Credit: Two Dots InteriorHaving a well-equipped and functioning kitchen is always handy in Singapore. Eating out is not always the healthiest option, nor is it always the best decision for your wallet. Being able to cook at home also gives you more options for entertaining guests, whether celebrating a special occasion at home, or having friends over for a meal, home cooked food always makes your guests feel welcomed. With BTO flats shrinking nowadays, the kitchen area has decreased over the years, with less emphasis on a big kitchen in the home to make way for the other rooms. So if you are thinking of renovating your existing home, or you’re looking to design the layout of your new flat, it is important to consider the size of the kitchen, and how you can maximize the amount of space you have with these tips.
Use built in fixturesHaving appliances built into the walls or cupboards not only saves you space on the counter tops, but keeps the kitchen looking neat and tidy. Whether you’re considering having an oven, microwave, dishwasher, or any other kitchen appliance, try integrating it into the design of the cupboards. Having countertop appliances take up precious space on the shelves. And if not kept neatly, they can end up making the kitchen look like a mess.
Use an islandMany people may argue that a kitchen island takes up unnecessary space in the space constrained kitchen. But if you are able to maximize the use of that island, it becomes a space saving masterpiece. Having an island that can act as a preparation table, dining table, and drawers will maximize the space and functionality of the available space in the kitchen.
