RL Picks: Top 8 Condo Kitchens

We've rounded up 8 condo kitchens that may inspire you to give your cooking corner an upgrade


The kitchen is the heart of the Filipino home. It is the special place where the family gathers to prepare and share their favorite dishes with the people that they love the most.

Even in a limited area like a condo, the kitchen should be kept in tip-top shape because it can be seen from nearly every corner of the space. It should also be versatile enough to serve as an area for entertaining and dining.

Here are 8 Condo Kitchens that may just inspire you to spruce up your own cooking corner:

K-Zone Editor-in-Chief Maggie Adan’s 63sqm loft-type Condo

The kitchen stands out because of its bright green walls. A magnetic strip placed above the sink is used to store knives and utensils. Since the cabinet doors are covered with chalkboard paint, the panels can be used for reminders, recipes, and grocery lists. (Blackboard paint can be bought at local hardware stores.) A panel with holes is used to organize pots, pans, and dish towels on wall hooks.
