Create A Black And Gold Kitchen
A uniquely innovative and luxurious kitchen renovation idea is to incorporate the colour scheme of black and gold in it. These are the colours that we usually use when we want to add luxury and royalty in the living room or the bedroom interior design, so why not use a similar colour theme for the kitchen as well?
You can choose some elements or shelves of the kitchen to be gold while keeping the other things black. If, however, you feel that the gold colour in the kitchen would be a little too much, then we have the right alternative for you! Try choosing a particular wood or laminate shade that is much closer to golden colour.
This way, you would be able to achieve the effect of black and gold to some extent while still keeping everything functional and convenient. As an inspiration, you can view the following image where black and light oak wood is used to achieve the black and gold effect. Notice how it creates a luxurious and royal appeal in the space.
Add A Kitchen Island Even If There Is Little Space
Another interior design idea that you can incorporate is to add a kitchen island. If you do not want to make the kitchen renovation cost too much, you can simply add an island and keep the other things as it is. The island will create a completely new outlook which would be achieved in minimum kitchen renovation cost. If you think that your kitchen is too small, there are still ways you can add an island in it. One way is to add a peninsula instead of a kitchen which you can add right next to a wall to save some space.
Alternatively, if you can spare some space in the middle, then just add a sleek island there which can only serve the purpose of a counter with some stools around it. This can be seen in the following image where a sleek island rests in the middle to create a beautiful outlook. Notice how the track lights above the island further enhance its appearance which you should also add in your design.

Scandinavian Design Theme With A Twist
One kitchen renovation Singapore idea is to choose a particular design theme just like you would choose one for the living room or the bedroom. One such theme that goes really well in a kitchen is the Scandinavian theme. But instead of opting for a traditional Scandinavian theme, we will give you ideas on how you can have a Scandinavian interior design kitchen with a twist.
As an inspiration, consider the following image where a Scandinavian theme is applied but instead of using light and neutral tones, we see warm wood tones that play around beautifully with the crisp lines and clean interiors that are specific to the Scandinavian theme. The dark wood shelves contrast perfectly with the white countertops and white overhead cabinets.
The rawness of the wooden elements are contrasted by the glossy and shiny white cabinets above. In the end, white light is used to illuminate all elements and create a fresh and airy Scandinavian aesthetic.
Create A Retro Modern Design Theme
Often we think about adding some fun element to the living room or the bedroom but never for the kitchen. But why shouldn’t that be? There’s no harm in having a kitchen where you can enjoy the aesthetics and have some fun while you are cooking around for the rest of the family! One kitchen renovation idea in this case is to create a retro modern space.
As an inspiration, consider the following image where the walls are covered with splashed paint wall art. This could either be in the form of wallpaper or paint. The walls also feature some cool wall hangings or signs These rugged and retro style walls are contrasted beautifully by adding neat and clean off-white shelves with a dark wood countertop. The floors are also kept simple in contrast with the artistic walls. Add in a few track lights and indirect lighting and you will get yourself a showstopper.

White All The Way
Just like black and gold have their own charm, the exquisiteness and elegance of white cannot be matched by any other color. And one might think that white is not a good color for the kitchen since it can get dirty easily. But if you are a bit careful and take care of tidying up frequently, then white is the color for you. And not just for the cabinets of countertops, we are talking about white walls, white cabinets, white floors, and white backsplash.
You can see from the following image that such a white interior looks simply breathtaking. Also notice how the designers have intelligently used warm as well as white lights which greatly improve the visual depths and enhance the overall appearance. You can opt to use either warm lights or white lights according to your preferences.
Create An Earthly Kitchen
Another HDB kitchen renovation idea is to bring some earthly tones and elements into the kitchen so as to create a closer to a natural appearance. Such colours help create a soothing and serene environment which can be very enjoyable when one is cooking in the kitchen. As an example, consider the following image where we see a very cool and serene shade of jade green that is the main focus of the space. This colour has been used for the shelves with contrasting light oak wood countertops. But this jade colour is not used for the overhead cabinets since they would have been a little too much for the eyes. Instead, neutral off-white cabinets have been chosen. The floor is also a work of art with a very distinctive black and white patterned tile design. White spotlights and warm indirect lighting create a dramatic effect in the area.
Unique Marble Backsplash
Usually when talking about kitchen interior design, we see the use of marble for either the floors or the countertops. But to add a unique effect to the space, you can also choose a marble design for the walls or the backsplash. That will not only create a unique appearance but will also look refreshing and elegant. In the following image, we can clearly see how a typical white and gray marble pattern is used for the backsplash and countertops to create a stylish and elegant space. The light gray shelves and cabinets blend beautifully with this marble pattern. A set of beautiful hanging lamps over the peninsula add to the beauty of the design.
One more kitchen renovation idea revolves around the Scandinaviantheme where a touch of wood is added to an otherwise light and neutral Scandinavian theme. The Scandinavian theme can be a bit too dull and colourless for some people. Therefore, adding a pop of colour in some form to this design will help uplift its appearance. To add the colour, you can opt for one of the walls of the kitchen to be painted in one bright solid colour. Or you can incorporate wood into the design in some form. As can be seen in the following image, warm wood tones and textures have been used for the countertops and backsplash of one wall. This adds just the right amount of colour and texture to the design without compromising the Scandinavian essence.
Combination Of Laminate And Aluminum
The combination of wood and aluminium is that of beauty, grace, and class. The wood depicts the raw and natural elements of the design whereas aluminium adds a touch of modernism and style to it. As you can see in the following image, the lower shelves are made of laminate whereas the overhead cabinets are of aluminium. If you think that aluminium might raise the kitchen renovation cost, then you can even opt for regular cabinets and have them painted in such a silver shade that it gives the effect of aluminium. This way, you will be able to create a beautiful aesthetic on a minimum budget as well!
