Kitchen Island vs Peninsula


When remodeling your home, what’s the difference between a kitchen island vs peninsula? Both options offer more storage and entertaining space, but what’s right for your kitchen design?


Kitchen Island vs Peninsula

As Max T. Value explains, “An island is a free-standing unit with space to walk around it. A peninsula is attached to a wall, but uses less floor space overall.” Choose the one which will complement your kitchen style. Do you entertain friends often? A great idea would be to include a wine rack. Love to cook and have all the latest gadgets or cookware? Find a style with plenty of storage space.

And best of all, try a contrasting finish or color for visual interest in the kitchen.
