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.
The kitchen island as a stand alone platform in the middle of the kitchen provides convenience and efficiency by creating more workspace. When the island is located in the center of the kitchen more space in automatically created. In most situations a kitchen island is the ideal way to separate the kitchen from the living room. If the kitchen island has cook top, sinks or pull out drawer refrigerators then this accommodates greater convenience and socializing since one can do dishes and preparation while conversing with guests in the living room. There are endless uses for kitchen islands.
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 newer kitchen island ideas include the following features rolling islands that can be used where a large island wont fit, granite topped islands, and islands with furniture like features such as pilasters.
Kitchen Islands are also available in many styles and designs such as Contemporary, Traditional, American Folk and French Country.
