More countertop area: Even when compared to a kitchen island, a peninsula provides more counter
space. An island requires a route all the way around it, but a peninsula may sit in the same spot and
connect to a wall, turning a tiny section of walkway into a workbench space. A peninsula might
incorporate additional cupboards and drawers for additional storage. Appropriate for tiny kitchens:
Unlike an island, which must have a specific size to be useful, peninsulas can be short or long, and
therefore fit into both small and large kitchens.
