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.
Two is Better Than One With the different levels, materials, and appliances that are all used to create a kitchen island, why stop with just one? Adding multiple islands creates not one, but two or more focal points for your kitchen. Multiple islands could be connected or remain separated in your kitchen to give yourself additional countertop space, gathering areas, and more. Putting an island on wheels is another way to make the island convenient, and is a perfect idea for people who love to entertain and need a space that can change in an instant.
What kind of colors and materials do I want? Some kitchen sets are made all out of one kind of material for example, everything is made out of wood, or all the pieces are plastic others have a mixture for example, wooden cabinets with a plastic refrigerator. The most common type of material in a kitchen set is wood, either painted white or stained a certain color oak, maple, walnut, pine, cherry. There are many types of hand painted kitchen sets, either plain all painted blue or black, for example, or decorated. You can purchase kitchen sets that are very simple in terms of style and materials, or very polished you can buy furniture with marble countertops, stylized cabinets, or padded chairs. Just keep your desired style and your budget in mind as you shop around.
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.
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.
One con that was noted was placement of an island can disrupt the flow of a kitchen. The work flow in a kitchen revolves around a triangle of refrigerator, sink, and range. An island can actually disrupt the flow of this working triangle, causing more issues in preparation, cooking, and cleanup. It is important to have placement so there is not a dead zone in the kitchen, or an area of countertop that goes unused due to the placement of the island.
