Many homeowners who opt for a one-walled open kitchen design compensate for the lack of storage in clever ways. A large kitchen island is a familiar sight in a one-walled open kitchen, and islands can be a great storage option, as well as offering several other important uses, from seating and dining to food preparation. Some open kitchen designs even feature islands with sinks, to maintain the classic work triangle between the sink, refrigerator and stove. When it comes to storage, islands in a one-walled open kitchen may feature sets of pull-out drawers, cabinets, and even appliances or convenient features like a lazy Susan or pull-out garbage can. If a one-walled open kitchen design isn‘t in the cards for you and an L-shaped or other design is planned, you can still easily feature a kitchen island if the space allows.
When it comes to the appearance of your kitchen peninsula, you‘ll only be limited by your imagination and your budget. Most homeowners choose to mirror the overall design of the kitchen, particularly since it‘s usually connected directly to another area of the kitchen, with a single countertop marrying the entire design in an L- or U-shaped kitchen with a peninsula. That said, a peninsula can provide an opportunity to add some visual interest to your kitchen design via unique countertop decorations like glass or porcelain storage containers or bowls of elegantly displayed fruits and vegetables.
Whether you‘re looking to create extra space in your home or just want a floor plan for your kitchen and dining area that welcomes guests and family members alike, you may want to explore options for an open kitchen design. Open kitchens can be great spaces for entertaining, but they also have benefits when it comes to functionality, storage and efficiency.
From stripes to checkered floors, there are many ways to update a space with paint and create a room that you, your family and even guests will never want to leave. Stripes—Stripes are all the rage these days, and taking the time to add some to your kitchen walls will immediately make it look ultra cool. Painting stripes can be a long and tedious process, but the results are well worth the extra effort.
