Breadandsuch: Thanks for the dimensions. That helps me visualize my space in a way that a layout won't.

RE: Peninsula

I have a collection of open u-shape kitchen photos.

Could post a number of them if you want.

RE: Peninsula

We removed the raised bar on our old peninsula and added 12 inch deep cabinets and display shelves. We haven't added the hardware yet.

RE: Peninsula

Here's ours (it looks kind of distorted, it is the architect's photo and I think he used some wide angle lens to try to make our kitchen look bigger than it is. J )

RE: Peninsula

We love ours, completely opens the space up and will make serving at holidays, parties so easy as we do buffet usually. We are waiting on stools still.

RE: Peninsula

We made a bit of a half circle to sneak a bit more seating space. Originally, my counters ended 24" to the right of the peninsula.

I need all the help I can get trying to plan the kitchen in my new build....I like too many of them that I am having hard time picking just one style...one day I like white, the next I like cherry stained....almost wish some kitchen fairy would just decide for me......any takers?

I love my peninsual, but with more space I would prefer an island with seating on both sides.

RE: Peninsula

I am pretty noob at this. How do you get the peninsula to have drawers and cabinets on both sides? Particularly the peninsula with a sink. Do you buy two cabinets and put them back to back?

RE: Peninsula

RE: Peninsula

Lilymila, Yes, you would have to put cabinets back to back to have drawers and cabinets on both sides. In my case, I put a cabinet facing out in the dead space in the corner.

RE: Peninsula

Great topic. Our kitchen is almost done except for repainting "again" but that's another story. Deciding on a back cover on the peninsula has been whipping our butts. It's 6 feet long and we intend on using 2 bar stools.

I've been kicking around the idea of using a sheet of aluminum painted with a high quality automotive paint, maybe a silver.

So, has anybody got creative and done something a bit non-conventional?

Some great pictures posted and Id love to see more.
