Starting from February 2018 BTO exercise, all home buyers will only be offered open kitchens. Previously, HDB provided home buyers the option to pay extra to have a kitchen partition wall installed, which was a standard item under the Optional Component Scheme. This recent announcement also means that homeowners are given more flexibility in designing their living space. Let’s take a look at some design inspirations for your open kitchen!
There are many ways to design an open concept kitchen. Some of the most popular designs are the semi open kitchen, usually partitioned by glass doors (swing / sliding) or a half wall counter / island style. If you do heavy cooking often, a semi-open kitchen works best as it will help contain the cooking aromas while a fully open kitchen is more suitable for light cooking.
