I feel like I've seen a ton of them lately. Have there been lots of them all along, and I'm just now noticing them, or has there been an uptick?
If there's in fact been an uptick, I'm also curious about why...
We just demolished our angled penisula! I really hated it because it caused us to have an island shape that was not working at all. Now that it is gone the crew has built me a nice big rectangular island with drawers; something I couldn't have with the funky shaped island.
And there is more room for our breakfast table because the peninsula is not jutting out into that part of the room.
If they are getting more popular, then I guess I am just not with the times!
Honestly, I saw them a lot about 6 years ago in manufactured homes. I was helping my mom look for a downsized home option...and those peninsulas were very popular. I was surprised to see them back, too. Lots of seating, but not much storage. Maybe they're an answer to the 'stadium' seating problem, some long islands create?
My 1994 house was built with a long one. It actually made sense because the breakfast room has a bay that formed a 90degree angle with the peninsula. When we remodeled we shortened it but kept the angle.
