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.
Having some kind of spice rack is a must because the small jars get lost and tip over. One convenient, organized rack is easily accessible and helps me keep track of what spices I have. Because I have kids, I do buy things in bulk. I left the very top of the shelf empty for my bulk storage section. These are items I do not access everyday. The nice thing about having a basket is that I can easily pull it down when I do need the food. Pulling one thing off of a high shelf can cause a avalanche of food items if you're not careful. I love how it looks. I love how it functions. I love the organization.
