Kitchen island Designs for Small Spaces
Consider a kitchen peninsula. Finally, there is the option of a kitchen peninsula rather than a full island. The word peninsula comes from the Latin for “almost an island, ” and a kitchen peninsula shares most of the same appealing qualities as a kitchen island, but is fixed at one end. Peninsulas are a practical and functional choice for small kitchens because, with one end fixed to a wall, they take up less floor space.
A peninsula also doesn’t require the same clearance as an island. For example, an average-size island, about 4 by 8 feet (1, 200 by 2, 400 millimeters), would need a clearance zone of about 3 feet (1, 000 millimeters). But a peninsula in the same space would, of course, require that extra yard (meter) only on three sides — giving you back valuable space.
