2 Base Cabinets in Peninsula - wall between them or not? drawers?

Posted by newhomeowner2011a (My Page) on

Are going to put in two base cabinets back to back - they are going to be custom so I was asked if we wanted them to go all the way through so we could store larger platters or if we wanted a wall between the two. Thoughts?

And would you have drawers, regular cabinet doors with shelves or a combo on the set that faces the kitchen? The other side will be regular doors as we will have bar stools up against them. I think the answer might have a lot to do with how you answer the above question but maybe it wouldn't matter?

We have a VERY small kitchen so this peninsula with base cabinets (going where they are tearing out a wall) is key to meeting our storage needs (not sure if that helps with how you'd answer the above but thought I'd throw that out there just in case) ;)

Thanks for your insight!

It really depends on what you have to store in there? Is it your prep area or just storage/eating or what? What were your plans for the space before you were asked this question by the cabinet maker?
