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.
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.
Don't be afraid to use black in narrow or smaller spaces – as long as you have the lighting to balance the darkness. It’ll become a comfy, cozy spot to be in when done right. Your black kitchen can be as traditional in feel and in style as a simple, white kitchen can be. Just look how beautiful those classic cabinets are in black. One may not think that wood works with black but, in fact, it can cozy up a modern, chic design in an instant making it a more welcoming space – like you see here with the floor. There's something really freeing about this kitchen, so make sure when deciding on your kitchen renovation you realize that darker, deeper tones can have that same light and breathy air about it. We‘re loving this edgy and artistic black kitchen. Filled with subway tile, industrial pendant lighting and black cabinetry, you‘ll wow yourself with its design everyday when you walk in for breakfast.You should really think about what you put on your shelves, especially with some open cabinets, because it can make or break the theme and vision you’re going for. The pops of color here play well with the black scheme. Just because it’s a kitchen doesn‘t mean you can’t be completely unique and innovative with your styling ideas. This space combines so many different themes of interior design: classic, contemporary and rustic too. Here‘s a kitchen that shows how dramatic and rich an all-black kitchen can truly be. It will never go out of style – black never does – and neither will the sophisticated lines of the space. Black can be the perfect foundation to a fashion-forward space full of style and modern design. We love how bachelor-pad like this space feels but also how upscale and beautiful it is too.
