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.
There‘s a lot to love about open shelving and the only disadvantages are either related to personal style preferences or the lack of privacy. But let’s focus on the pros first. The biggest advantage of all when you have open shelves in the kitchen is the fact that you can easily access everything that’s on them. You can see everything at a glance and quickly grab the item you need.
As we mentioned previously, details are important. So add a retro clock to the wall, an antique food scale on the counter top and a charming timer situated on the stove and oven. Even if you want to nix color but still create a retro kitchen black and white can get the job done for you, so don't worry. Use these classic neutrals as the foundation of your space. Breakfast tile countertop bars are a must as they evoke that diner style we all love but also give you the opportunity to create a place to decorate and add your own unique touches as well. Mint green is another go-to color when exploring retro kitchen style. From backsplash to the cabinets, this color works both as accent and as foundation so don’t be afraid to play around with it a bit. Add some throwback signage to the space too! Over the stove, breakfast bar or even creating a gallery wall behind the kitchen table. This too is a way to bring in your own personality.
