The kitchens are indeed astounding! You have just seen kitchens that are peninsula-shaped. This kind of layout is ideal for open floor plans and can also be efficient for small kitchens. You can easily divide your kitchen for different work sites if you use this layout. But if you there are multiple cooks in the house or you have a large space, this layout is not efficient and might even cause congestion. Try the other layouts like a U-shaped kitchen, this might fit your kitchen’s space.
