Peninsula with eating table (Need pics, please) Boxerpups?
So my lovely wife picks up a kitchen magazine while I'm shopping for tools and I stumble on a photo that catches my eye. It was a yellow kitchen with butcherblock topped island with attached eating table. Instead of being a raised bar, it was a like they ripped a farmhouse table lengthwise and attached half of it in place of the eating bar. I loved the look and I like the idea of not having a tall eating area because we have (many, very) small kids. However, I went to model it in my kitchen plan to replace my raised eating bar (which is on a peninsula, not an island) and I hated it. I can't figure out what I liked versus what I didn't like, it may be as simple as the fact that the photo was an island, not a peninsula... but I don't know. I kind of like the raised bar to hide prep mess, and whenever I model the peninsula as one level it just looks awkward to me, which is odd because again I like the big ol' wide islands, but wide peninsula... eh, doesn't do it for me. So I want to figure out if this would be a good option.
So, long back-story for a request: Does anyone have a setup like this? Has anyone seen photos like this? Am I going crazy obsessing over random kitchen details because my architect is stalling? Any photos or thoughts would be appreciated.
