A peninsula is pretty similar to an island but since it‘s attached on one side to a wall it doesn’t need a solid base. It can look something like this, with just a solid top and a side panel for support. Peninsulas are more suitable for small kitchens. They can extend the counter space and offer additional storage space if needed. Other possibilities include using the peninsula as a bar or as a prep area. In a way, a peninsula is just a table attached on one side to a wall or an existing piece of furniture. Peninsulas don‘t necessarily include storage underneath their tops although that too can be an option. You can use a peninsula to define the kitchen as a separate space in the case of an open floor plan or to visually separate the cooking space from the rest of the room.
Radon also cautions against suggestions that you place a radon-in-air test device on a granite surface under a bowl, bucket, or other container. This will, 99% of the time, grossly over-report the radon levels. Forbes magazine also warns consumers about scare-mongering information that can be found online. Simple soapy water is the best for cleaning your granite countertop. From time to time, you may choose to do a deep cleaning if you have been cooking with large amounts of grease or oil. Use a heavy-duty stone cleaner that will degrease the counter and remove surface sealants.

In fact, According to Radon, all natural products, especially stone, minerals, and sand, contain trace amounts of naturally occurring radioactive minerals that can produce measurable amounts of radiation and sometimes radon gas. The site goes on to say that this includes all concrete products, clay bricks, most non-plastic plates and dishes, coal and the fly ash produced in coal-fired power plants, natural gas (contains radon), phosphate fertilizers used in your garden. By nature, granite has some inherent level of radon, and the question is how high that level might be. Because high levels of radon in the home can truly be a hazard to health, we quote directly: After having performed tens of thousands of samples and never finding a granite counter top that produces hazardous amounts of radon gas, Air Chek, Inc has decided that it is a disservice to our customers to offer this product. We instead encourage you to look for a much more likely problem; radon in your home. After much research and testing, it has been determined that granite building materials have a minimal and acceptable amount of radon.
