The Start of the Kitchen in Tudor Manor

Hello everyone,

How are you my dear friends? Hope you are enjoying your weekend. The sun is out. There is a slight breeze and the day is just beautiful. It doesn't feel anything like February. It is more like Spring. I can assure you we didn't have a Winter at all this season.  I also wanted to welcome two new followers of my blog Jennifer Gibson and Beth Wilcox. Welcome!

This week I worked a bit on the kitchen for the vintage dolls house Tudor Manor. I am really excited about this one.

1930's kitchen
I have been through a lot of research and pictures and there is so much to see. Once again space is limited not only because the room is small but also because the house is slightly smaller. The wall paper and flooring are the original which came with the house. I have found this great site of Jane Harrop Doll's House Miniatures Kits & Bits. These kits are just brilliant easy to make and just right. I will be getting more of Jane's kits. 

I tried out the kitchen cupboard which you would find in any 1930's or 40's kitchen. As the rooms were quite small these cupboards where ideal not only to store but also served as a work table.

I also got the little sink kit which is perfect not only in size but also for the period. I will be adding a little curtain in the lower part

My father also painted the Ascot Gas water heater for the sink which is an exact replica.

Another lovely kit that my father built and hand painted was the 1939's Moffat Electric Cooker. It opens both doors and being quite petite.

The sink and cooker fitted in so well together by the back wall.

Finally I also built another kit of Jane Harrop which is the kitchen table. The kitchen table used to serve also as a work top in the kitchen.

So far I have added a few accessories to the kitchen cupboard just to see how it all fits in.

So I guess this is all for now there is so much that I still need to add. I am planning to add maybe a washing machine which I have to figure out how to make. I am thinking of adding some shelves to fill the walls too.

So here are some more pictures.

So this is all for today. I hope you like the new additions to the kitchen. There is still so much to add. Hopefully some supplies will come soon. So keep tuned for the next update

Take Care and see you real soon.

  1. The kitchen is looking great! I love Jane Harrop's Kits. I have all her books. Here is a link on how to make a wringer washer. There are also tons of tutorials on this site.

    1. Thank you so much Lucille for the link. It is brilliant.

  2. Looks great! It looks like you fit a lot in a little space. May I ask the measurement of the room? I have a small kitchen in my Victorian house and I cant seem to fit much in there!

    1. Hi thank you so much for your kind words. The room is quite small it is approx 19cm x 29 cm deep. It is quite narrow.

  3. Love your kitchen! It suits the house beautifully.
