Doing your own custom kitchen island or having a professional do it for you ultimately results in big savings which you can use to customize your kitchen island design even while it is still on the design phase. Having a custom kitchen island can provide your family with more work space not to mention eating space.
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.
What furniture items do I want in my kitchen? You will probably want either some cabinets or a kitchen hutch or both, along with a sink area. You might want to have a kitchen island, a built in area for certain appliances. You may want to have a kitchen table and some chairs or benches, especially if you do not have a separate dining room in the dollhouse. If you are buying a kitchen set, keep in mind that some sets have individual pieces that can be places wherever you want or need them others include a few attached pieces with less options for rearrangement.
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.
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.
Maximize natural light by having windows and skylights, and keep kitchen wall surfaces light in color to reflect daylight. Custom kitchen islands work great by using pendant or recessed fixtures to direct light onto the kitchen island and other work areas. Electrical codes will likely require that electrical outlets be located on the sides of fixed kitchen islands, not on the top, to prevent electrical shock.
