Opions wanted Kitchen Peninsula end cap

Posted by pinkhouse2011 (My Page) on

I need input on how to finish off the end of my peninsula.

The peninsula is 73" Long I have a 24"wide by 12" deep cabinet at the far left. There is 48" for two stools.

Should I run an end cap a full 36"deep along the end or leave it open by using only a 24" end panel ?

attached is an image with a 36" end panel.

I think I like the end panel b/c of the cabinet on the other end. If there was no cabinet, I'd say just have the overhang. What about a pretty leg? Would it smoosh the seating area too much?

I am worried about smooshed seating with the full end panel.

Attached is a picture of NessaB kitchen with just an over hang.

I went through a similar issue with my island overhang. I'll link the thread I started asking for opinions below so you can see some examples and discussion. I ended up forgoing an end panel or leg so as not to cramp the stool space. 48" for two stools can be a little tight. I ended up with 53", taking into account the side overhang, for my two stools, and I'm very glad I didn't close in the area, especially with two young kids shoving the stools around getting in and out.

I'm not sure I have an opinion but I will have a similar decision to make. I just saw this pic on Houzz thought Id share it so you can visualize the end option...

Breezy, I just read through your old thread....so, have your kids ever bumped heads? Are you glad you went naked?

If the counter (stone) is left "naked" how would it be supported? The overhang would be aprox. 13x48

I'd be worried about the smoosh factor also and would do it like NessaB's
