There is a reason why peninsula kitchen ideas are so popular. Peninsula layouts come in all kinds of designs to suit kitchens of all sizes and shapes and can be tailored to meet individual needs too, as well as all budgets. 

Whilst a kitchen island is high on many people's wish-list when it comes kitchen layout ideas, they're not always a practical solution in every kitchen — particularly those narrower than 4m. As such, a peninsula can provide an opportunity to capture some of the benefits of an island in smaller spaces.
