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.
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.
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.
Determine what you are going to use the island for. When choosing an island design for your kitchen, one of the most effective steps is to determine the function of the island. Will you use it strictly as a place to eat and chat? Will you use it for a microwave, refrigerator, or sink? There is no right or wrong function of your kitchen island. Instead, it is important to determine how it can enhance your time in the kitchen.
Look at the big picture. When you pick out a design for the kitchen island, take a look at the rest of your kitchen decor. Depending on what you want, you can match the island to your kitchen decor, or you can contrast it with it, as long as it goes with your overall theme. For example, you could make your island match your kitchen cabinets exactly, or you can contrast them and match them to the kitchen table chairs in your kitchen instead. This is one of the more popular trends in modern kitchens, in fact, to match the kitchen island to the furniture instead of to the cabinets, so be sure to pay attention to the kitchen table chairs as well.
