Island or Peninsula

Islands and peninsulas increase efficiency in the kitchen and also let people prepare, cook, and clean up while looking out into the room, rather than against the wall. They are used for meal preparation, a snack bar and as a buffet for setting out self service meals during a party.

An island commonly used in U-shaped and L-shaped kitchens, shortens the distance between work centers and direct traffic.  It is recommended to leave at least 42 inches of walk space on all sides of the island.

In a peninsula, one short end attaches at a right angle to a wall or a bank of cabinets unlike an island, It does not require as much floor place as an island, but if floor space is available in your kitchen and you run out of wall space.
