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.
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.
The design of a kitchen island is completely up to the homeowner. Some of the islands come in a natural wood color. This allows the homeowner to keep the island counter in the natural wood finish or the counter can be stained. Before designing the countertop, the home owner should decide what look he or she is trying to achieve in the kitchen. A new trendy is to install a island top that is a bright color that does not necessarily match the already present color scheme in the kitchen. This makes the kitchen seem more artsy and funky and can make the island really stand out in the room. A homeowner may also decide that he or she wants a traditional kitchen island countertop that matches the rest of the color scheme. He or she will then need to design the kitchen island counter with the same materials and staining as the rest of the cabinetry and countertops in the kitchen.
A island counter can be a great place to put a microwave, blender or mixer. Some islands can have electrical outlets installed and can allow for the operation of these appliances while they are resting on the counter. A island countertop can also have a stove top installed to allow for more cooking space in the kitchen. These islands may also need to be equipped with an exhaust fan for the stove top.
How much room do I have? Some doll houses have areas for a very big kitchen other dollhouses will not have very much space. If you have plenty of room, you may want to fill it with counters, islands, and maybe even a breakfast nook. If your kitchen is tiny, just stick to the essentials a sink, a set of cupboards, and perhaps a refrigerator.
However, tropical destinations are not the only type of island we can use to upgrade our lives. Adding a kitchen island is a simple way to enhance any home, and are no longer the preserve of those with swathes of floor space to spare.
The Lighting Your design for the new island in your kitchen should also include having the right lighting. Ambient lighting, although it may add drama to your kitchen, is not enough for eating, chopping or stirring. Recessed lightings work well not unless you have very high ceilings. Higher ceilings are challenging to light your island kitchen counter, thus, pendant lights are in this case because they provide direct beams of light to your island.
