A peninsula kitchen layout is like a parallel kitchen without one wall; the free standing workspace or the peninsula extends from a side wall or cabinet with access from three sides. Unlike a kitchen island, a kitchen peninsula is connected to the main kitchen on one side. The peninsula could be an extra workstation with cabinets or a table top for quick meals. It can also be used as an area to wash with a sink, or as a cooking area with a stovetop. Ideal for homes with small kitchen space; a peninsula can have all the resourcefulness of an island worktop, but with less floor space.
