Part of working with a tiny space is helping it to look and feel larger than it really is, as well as make it more comfortable. To this end, consider using only lower cabinets in your kitchen and replacing the uppers with shelves. This accomplishes two things; it makes the kitchen seem larger than it is by opening things up, and it gives you more versatility in how you store things. Cabinets take up more room than they give you. They also have a set number of shelves inside, as well as spacing between them. By putting up your own shelves you can make better use of the whole space, getting more versatility and storage at once.
A peninsula basically serves the same purpose as the kitchen island, but it’s fixed to at least 1 wall, with access to 3 sides rather than 4 like an island. A peninsula is actually seen as an extension of the rest of the kitchen, unlike islands which are a distinct unit separate from the other worktops and cupboards. Due to its’ structure, a peninsula is a great choice for kitchens with a smaller footprint, as it’s more space efficient. It’s much easier to incorporate, and homeowners can choose just how small or big they want it to be.
