Islands, Islands, Islands and Peninsulas?
Islands are a great way to use space in a kitchen while creating extra work space. Peninsulas serve the same function. What you choose to go with is not only a matter of what your kitchen can support space wise but personal preference as well. Peninsulas are a great way to separate the kitchen from another room. Islands, on the other hand, are typically used to define work space in a kitchen from dining areas.
