A metaphorical term for an extended kitchen counter space connected to the wall on only one side.

Things you need to know

Peninsulas are popular in C-shaped kitchens and in kitchen layouts where space constraints make a sizable island countertop space impractical.

Cost Considerations

Peninsulas typically run anywhere between $600 and $2,500, depending on their size and the materials used. Granite countertops tend to be the most expensive, averaging between $50 to $250 per square foot (including installation). On the low end, tile counters can cost as little as $10 per square foot.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
