Need help with potential peninsula for kitchen
April 16, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are building our new home, and after pouring over the floor plan and looking at models of the same kitchen we are not certain there is enough room for the intended island....if we want to manoeuvre with ease around the kitchen. We think a peninsula jutting out from the wall near the patio door would work better. We are not sure how far out the peninsula should go so that we don't feel like we are boxing in the kitchen. Our intention is to have a couple bar stools placed on the side looking into the kitchen, but that would be the only requirement for length. Any ideas on how long it should be? Other suggestions? I've attached pics of the floor plan, and examples of current models of our kitchen. The last photo is what we are considering doing. Thanks :)
