Regardless of the lack of exposed brick, the loft gets its New York flair from iron-framed windows. These extend across the entire main room, opening it up to the city views much like it is done in the New York lofts. The white walls, columns, and staircase, however, give it a classic Scandinavian look. There aren’t many decorations or design elements, so the frosty minimal atmosphere very much translates into the Nordic aesthetic.
Before we dive deep into the world of marvellous dining peninsulas, let’s take a look at their more practical versions. A peninsula can really just be an alternative to the kitchen island, where you would usually install a sink and a cook top. Some of these designs have additional features like drawers, built-in ovens, or shelves, if you will.
The kitchen is an odd room. It’s a space originally designed for cooking but, with time, it has also become a social space where friends and families spend time together, where they chat while someone is making dinner or where they simply gather to socialize. But a kitchen needs to be, first of all, functional. It’s a space where style comes second but, nevertheless, doesn’t have to be ignored. It’s a space where everything has to be perfectly balanced.
