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.
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.
Lastly, consider an artistic theme for your kitchen walls. Flora and fauna are common choices for kitchens, with fruits and vegetables or pastoral scenes populated with furred and feathered friends among the more popular choices.
If you‘re ready to purchase artwork—whether kitchen-themed or simply in a style you prefer that works well with the overall kitchen design—you‘ll have a vast array of options. Many homeowners choose kitchen wall artwork that‘s themed on cooking, baking or dining. For example, images or illustrations from vintage cookbooks can be a great kitchen wall decoration, and they can add some DIY flair to your kitchen space.
