A parent searching for a pretend kitchen for their son or daughter need look no further after looking at Kidkraft kitchen sets. These durable Kidkraft toys are built to last through years of utter destruction and tireless hours of play. The kitchen sets come with plenty of accessories to complete the play area and parents will love the fact that if a part gets broken, it can be replaced. Kids will love the idea that they can get in the kitchen and play house, or that they can get in the kitchen and whip up whatever Mommy and Daddy want to eat. Either way, Kidkraft toys and Kidkraft kitchen sets are superior to others of their kind.
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.
Squeezing a kitchen island into a very limited space may make your kitchen appear unappealing and cluttered regardless of the features or countertops you have. Consider that there are already existing appliances in your kitchen that you need to make room for.
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.
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.
If you have a smaller kitchen space, that does not mean that you can not add island space to your kitchen. A portable kitchen island or food preparation cart can add usable surface area in a smaller space. You can store the cart out of the way most of the time, and then roll it out for use during meal preparation. The movable island can match your kitchen cabinets or it can have a completely different style, the choice is yours.
