The kitchen is perhaps the most enjoyable room to add furniture to in your dollhouse. Not only are there lots of options to consider, but once you are done, there are a lot of accessories you can add As you are choosing furniture for your kitchen, here are a few questions to consider.
Kids at age 36 months start to imitate what adults do in their daily activities. When adults like their mom and dad do laundry, cooking, cleaning, or even eating, kids watch them doing these activities and imitate them. Parents should consider getting their kids toys that work with this imitation pattern, and let the kids experience doing the same activities that adults do with similar toys. Kitchen sets for kids are one of the best toys you can get for your kids, especially for girls. Kids will experience make believe activities such as preparing the food, cooking, setting a table and washing the dishes. More excitingly, many sets also come with a refrigerator that will make the kids play time much more thrilling. Kids can pretend getting the food to cook out from the refrigerator and putting leftovers into it.
Kitchen Islands have become so popular that this has even led to the creation of unique design styles of their own. A kitchen island can have the same design as the main counter and cabinets or it can have its own unique design.
Include a ventilation hood overhead to eliminate smoke, steam and cooking odors if your kitchen island is going to have a cooktop. The range hood should extend beyond the cooking area by 3 inches or more on the sides for proper ventilation. Using the correct fan size will ensure that removal happens as intended. Have a fan capacity of about 50 cubic feet per minute for each square foot of cooktop area.
Kitchen islands have different shapes. Some may have the letter L form. Others may have a square, round, oval or rectangular shape. Either way, you can choose your own style and shape as long as it is convenient and easy for you to use. Aside from that, it is very important that your island should be well lit so that you can work properly in your kitchen. Kitchen islands can be built to suit small kitchens, large kitchens and even can be placed outdoors.
Besides meal preparation, the kitchen can become a gathering area for family and friends if there is enough space. Since so much happens in the kitchen on a regular basis, getting the layout right is important. The kitchen island can serve as an additional eating area, and food preparation can easily be done there. In a large kitchen, the kitchen island can shorten the distances within the working triangle sink, refrigerator and range or cooktop and make it more efficient.
Adding an eating area to your kitchen island is a popular option, if you have the space. A raised counter, creating a two tiered island adds useful space to the kitchen while separating the eating surface from the food preparation surface of the island. This type of arrangement is great for families as the children can do homework on the raised surface, while other family members can be preparing a meal. The family can spend time together, yet keep their things separate from each other. The eating area added to an island can add useful space to the kitchen or help to define the kitchen space from other areas of the house.
