The kitchen is small, and so must be well designed. One feature is the peninsula. This is the heart of the kitchen, where there are seats, where we eat, with a cutting board top and a pull-out cutting board below.
However, sometimes more space is nice in the Kitchen. So we built the peninsula on hinges, with a removable post at the far side. Just lift up, remove post, and guide the peninsula toward the floor. During the building process I had a temporary post without securing tabs, and I inadvertently broke a beloved mug. All genius ideas can be implemented poorly!
