4 Must-See Kitchen Makeovers in Manila

Be inspired to change your own kitchens with these amazing transformations in Filipino homes


Although we may not notice it, we spend a lot of time in our kitchens. For one, it can take hours to prepare meals everyday. We also end up staying there because it is often faster, easier, and more convenient to eat at the kitchen table instead of the dining area. In fact, many families opt to enjoy breakfast in the comfort of their respective kitchens.

Since the kitchen plays an important role in our homes and our lives, it is so important to take good care of it. If you are thinking of renovating your own kitchen, here are four of our favorite makeovers to inspire you:

A Clutter-free Kitchen for a Cook and a Baker

Homeowners Jason and Maui's kitchen was filled to the brim with ingredients, cookbooks, and utensils. To improve the space, the interior designer chose a bright new color scheme, assigned specific areas for cooking and baking, and added more storage options.
