1. Peninsula Kitchen
The peninsula layout is essentially a kitchen with an elongated countertop that serves as an attached island. This longer side (or peninsula) separates the kitchen workspace from the rest of the room, offers extra space for culinary prep, and is commonly used as a seating area for entertaining or snacking. Because this kitchen layout has two functions, you’ll want to make sure that its lighting is equally as diverse. Mini pendants are an excellent choice for brightening the peninsula without overpowering it. Hang a group of matching pendants together for ample lighting, or mix and match different designs for a more creative approach. For the kitchen side, go for task lighting like recessed lights and under-cabinet illumination.
