This kitchen peninsula is pretty interesting in the sense that it`s mostly white except for the side that faces the social area. Also, it has a raised bar surface which allows it to be multifunctional. Usually, the peninsula is added in the continuation of the kitchen counter to form either an L-shaped or a U-shaped layout. To make it look more like an island, attach it to a wall that has no cabinets or shelves attached to it. A peninsula is more space-efficient and sometimes even more practical than an island. They both have similar functions and their designs are quite alike in most cases. Of course, customization is always a good option.
Always on the look-out for good kitchen storage ideas, we found this drawer design from Crown Point Cabinetry. Not only does it feature angled spice storage with ample-sized containers, it has a divided section and both parts are illuminated with LED lights that come on when you open it. No more digging in dark drawers or straining to read spice jar labels. One of the most used essentials in the kitchen is the refrigerator, and new innovations allow for better food preservation as well as convenience and storage capacity. French doors, such as these on Miele's refrigerator, are very popular because they allow cooks to store larger platters and pans of food. Opening both doors also allows for a full view of what's inside. Thermador`s newest innovation is special tilting bins for delicate items. Adjustable installed in the door, these bins remove for easy cleaning.
Kitchen cabinets with glass doors are pretty tricky. You either love them or you hate them. It‘s easy to dismiss the option based on nothing but an association with a style that you don’t like but don‘t generalize the look. Glass kitchen cabinet doors are more versatile and adaptable than you think plus they also have a practical side. They‘re a pretty great compromise between solid cabinetry and open shelving, allowing you to organize everything neatly inside a unit and to have it put on display at the same time. There are, of course, lots of variations based on the type of glass you choose for your cabinets.
This is exactly what I needed to kick start my quest to organize my home! Taking the time to set up functional storage space, labeling things, and making sure everything fits in the best way possible — these are all simple steps you can take to organize your home and ease the stress. We all have busy lives, so having items be easily accessible and ready when you need them is just one small step you can take in simplifying your life.
The island is probably the most common accent piece for a kitchen but it‘s usually something that only large kitchens can accommodate. Islands go well with open floor plans so if you have the room then should definitely take advantage of it. However, the island is not the only option. A kitchen peninsula is an interesting and practical alternative for smaller spaces or for certain types of layouts. A kitchen peninsula can sometimes prove to be a better option than an island. It provides circulation on three sides while one side is usually attached to a wall and this can offer some nice advantages. A peninsula can be an extension for your kitchen cabinetry or even for a kitchen island. It can be lower than the counter and it can be used as a comfortable dining table or a breakfast nook.
