What appliances do I want in my kitchen? Options include a refrigerator or an icebox, an oven, a microwave, a toaster, or a dishwasher. If there is no separate laundry room in your dollhouse, you might be interested in having a washer and dryer in a corner of your kitchen. This question is highly dependent on what era your dollhouse is representing a 1930s kitchen would look very different than a 1990s kitchen. And, if your interested in a completely different time period, you may be looking for butter churners and brick oven stoves.
Cabinets in the body of the island can be used to store less frequently used appliances while open shelving filled with cookbooks or linen and towels can enhance the look of the entire kitchen.
There are some cons of having a kitchen island. The largest one is expense. Placing a permanent kitchen island with running water and electric as many of the islands have can be extremely expensive. If one is doing a kitchen remodel, adding the electric or gas line to an island during a remodel can cost a tremendous amount of extra money. Even without electric, gas, or water, the cost of a stationary island can run into several thousand dollars, which might be better used elsewhere.
Some features to consider in adding a kitchen island can include the oven, kitchen exhaust hood, electric switches and outlets, and storage and shelves. Finally as for the material of the island counter while you could use the same material for the island counter as you have for the kitchen counter it is.
Additional kitchen island ideas are to consider using shelf space on the sides of your kitchen island for cookbooks, collectibles or storage. A built in TV works here, especially if it faces the family room. Or a microwave may work well for heating up after school snacks and cooking foods quickly.
To help make this new area as practical as it can be, consider adding the same fixtures and appliances you find in the original workspace. An extra sink with running water, a stovetop, electrical sockets for blenders and whisks, and space for garbage and recycling bins can save a lot of walking to and fro.
