If given the space, most homeowners would choose an island above all else. However, there are many cases where a peninsula is far superior. A peninsula is usable on 3 sides versus 4, which means it is attached to a wall, or cabinets on one side. After reading, you may be dreaming of a peninsula over a traditional island, too!
Kitchen islands are awesome, but not every home has the layout for one. Walkway and flow is extremely important in any home, including flow of a kitchen. If an island breaks up that flow, it will be an uncomfortable space.
Extra seating and counter space
Peninsulas have the option of having much more surface area than traditional islands since it only needs space around 3 sides. Having this extra space gives more prep space and a larger seating area for guests or family!
Along with having more counter space, there is also more cabinet space! Who can’t say no to extra storage?
