12" or 15" peninsula overhang?
I am finalizing kitchen design this week. Still a few changes before final, final version, but one thing I am trying to decide is whether to do a 12" or a 15" overhang on our angled peninsula. The builder had it as a breakfast bar with only an 8" overhang, but we made it flush with the counter top since the kitchen configuration doesn't work for an island and the end of peninsula to the right of the sink is the planned prep area (can watch kids at the same time, a plus!). I've already extended it to be 12", but I am unsure whether it should be more.
We will have seating there, so I want it to be comfortable, but I don't want it to look too large or look weird w/ all the angles. There is 50" for the walkway between the end of the peninsula and the stove wall (counting 1 1/2" countertop overhang on both sides), and there is 7 ft. between the peninsula side w/the overhang and the kitchen table, not including chair space for either peninsula or table. That 7 ft. is also a walk-through to the family room.
