The functionality of a kitchen peninsula doesn‘t have to be limited to storage, cooking prep and bar-style dining, however. Many homeowners choose to make their kitchen peninsula a fully functioning feature of their kitchen design by adding cooking or cleaning functionality. Adding a stove, refrigerator or sink to a kitchen peninsula can create a more efficient "work triangle" in your kitchen, making cooking, cleaning and food preparation easier and more enjoyable.
In addition to framed art, some homeowners experiment with wall hangings in their kitchen design. Oversized or antique utensils, tapestries with food or cooking designs, or even cookware painted in bold colors can be great choices.
Chalkboard Wall—Many families keep a chalkboard in their kitchen for reminders and a running grocery list. But if you‘re always wishing you had more space to write on, it might be time for a chalkboard wall. Keep things classic and paint a black one if your kitchen has a lot of white or neutral colors, or add a pop of color in chalkboard paint on an accent wall in a white or neutral kitchen.
First, eliminate the extras. Exchange pendant lights for recessed lighting and swap space-hogging appliances for models that can be tucked in drawers. Secondly, make a place for everything and put everything in its place. To this end, consider a pullout pantry or extend a windowsill for an extra storage perch. So that your tiny kitchen layout works double-duty, install a retractable eat-in peninsula that doubles as counter/dining space. Opt for chairs that also serve as seating in the living room. Every culinary headquarters needs a space for dining. Whether you have an island or a peninsula, utilize this surface in your small kitchen design for cooking prep, dining and as a buffet for entertaining. Bringing in an island on casters provides a mobile dining space when you need, it and it can be rolled away when you don‘t. Another idea for designing an eat-in space in your small kitchen is to install a built-in booth to accommodate the tight space. With a thoughtful design, you can also use the space underneath the seating for extra kitchen storage.
