Everyone one loves an Island and it often appears on our clients wish list but unfortunately its not always possible to include one in a design. However, all is not lost. Cleverly designed peninsulas can be practical, aesthetically pleasing and make a real statement.Beau-Port Kitchens in Hampshire love a challenge, creating the perfect peninsular presents. Gone are the days of the of the simple angular breakfast bar. Beau-Ports Kitchens peninsulas often include dining, cooking, cleaning and entertaining space.
Regardless of the size and shape of the space available the designers at Beau-Port Kitchens can design a peninsula to meet your needs. Small round peninsulas create a very inclusive area. A peninsular makes an ideal home offices, study or work space. Tucked away behind full height or mid height furniture it provides a quiet bespoke area to work. Ideal for homework or catching up on family business and accounts.
Clean lines and soft curves can be blended together for the wow factor. Peninsulas are not only a design solution for smaller kitchens they also work well in large open spaces. Being multi-functional a peninsular can create a sense of unity. Providing cooking and dinning or socialising space in an open plan kitchen which has enough space for a table for more formal dinning or larger groups. A peninsular provides valuable additional worktop space that juts out from a run of wall units, or simply from a wall. It is easily fitted with extra storage, sink and tap, hob and or oven to create a practical and ergonomic L or U-shaped layout. Variations in heights of the worktops creates interest and provides a natural break between work space and socialising, particularly useful design feature if you plan to use high bar stools as the work tops is often lower than that required for the bar stools.
A large peninsular like the one shown can be used to enclose and encapsulate the kitchen area in a large open plan space. Often seen in Australian and American homes which have larger rooms than traditional UK homes A peninsular of this design creates a kitchen without the restriction of walls. An intimate space for cooking and socialising if you add bar stool seating, within an open plan space which can be used to its full potential for larger gatherings and parties.
"We didn't want wall units or a huge dominating island, but still wanted a break between the cooking and dining area, Mark designed the kitchen area to be contained yet still open. The space just flows and is easy to manage and great for entertaining as we can be preparing food in the kitchen and still be involved with guests in the dining area."Chris Hollis
