Recipe for harmony

Recipe for harmony

You have heard of his-and-hers bathrooms, even his-and-hers wardrobes. But what about his-and-hers kitchens?

That is the solution that Chef Julien Bompard, 43, and his wife Edith Lai, 41, came up with when they moved into their 1,400 sq ft apartment in Cherry Avenue seven years ago.

Recipe for harmony

To create two kitchens to accommodate their different cooking styles, they removed the walls of one of three bedrooms. The kitchens are separated by a small corridor.

Chef Bompard says: "The agent who sold the place to us said it would be difficult to sell it next time. But it's how we like to use our space and we want to be happy living here."

Each kitchen has been configured to suit their different cooking styles.

For example, the countertops and stove in Chef Bompard's sleek black kitchen are higher than normal to accommodate his 1.8m height. The 150 sq ft space is kitted out in De Dietrich appliances as he is one of its brand ambassadors here. He also uses an induction hob to cook.

His wife's side, a 100 sq ft kitchen, is more traditional-looking, with stoves and shelves in semi-frosted glass.
