Should You Get an Island or Peninsula for Your Kitchen?, Red Bank, New Jersey

If you’re planning to remodel your kitchen, there are a lot of decisions to make, including how to lay out your custom countertops. Also, you may need to choose between a kitchen island or peninsula. Learning about the positives and negatives of each option will help you make the right decision for your space. Here’s what you need to know.

Kitchen Island

A kitchen island is a free-standing structure with no borders. It comes with a lot of storage and counter space for prepping and cooking food. Whether you’re preparing a big dinner for guests or lunch for your kids, you’ll have plenty of room to work. Islands are also eye-catching centerpieces for kitchens that will give guests a focal point to focus on.

Islands have to have a few feet of space around the perimeter, so they’re ideal for larger kitchens with ample room. 

Kitchen Peninsula

custom countertopsA kitchen peninsula is connected to a wall on one side and open on three of the sides. Although peninsulas aren’t as popular as islands, they’re versatile and can help the entire room come together. Peninsulas also offer more seating room. In addition to putting chairs along the length of a peninsula, you can place a chair on the end.

Because peninsulas use up less floor space, they’re better suited for kitchens with limited space. They’re also easier to install without remodeling the entire room, as they can be easily added to existing counters.
