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.
Color Blocking—Color blocking is a popular trend in the fashion world, but it can work wonders with your decor as well. Pick neighbors on the color wheel; remember that warm hues pair with cold, and paint your upper cabinets one color and your lower cabinets the other.
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.
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.
