One of the more striking benefits of a kitchen peninsula is its utility. Just like a kitchen island, a peninsula has many potential uses. It can be configured to add considerable extra storage via a system of cabinets, drawers and racks that can be used to keep cookware and other accessories organized. Peninsula countertops can add a great deal of surface area to your kitchen design, and they can be used for food preparation and dining. Peninsula countertops can also do double duty in terms of storage and decoration, providing a convenient location for containers and other storage elements while allowing you to keep your favorites on prominent display.
Lighting is a particularly key feature of open kitchen designs, since open designs tend to incorporate more space than their closed-in counterparts. Finding the right balance of coverage, style and function can be a challenge, but if you focus on the three basic lighting types—main, decorative and task—you should have no problem lighting your open kitchen design. For main lighting, consider a track that encircles the room or runs through the middle of the entire design. A chandelier or large handing pendant can light the dining room space. Task lighting is a great idea for sink, cooking and food prep areas. And finally, decorative lighting can be a great feature for the tops and bottoms of cabinets.
One of the first things you‘ll need to consider for your open kitchen is how many walls you want to keep standing in the space. If any of the walls are load-bearing, your decision may be made for you (you should probably keep those). But if you‘re relatively free and clear to take down any internal walls, you‘ll have an opportunity to keep as few as just one. Single-wall open kitchens are not uncommon, and they create the most open feel of any design—but you‘ll sacrifice a bit of storage to implement a one-walled open kitchen design.
