Cabinetry.

One of the area that i love most in the house is warm and inviting kitchen.In my present house ,we have one proper kitchen only as the wet kitchen is very simple,just the stove placed on the counter top at the back of the house. For my dry kitchen they all white, i spent a lot on the cabinet,they are of a very good quality, using semangkok wood and was sprayed with white,the cabinet is the combination of everything as i want to have a bit of everthing : lattice doors,wood canopy hood,open shelves for plates,standing shelves for tv and oven and the carpenter had a done a very good job. For my new house i cant spend so much as i have dry and wet kitchen and i have to be careful with budget.I ve done my homeworks on how to save and at the same time to have your dream kitchen. I always dream of having french provencal kitchen,to have the the door cabinets be painted with regal blue,when i told my the cabinet man about the idea he was first sceptical about painting the doors blue as no locals like to have their kitchen in blue but i know what i want. So i have my wet kitchen in blue just like what i always imagined,for my dry kitchen i still like to maintain it white, to extend the feeling of the old kitchen in the new house,the only different is my new dry kitchen is using "barn doors ' design with porcelain door knobs which is handpicked by me. I have small bar top where i can place coffee pot and cakes there,there's a place for everybody especially for tia and mia. How i wish that i don't have to compromise with certain things due to the budget contsraint. My advice to those doing their kitchen cabinet: do your homeworks,know every basic so that you can tell exactly of what you want to your cabinet man ,if you have big budget do spent more on your kitchen as it will last forever and you gonna spend most of your time there,go for all the good quality materials like solid wood,granite or solid surface,good hood/hob and built in oven as these materials bring elegance and comfort. To me house is your foundation of nourishing love,it should be warm and loveable and therefore you should have the best materials.If i can summarize house it will be : wood,rock and clay-these materials are warm and friendly.

Built in oven is placed at the dry kitchen as i have planned my dry kitchen to be a place for coffee,cakes and magazines only.

Wet kichen in progress, two open shelves are fixed at the left and right side of the hood, the top cabinets will be in white while the base will be in regal blue. I love the tiffany pendant light as the yellow light compliment the blue base doors.

The men doing their works,they used laser lights to ensure accuracy..i love watching them doing works,so much you can learn from it.
