The peninsula & the island

The island layout is rarely found in enclosed kitchens, since the room would need to be extremely large to accommodate this shape. This type of kitchen requires more floor space because there must be sufficient room to move between the units. It is a different matter if the island or peninsula is used to separate the kitchen from the dining area, since in this case the kitchen and the island are integrated into the floor plan.

This kitchen layout is good for all those whose main considerations are communication and sociability, as it enables you to creatively and actively shape family life and the way in which you interact with friends within your own four walls, allowing cooking to become a social activity. No one is left out and everyone can muck in together.

To ensure that this layout retains its functionality, you must make sure that the distances between the different areas of the kitchen are not too great. With an island or a peninsula it is also particularly important to plan in sufficient additional storage space, as an island solution provides very few options for storage. A larder unit or a pull-out larder, for example, could be placed up against the wall to make up for the lack of storage space in the island itself.
