This Kitchen Layout is the Best For Cooking In
If you're an avid cook, a well-designed wet and dry kitchen combination will make a world of difference to daily whip-ups! A practical solution, splitting up your kitchen into distinct open and enclosed areas helps to make cooking a more efficient (and tidy) affair.
Wet, enclosed kitchens are great for heavy-duty cooking and washing - so as to keep unsavoury smells and grime away from the rest of the home. Meanwhile, a dry kitchen bar works great if you just want a quick bite - or entertain guests outside whilst preparing some bites! To give you an idea, here are seven stylish ideas for this ultra-practical layout - as seen in real homes:
1. Cheria Residences, Tropicana Aman
Interior Designer: X Dimension Design
A wet and dry section is almost a must in a spacious kitchen like this! Still, even with a fair amount of space, clever partitioning between the wet and dry is necessary to allow a convenient walk space. Notice that the layout and installed cabinetry is in a u-shape; this design leaves plenty of floor space and enhances the overall roominess.

This contemporary, minimalist kitchen is the perfect mix of practicality and understated style. Darker tile floors matched with lighter cabinetry lends a deeper, almost rustic quality to the wet kitchen. The dry kitchen on the other hand, is fitted with lighter floors and pristine white cabinetry to create a visually larger space.
3. Stafford, Setia Eco Glades
Interior Designer: Pocket Square
Storage is still important in both wet and dry kitchens – and this kitchen kills it, storage-wise! Plenty of creative solutions are at work here, from niches in the island of the dry kitchen to the extended cabinetry in the wet kitchen. In addition, the natural wood and stone finishing in both kitchens add a connective layer between the spaces. This helps maintain kindred styling in both rooms.
4. Saujana Duta, Seremban
Interior Designer: Spazio Design
It’s common for dry kitchens to be smaller in size than its wet counterpart, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice practical installations like a dining area. This dry kitchen (or kitchenette) maximises utility with a small breakfast bar and provides access to the basics like a microwave, fridge and sink, making food prep a possibility. For heavy duty cooking and prepping, the wet kitchen, separated by black-paned sliding doors, fulfils its purpose as a fully-equipped modern extension.

Interior Designer: M Innovative Builders
If you’re looking for a peaceful calming spot to sip your tea, pull up a chair in this dainty, genteel dry kitchen! With a lovely brick wall backsplash, natural wood and warm white elements, the atmosphere is homely and soothing. For major cooking activities, make your way to the narrow but full, galley wet kitchen that boasts contemporary style.
6. House 21, Puchong Kinrara
Interior Designer: Yong Studio
This space would easily make for a dream kitchen, whether you’re an amateur or professional cook! These incredibly spacious wet and dry kitchens have raised the bar when it comes to style and practicality. The wet kitchen is airy and light with white cabinetry, glossy tiled floors, and plenty of natural light. The dry kitchen on the other hand has a more rustic/modern look with warm wood cabinetry, a marble breakfast bar and whitewashed sink space.
7. Laman Rimbunan, Kepong
Interior Designer: Torch Empire
Warm, homely and seamlessly connected in terms of design; these wet and dry kitchens share elemental styles right up to the dining area. With plenty of warm, natural hues and wood cabinetry, these kitchens look the contemporary part. More importantly, it makes the most out of limited space. The u-shaped wet kitchen is given a space boost with lighter floors and cabinetry that go up to the ceiling!
