A Look at HDB Kitchen Renovation Cost in Singapore

Published on November 4, 2020 

It's common for many homeowners who are considering renovating their home's kitchen to ask about the price and costing. Whether it is designing and revamping the kitchen entirely or refurbishing an existing kitchen and minor details, it is wise to have an Interior designer or an Interior company in Singapore to help you out. The kitchen is one of the most important areas in your home where food preparation takes place. Furthermore, it can raise the resale value of your home when it is done well.

It can cost anywhere from $6,000 to $15,000 to update a small kitchen depending on what you install, repair, or upgrade. It's important to set your budget and plan with your interior designer so you can make the best use of your budget. Here are some recommendations for enhancing the Kitchen:

1. Storage Space Planning

Home efficiency is more important than anything for some people. After all, you want a space that's easy to move around and have a good flow in your kitchen design.

2. Lights, Lights, Lights

Lighting is an important aspect of interior design that should not be overlooked as it can transform the appearance and alter the mood of a room or kitchen. It is often the last decision that people make when they are renovating their Home or Kitchen. Therefore, it is important for you to allocate budget for it.

3. Power Socket

Plan and visualize where and how the electrical appliances are going to be used around the house, it's effective to determine where the additional power socket points are needed. A simple visualization drawing by your Interior designer will walk you through how a typical day involves the use of various electrical appliances that would be quite useful for first-time homeowners.

4. Safety First

As the kitchen is easily exposed to hazards every day, it is important for you to take measures to reduce them. Some examples would be ensuring there is ample space between the drawers of 2 adjacent cabinets when they are fully opened so they do not obstruct the walkway, appliances are placed adequately apart for easy usage and cleaning and combustible materials shouldn’t be placed near the hob for safety.

5. Good Ventilation

Under the Optional Component Scheme, BTO owners have the flexibility to have a wall built to separate the kitchen from the rest of the home.  

Take steps to ventilate your home from time to time, such as opening the windows and doors before and after cooking or installing exhaust fans/hob in the kitchen.

In a nutshell, ventilation is letting clean air in and letting stale smells, toxic emissions and stuffy air out of the cooking space.

6. Fresh & Modern Design

Since you have to spend most of your time at home and in the kitchen preparing the food, why not make it a fun place to be with a fresh modern aesthetic? Updating your kitchen doesn't have to cost a fortune if you think and plan well, it can be within your budget.

7. Non-slip Flooring

One of the most important steps to reduce hazard in the Kitchen is to get non-slip flooring in your kitchen. Cleaning the flooring surface regularly helps in removing grease and other contaminants that can make your surface slippery too.


To make all this a reality, you will have to understand some basic principles and rules of Interior design. Plan carefully and thoughtfully with your Interior designer to make your kitchen functional and safe at the same time.
