Live Well. Laugh Often. Love Much.

Something’s Cooking!

The focus of my blog post this time round will be on the kitchen.

They say the kitchen is the heart of the home.

I ALSO SAY!

The kitchen is the most important room at home because it is the central focus of our family’s day-to-day living. In our kitchen, we find love and family and togetherness…AND LOTS OF GOOD FOOD.

And only in my kitchen can I find #AZIZAHCANCOOK.

Therefore, it is not a surprise if much attention is being paid to the kitchen’s layout, design and functionality, no matter the size.

This is the reason why Icon Interior Design has decided to have a KITCHEN DESIGN CHALLENGE this time round.

More about that (together with photos of the finalists) later.

Let me talk a bit more about the kitchen.

When I re-renovated my current place, the main focus of the renovation was actually the kitchen.

My kitchen is small. No, it is tiny. Miniscule.

I bet this is the case for most kitchens these days. The kitchen just keeps getting smaller! I am not too sure why. If married couples in Singapore are encouraged to have more babies, shouldn’t the size of the house and especially the kitchen get bigger too? We are not hamsters living in an overcrowded wire cage, you know?

When I heard about urbanKITCHEN by Blum, I was sold immediately. Icon Interior Design happens to be Blum’s certified partner, so what they did for me was to get to know my lifestyle and habits before planning the layout of my kitchen together with Blum.

If you have a problem with the size of your tiny kitchen and keep wondering how to keep it organized, then you should really consider getting urbanKITCHEN instead of the normal kitchen.

OKAY AT THIS POINT, I WILL STOP JUST FOR A WHILE AND ANSWER WHAT YOU ARE ALREADY THINKING.

“EXPENSIVE OR NOT THIS URBAN KITCHEN?”

RELAX. NOT AT ALL!

What if I tell you that you can even get a FREE UPGRADE to the urbanKITCHEN?

Will tell you more as we go along. Reading my blog post is like a taking walk at the park you know? You got to accompany me till the end.

But let me ask you – what is the point of having a really beautiful kitchen when you have problems storing everything and keeping them organized?

In other words,

“People have to know there is more to living than just physical beauty.”

Deep huh?

Yes, as deep as Blum’s drawers.

No, really. Their drawers are really deep, and this is just one of their many ways to help ensure you have a lot of storage space in your kitchen.

Come on now, let’s compare a normal kitchen with an urbanKITCHEN. All these kitchens have been designed by Icon Interior Design.

Can you more or less figure out the differences already?

ACTUALLY THE SECRET LIES IN THE STORAGE & LOADING CAPACITY. 

Guys, the kitchen is there for a purpose. It has to prove its worth in day-to-day use, especially for heavy cookers. Agree?

What are the things you should consider when renovating your kitchen and make it worth your money?

  1. Good workflow – if you plan where your things should be stored so that they can be within your reach, you can save a lot of work, distance and time. Things that you should also consider will be whether you are right or left handed. Trust me, you may not think all these little details are important right now. But once you are in the kitchen on a daily basis, you will be thankful that you have carefully planned the layout of your kitchen.
  1. Adequate storage space – Okay, not having much space does not mean you have to miss out on your dream kitchen. It is still possible, as long as you make optimal use of every space. How so? Pull-outs in a high cabinet, deep drawers, in the corner or under the sink are just some ways you can gain plenty of useful storage space. And this is only possible with urbanKITCHEN.
  1. Total comfort of motion – Furniture that is really easy to open even when fully loaded makes the kitchen practical. With urbanKITCHEN, you do not even need handles or knobs anymore. Just a light touch on the front with the hip, knee or foot is all that is required to open the drawers and pull-outs.

When you meet up with your designer from Icon Interior Design, they will go through a number of factors:

  1. Kitchen size
  2. Location of water & power connections
  3. Storage space
  4. Size of household
  5. Habits
  6. Lifestyle

From there, they will let you decide whether or not buying an urbanKITCHEN will be a better choice for you, or whether a normal kitchen will suffice.

But should you decide to go for the urbanKITCHEN current promotion instead of a normal kitchen, you will get to enjoy the following PLUS A FREE UPGRADE!

Promotion upgrade includes:-

  • 26ft Kitchen Cabinet
  • 13ft Silestone worktop
  • Moisture resistant high-density particle board for cabinet doors & carcass
  • 1 set of Aventos-HF Lift System

 

YES YOU READ RIGHT.

NO TOP-UP AT ALL IS REQUIRED FOR URBANKITCHEN!

To find out more plus see for yourself what an urbanKITCHEN looks like, why not you ask the trusted IDS from Icon Interior Design yourself?

ICON INTERIOR DESIGN WILL BE HAVING A BABY HOME DESIGN FAIR FROM 6 TO 9 AUGUST 2016.

 

augfair2016

Interesting dates, guys.

So tempted to call it a BABY FAIR instead because my EDD is on 9 August 2016.

Perhaps they could also plan a baby shower for me as well, you think? Hur hur.

On a serious note, I looked through their promotions for the upcoming fair and I strongly think homeowners (especially BTO homeowners) should not miss out on this upcoming fair. You can miss out on anything else, but just not their HOME DESIGN FAIR FROM 6 TO 9 AUGUST 2016.

NO, I AM NOT KIDDING.

The promotions are really, really, really reaaaaallllllllyyyyyyyy good this time round.

Okay I mentioned earlier about the urbanKITCHEN promotion, which you will get to enjoy only if you sign up with Icon Interior Design during the fair?

Actually, the usual upgrade price is $1248.

Only during the fair, they will give you a FREE UPGRADE TO URBAN KITCHEN which also means you do not need to top up in order to get yourself an urbanKITCHEN instead of the normal kitchen.

UNBELIEVABLE.

AND!

The first 15 people who sign-up for the urbanKITCHEN will receive a FREE Legra-box and a FREE house call service that aims to provide you solutions for a more efficiently organized kitchen!

Just in case you are wondering.

This is a Legrabox.

You will be in love with its loading capacity and the slim drawer slide, trust me!

PLUS, BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

For every sign up with ICON INTERIOR DESIGN during the fair, you will get to SPIN THE WHEEL!

AND ON TOP OF THAT, EVERY SIGN UP WILL ALSO LET YOU ENJOY ALL OF THE FOLLOWING:

  1. $500 Lighting Voucher
  2. TEKA discount vouchers

SOOOOOOOOOO TEMPTING!!!!!!!

So many free goodies just by signing up with Icon Interior Design!

BEST OF ALL, NO GIMMICKS EVEN.

It’s just their way of saying thank you for your support during the previous Icon Home Challenge. It was definitely a great success!

I have been told that they have been receiving a lot of enquiries ever since, and hence this upcoming Home Design Fair!

Just do not forget to mention ETRANGLE (in order to enjoy the above deals) when you contact them, and bring your floor plan when you come down for your appointment, okay?

So why not you contact them now to make an appointment?

Okay fine, so you want to just walk in during one of the fair dates. That’s okay too.

But if you are the impatient sort like me, then you would not want to spend your time waiting for the ID to attend to you. I would rather book an appointment with my preferred timing and/or ID. It’s better that way, isn’t it?

Actually I am not even done yet with the promotion by ICON INTERIOR DESIGN.

If you sign up with Icon Interior Design during the Home Design Fair from 6 to 9 August 2016, you will also get to qualify for their next KITCHEN OR HOME CHALLENGE!

Prizes that await you?

All cash prizes!
