Capping off the end of the peninsula with open shelves provides a practical and pretty alternative to an ordinary decorative panel. Stowing cookbooks here makes them easily accessible and more likely to be used.

This isn't a real link to anywhere in particular, but the idea is still a good one. To add an extra special touch to your bar/counter area, consider investing in a foot rest bar. Could be purchased from an iron work company (but I'm sure a few of you creative DIYourselfers out there could come up with a way to do this on your own).

For efficient flow, leave between 42 and 48 inches (106.68 cm and 121.92 cm) of open area around islands. Typically, for an island to be a useful addition, your kitchen should be at least 13 feet wide (3.96 meters), and the island should be a minimum of three feet by five feet (91.4 cm by 152.4 cm). The layout of your kitchen is important when considering an island. Single wall and L-shaped kitchens usually work well with islands.

Wood slab counter top. Beautifully executed wood slab, great, friendly finish for the user. I like the black and chrome chairs, they coordinate well with the stainless steel in the kitchen. The wood slab almost gives you the feeling you are sitting at a table, rather than a counter. Well done.
