Light and airy, this beautiful and sleek kitchen combines minimalism with utilitarianism. A silver and white colour palette means the design can suit every house and budget!

2. Square block and panel kitchen

The stark contrast of white and wood are reminiscent of the best 60s design, without being over the top. Well matched accessories and polished surfaces round out the look, creating a space that is inviting and impressive but still relatively low maintenance.

3. Airy, bright and reflective

The extensive use of glass in this kitchen provides plenty of natural light to better illuminate the space and give a natural feel. Surfaces gleam and reflect the beautiful ceiling lamps, to create the illusion of an even larger space.

4. Impressive and expansive

Ultra-modern and chic, this kitchen makes use of small space to provide a truly unique cooking environment. A featured island with pull-out bar stools creates a great place to sit, relax, eat or prepare food, without using an excessive amount of square meterage. This kitchen is perfect for an environment like Singapore, where space comes with a premium price tag!

5. Timeless elegance

The wooden panelling and shining bench tops create a perfect ambience for culinary masterminds. Stairs at the back entrance to the kitchen perfectly frame the floor space, creating a boundary which nicely separates this room from the rest of the house. Again, a natural colour palette ensure this room fits into almost any home, and the open plan facade is both attractive and utilitarian (and will cut down electricity bills!)

6. Modern elegance with a rustic feel

Exposed ceiling lights and excellent use of colour contrast – this kitchen is a modernist’s dream! Prepare your meals at the expansive bench to the rear of the room, or utilise the large floating island – there is plenty of space to prepare all your tasty food. The amount of floor space means this type of design may be tricky for some smaller Singaporean homes, but it is certainly worth considering as an option if you can swing the space.

7. Black and white dream

The ultimate in minimalist luxury! Black, white and grey combine for a truly magical space which is easy enough to keep clean while still being impressive to the eye.

8. Modern and cheerful

Contrary to many of the entries on this list, this kitchen utilises pops of red and pink to create intrigue and increase space. White benches and hardware nicely contrast the interesting ceiling lamp and colourful wall art.

9. Luxury in marble

New York luxury abounds in this tiled, tailored kitchen. Modern and sleek in design, this kitchen is reminiscent of old-school luxury with marble accents, but the charcoal colour palette brings it firmly into the 21st century.

10. Concrete Complex

11. Thatched contemporary
