What to put n the back side of the peninsula, facing the FR?
We will have built in table height seating so I need something that will stand up to lots of little feet kicking it. I used cover panels (ikea) in our last kitchen and they didn't hold up too well. Drywall would be worse I think. Here's the space it would be facing:
I might whitewash the bricks, haven't decided yet.
And the peninsula:
I see a lot of islands and peninsulas with beadboard but I feel like the space is too modern plus I'm not sure abt introducing another pattern/texture into the space.
