Wet Kitchen Vs Dry Kitchen

A wet kitchen refers to a kitchen where a lot of heavy-duty cooking is being done.

These include:

  • Cooking with open fire stoves
  • Cutting and chopping of raw food
  • Sinks and basins for washing food
  • etc

In general, cooking activity that requires extensive cleanup after will be in a wet kitchen.

For example, after stir-frying meat, there will inevitably be oil making things around the stove greasy. A wipe down will then be required to clean up.

The effects of such intensive cooking are so unliked that owner-occupied landlords often prohibit tenants from conducting them such as cooking curry even when there is a wet kitchen, and would only allow tenants to do light cooking.

However, tenants who rent a whole apartment for themselves seldom face such restrictions imposed by landlord.

A dry kitchen refers to a kitchen where light cooking is done. It is also often accompanied by a dining area for table and chairs for the family.

Light cooking in a dry kitchen includes:

  • Microwaving food to heat up
  • Toasting bread
  • Boiling water
  • etc

This is also an area where most electronic kitchen appliances like coffee makers and rice cookers are situated.

Because of the mess using the wet kitchen can make, residents often avoid using them as much as they can, and instead use dry kitchens whenever possible,

However, modern homes these days are often designed with modular kitchens that have a dry and wet area.

So much so that sometimes, a wet kitchen might be set up in a separate space from the dry kitchen.

Cabinets are mostly built-in in the dry area, and customization are done to install appliances that fits nicely into empty spaces along cabinets.
