How to make your small HDB kitchen stand out

Having a small kitchen does not mean you cannot make the most out of it. Do not let space constraints discourage you from making the heart of your home stylish and unique. Squeeze your creative juices and unleash your interior design diva in making your kitchen stand out!

Let these IG-worthy kitchens inspire you to up the design ante of your small HDB kitchen:

1. MAXIMISE NATURAL LIGHT

Do not block the natural flow of light to make the kitchen look bright and airy.

2. SPORT A NEAT PANTRY

The kitchen below is truly #pantrygoals with the neatly organised supplies using carefully-labelled baskets and jars.

3. HAVE A GOOD MIX OF OPEN SHELVING AND CABINETS

Maybe it's time to swap out those bulky-looking upper cabinets with unique open shelving.⠀

4. STYLE IT UP

Cosy up your small kitchen by extending one of your counters and adding bar stools at the end of it. No need for another kitchen counter or breakfast nook because you already have one!

5. KEEP THE COUNTERS FREE FROM APPLIANCES

Make your open kitchen a little less cluttered by storing appliances in cabinets or open shelves when not needed.

6. KEEP IT TO THE ESSENTIALS

If you really have limited space, trim your kitchen down to the essentials: a counter where you can fit your sink, gas range, and a little space in between to do your kitchen chores.

7. GIVE IT SOME CHARACTER

Having a small kitchen does not mean you can't do anything with it in the style department. Sometimes, a small space can be packed with a lot of character just like the kitchen above.

8. RECOGNISE THE POWER OF PLANTS

Refresh your small kitchen with a plant or two.
