Kitchen peninsulas really don’t get enough credit because they can truly transform your whole area. While kitchen islands are great, sometimes you don’t have room for one. That’s typically where we see kitchen peninsulas come in.
Some kitchen peninsulas are part of an L-shaped kitchen or one that wraps around three sides. Often, they separate the kitchen from the dining room area. They give you the same functionality as a center island – more counter room, extra dining space, and some even feature the range.
Below, we’ve gathered more than 30 kitchens with peninsulas for you to browse through. You will see that they work with kitchens of all sizes, sometimes together with center islands and sometimes not. Go ahead and figure out what will work best for your kitchen space.
