This is the front view of the roombox, which has a kitchen on the left and dining area on the right. I used just about everything included with the kit, but made a few changes to personalize it. I changed the wallpaper to one with fruits to go with the theme of kitchen. For the ceiling, I painted a warm white and added Roll-a-tex to give it a textured popcorn ceiling effect.
All the cabinets were included with the kit and came already painted! You wouldn't believe what a time saver that was. We had a choice of colors for the fridge and stove and hood, and I chose avocado. The cabinets came white, but I painted them all Ceramcoat Eucalyptus (what I had on hand) to add color to the room. In my RL, I am all neutral (tan, beige etc), but for my dollhouse projects, I use color whenever I can. I really liked the look of the fridge and stove/hood---they were just too pretty to have one appliance in a corner, so I had them both front and center to show them off. However, this doesn't follow the triangle principle of efficiency for modern kitchens. I also added the dining table in the kitchen area, which is a departure from true kitchens from this era, which in general did not have an island; but I did this in order to anchor and balance the room so it didn't have a big empty space on the left side of the roombox. Besides, you can think of this as an updated vintage kitchen.
