Designer Grade Miniature Kitchen Cupboards

Your dollhouse saga continues ...  

Creating in miniature always allows you to come up with something new at every turn. Miniature kitchen cupboards should be no exception. Establishing an ongoing adventure of never a dull moment is possible.

Whenever you look at your current masterpiece you can develop the mindset to always see something new to pursue. After all most craft projects apply here. Anything you like doing in large you can do in mini even easier.

Today let's look at what kind of accessories you can add to your kitchen to bring it to life.

We like to start by observing what you already have in your own kitchen. Maybe you think it's not the greatest and needs improvement. Realize that even the most wanting kitchen can supply ideas for what to incorporate into your miniature.

For instance, if your kitchen does need improvement then picture what you like in mini. It definitely is a super easy way to come up with new and exciting ideas. Possibly it could fuel real life changes too. 

Of course the opposite of that is true also. If you have an amazing kitchen you already have a pool of ideas to explore. After all your pattern is right in front of you everyday. Just copy what you see.  

Some accessory items to consider are:

  • small appliances
  • dishcloths/towels
  • pantry items
  • dinnerware
  • cutlery
  • cook utensils
  • pots/pans
  • cookbooks

Pantry Items - Dinnerware - Cookbooks - Cooking Utensils ...

Be very specific when searching for your accessories. Always place dollhouse miniature in front of whatever you are looking for. Such as dollhouse miniature blender or dollhouse blender or miniature blender. That way you will get back in your search results just what you are wanting.

Use the following search box to begin exploring what you would like to add to your tiny dwelling. You never know what you will find. It could surprise you. Enter your own ideas and voila intricate additions to your dollhouse collection. 

Begin your Search

Start your search for ideas to complement your newly designed miniature kitchen cupboards. Take as much time as you need to explore ideas so as not to do a slap-dash job. 

We all know how it goes ... we end up spending so much time on designing the kitchen itself that adding accessories to your miniature takes a back seat.

Rest Between Design Stages ...

If you are tired of your design after it is completed in one stage. Take a rest before trying the next design area. That rest will give you much needed energy in tackling your next set of goals in creating. Also use this rest period to study more ideas for your mini world with Home Designer. It will be rewarding time well spent in a new direction.

Pantry Items

I love tiny pantry items. They make accessorizing your kitchen very life like. To say the least today you can pretty much get anything you want in a miniature or make it or have it designed. This loaf of wonder bread is amazing. We do not really enjoy this kind of bread in real life but in a dollhouse environment it could add that finishing touch to your design.

Dinnerware

Take for example if you were wanting to stock your shelves you could select some of the items you yourself have in your cabinets. Create a mirror image picking out the closest items you can find. Like this dish rack with dishes. It adds a touch of character and realism to your display. This dinner and dessert plates dish set will add even more items to your dollhouse interior look that you are developing.

Cookbooks

Bet you never thought at one time that you could even get a life like cookbook such as this Better Homes miniature. Wonder what you can dream up for your dolls to make for a meal? Explore your own cookbooks to find the answer to that question. Then create the scene in mini.

Cooking Utensils and Bowls

A five piece kitchen utensil rack is a nice touch to add to any place where you are cooking in mini. As well this mixing bowl and utensil set just call out to design an action scene. Another concept in bringing your tiny dwellings to life.

Simply adorable is this tabletop bread baking set with ingredients. It is one step closer to that action scene we were just talking about.

Dollhouse Food Mini Project

While we are considering our miniature kitchen cupboards, we can not leave out food. Food has its place in dollhouse kitchens and there are some amazing ideas available to add.

Mini Food Project:

Place tiny food on display in the right manner and add to your overall kitchen settings. Look around you. Is there a setting in your home to copy?

Your mission should you decide to accept it. Is to do exactly that. Copy a scene from your own home or kitchen.

Step 1: Observe your family. The way the food and dishes are featured as they interact is important to your creativity. Be observant of just how your family left the table as they departed for work or other events. With their permission take some pictures as they eat. Copy what you see in your dollhouse setting to add to its real life appeal.

Step 2: Get your camera. Take some pictures to help in planning the how's and the how-to's. Even style a setting and then take your pictures. Yes place plates where and how you want them to look. Full of the food of your choice or half-eaten dishes depicting an active miniature family.

Step 3: Plan your design. Work away at your displays until you have the end product you want. Gathering material and supplies as you need to complete your creation. Make sure to enjoy every moment you put into it.

About the Following Product Pictures and Links

Below you will find ideas of food for your display. All links will aid in additional finds for your own miniature kitchen cupboards.
