Six Effective Apartment Kitchen Ideas For West Lafayette Renters

You deserve better. Just because you're renting doesn't mean your kitchen has to be anything short of extraordinary. With a few smart apartment kitchen ideas for your West Lafayette apartment, you can prepare a delicious dinner with ease – regardless of the size of your space. Impress your visitors at your next gathering with your impeccable use of space and unique style by using just a few simple tips.

Here are six helpful hints on how to freshen up your apartment's kitchen, no matter how big the space is or your apartment layout.

Take Stock Of Your Most Frequently Used Kitchen Appliances And Utensils

Do you often mix meats and veggies in a crock and arrive home to a delicious dish that's ready to eat? Have you not plugged in your toaster in the past few months? You should consider which cooking tools and appliances you use most and put other items away on a cabinet shelf. Not only will this open up space, but you'll have less to put away later.

Consider An Island For Your West Lafayette Apartment Kitchen

When counter space is limited, adding an island to your kitchen may offer the extra prep area you need. You can add more adaptability to your apartment kitchen by purchasing an island with wheels. These smart solutions will double as a serving station, extra table, or they can be moved away when you need more floor space.

Hang Your Knives

One of the best space-saving apartment kitchen suggestions for your West Lafayette apartment is to replace the oversized knife block for a clever, wall-hung knife strip. Many restaurant kitchens take advantage of them for their space-saving and convenience. No matter the size or location, a knife strip will add a modern flair to your kitchen. Just be careful to install it where children can’t access!

Free Up Space with a Peg Board

When you need more space, installing a pegboard can be an ideal solution. Pegboards can support enough weight to hang pots and pans or be used to showcase your mugs or glassware in a unique display. A mix of suspended plants alongside your most-used kitchen equipment can allow you to stash your tools without stowing them in cabinets. A pegboard adds functional style to any apartment kitchen in spades.

Double Your Sink As A Prep Surface

Sinks of any size can double as a handy surface for any need. Get a sink cover for drying dishes or for use as a cutting board. When you want to turn on the water, store the top back in a storage area. You can even put down your existing cutting board lengthwise on top of your sink for a suitable sink cover.

Save Space With Backless Stools

Backless stools for your West Lafayette apartment kitchen bar are a smart way to conserve valuable space without sacrificing seating options or style. Simply move them entirely under the bar counter when not in use.
