When it comes to renovating your new BTO or HDB home, make sure you put as much effort into the design of your kitchen as the rest of your house.

As the kitchen is a place for you to whip up delicious meals for yourself and your family, making it look like the one you have been dreaming of all your life will motivate you to step in and cook.

Although flats in Singapore are known for being small, there are still some ways to make your small kitchen look spacious as well as luxurious.

Read on to find out the tips!

#1 Incorporate a bar counter

If you think having a dining table in your living room is going to take up too much space, incorporating a bar counter in your kitchen is a great way to save space and make your kitchen look like it belongs in a showroom!

Simply include some high counter chairs for you to have your meals and drink the night away at. You can also do your food preparations there when cooking, effectively helping to save space in your home while making your kitchen look luxurious.

#2 Choose marble wall tiles/countertop

Marble print is extremely aesthetically appealing and will instantly amp up the luxe factor of your kitchen.

If you can afford it, go ahead and choose real marble wall tiles or countertops. For those who are on a tight budget, there are affordable porcelain tiles with the marble print that look just as good as the real deal.

#3 Install hidden light fixtures

Installing hidden warm light fixtures under your kitchen cabinets and floor will give your house a relaxing vibe. It will look especially stunning in the night when the rest of the lights in your living room are turned off and only the kitchen's hidden lights are turned on.

If you usually get up in the middle of the night to get a drink or go to the toilet, these lights will be able to help your eyes adjust to the dark and guide you around your surroundings too.

#4 Choose transparent doors

Love an open-concept kitchen but don't want all the grease and grime from your cooking to get to the rest of your house? If so, choosing a transparent door is the solution!

As the doors are see-through, it gives the illusion of a bigger kitchen and will make it look like an open-concept one at the same time. You can close the doors when cooking and leave them open during the rest of the day.

#5 Place your cooking ingredients in glass jars

Place your most used cooking ingredients in transparent glass jars and label them. Other than looking good, it also saves you time rummaging through your cupboards looking for the right ingredient!
