New Year. New Home. New Kitchen.

Happy belated New Year! I have been really busy with renovating and shifting home in the past few months. I cooked. Just didn't post new recipes. Now that the whole family is more or less settled down, I would resume more cooking sessions for the family and continue to post recipes.

In this home, I am fortunate enough to have 2 kitchens - a dry kitchen and a wet kitchen. Due to time constraints, we have been unable to renovate our wet kitchen this time round. It is a 20 year old wet kitchen that I am currently using. This phase 2 renovation would be carried out next year. 

Here's sharing in detail the new facility that I have - my new dry kitchen. 

Huge Island with Quartz countertop for food preparation. Overhead spotlights for foodie photoshoots.
Samsung side-by-side doors refrigerator with ice cubes and ice water dispensers. I have another Hitachi side-by-side doors refrigerator in the wet kitchen. 
Simple single bowl Blanco sink and tap. I opted for top mount instead of an under mount sink this time. This would enable flexibility to change to similar size sinks when necessary. I love my simple subway tile backsplash too. When it comes to cleaning and maintenance....easy.....
Ariston hood. Another of my favorite piece is the Mayer hybrid hob. It is induction cooking on the left and ceramic cooking on the right side. I get to enjoy the best of both worlds. And yes, I have gas cooking at the wet kitchen too.
Ariston built-in oven and microwave oven. 
To avoid dead corner space wastage, my contractor suggested that I open the corner cabinet doors this way - a simple and brilliant solution for me.
Simple condiments rack as I do not expect very heavy cooking at the dry kitchen.
No more hanging of dish cloths over my oven. This time, I installed a proper bar at the island to hang my dish cloths.

A simple, yet functional dry kitchen. I hope you have enjoyed going through my new stuffs :)
