My husband moved our too small island against the wall to create a peninsula that allows for more room and better traffic flow through the kitchen, although we did lose the broom closet in the deal. Before and After!

I like what you did. Looks like you, like us, had an island that was just always in the way. I was always backing into it. Now, with the peninsula, I have more counter space and a cart on wheels topped with bamboo cutting board, it can she anywhere for chopping or over to an outlet for the crock pot.

Looks like you had to move the range hood too! I thought I had it bad when I had to repaint ours to match the new colors! Beautiful view from the dining room, which you can see from your new peninsula.

Love all these little peninsulas! Husband took out a pantry to build this tiny, hardworking addition. And, surprise.....

guests so often want to gather round that we had to purchase 2 folding stools to accommodate!
