What Do Coco Martin, Vic Sotto, and Aljur Abrenica Have in Common? Awesome Kitchens!
  • Many say the kitchen is the heart of the home, and we can’t help but agree. It is probably the place with the highest high foot traffic in the house because the kids — and dad — seem to be always hungry! Next to the living room, the kitchen is the most well-loved space in the family, so everyone is invested that it functions well and looks clutter-free.

    There are those who regularly opt to update the look of the kitchen cabinets to give their kitchens an instant makeover. But if you’re stumped for ideas about how to improve your cooking area, we’ve collated photos of celebrity kitchens that may inspire you.

    From Coco Martin’s open kitchen to Aljur and Kylie’s industrial-inspired space, here are 8 beautiful yet functional kitchens you need to see

    Vic and Pauleen have a spacious modern kitchen complete with a six-seater dining table, a kitchen island, and topnotch appliances.

    Décor hack: If your space allows, you may want to incorporate a small dining nook into your kitchen that’s perfect for merienda or breakfast.

Though the one-wall kitchen appears small, it’s well-stocked and fitted with enough storage. The house also has a mess kitchen where the cooking is done, especially when there are guests.

    Décor hack: Group your essentials accordingly and corral them into trays. Choose cute trays that can double as décor! You can also keep the small appliances on the counter to save on space.

There are laminated storage nooks in the area as well as topnotch kitchen appliances.

    Décor hack: Some of the cabinets in Pops’ kitchen have frosted glass, a great option if you still want to conceal what’s inside without making the area look cramped. It can be an alternative to the ordinary glass cabinets we often see in other homes.
