Big fan of breakfast bars/stools near the cooking/prep area so chef can still interact with guests, appetizers can be served // SallyL: Cardel Designs - Open plan kitchen and dining room with breakfast bar.
Another modern design HDB BTO flat, with open concept kitchen which results in a three room setting combined into one. The kitchen, the living area and the dining area are all combined into one large room. The only separation is the kitchen island, but.
This HDB apartment is an excellent example of how subtle mix and match can be. What is interesting about the interior is that the designer opts for more modern flooring materials in the dining room, such as tiles, but still sticks to parquet in.
