The original oak kitchen was no longer working for my clients, storage was a concern as well as the layout. I totally remodeled the space, giving a built in pantry and bigger island. I used walnut for all the cabinets and Corian counters using one color on the peninsula and another on the island. I curved the corners of the island as well as the end runs, this gave additional shallow storage at the oven side for a sweeper, charging station and keys. I used a dropped height peninsula for mixing salads etc, i find the usual 36-inch height is a little uncomfortable for mixing in a bowl. At the dining side of the short peninsula i incorporated storage for napkins and placemats whilst the cupboard above it houses all the BBQ tools as it is next to the sliding doors going out to the deck.
