Six Effective Apartment Kitchen Ideas For Indianapolis Renters

Just because you're only renting a space doesn't mean your apartment's kitchen has to be anything short of gourmet. With just a few innovative apartment kitchen ideas for your Indianapolis apartment, you will be ready to serve up any meal in style – no matter the size of your kitchen. Amaze your visitors at your next dinner party with your intelligent kitchen design and sense of style by using just a few simple tips.

Explore six helpful hints on how to start spicing up your kitchen area, no matter the size of your space or your floor plan.

Take Stock Of Your Most Commonly Used Kitchen Appliances And Utensils

Do you like to combine ingredients in a crockpot and come home to a fresh meal that's perfectly cooked? Have you not used your toaster in the past few months? You should consider which appliances and cooking utensils you use most often and put the remaining items away on a cabinet shelf. Not only will this save you space in the kitchen, but you'll save on cleaning time.

An Island Makes Sense For Your Indianapolis Apartment Kitchen

When counter space is needed, using an island in your kitchen may offer the extra prep area you need. Add even more convenience to your kitchen layout by getting a movable island. These popular upgrades easily double as an extra table, serving space, or they can be stored out of the way when extra floor space is required.

Save Space with a Knife Strip

One of the best space-saving apartment kitchen suggestions for your Indianapolis apartment is to replace the oversized knife block for a wall-mounted magnetic knife strip. You will find that restaurant kitchens take advantage of them for their unique function. Regardless of the length or location, a knife strip will create a contemporary feel to any kitchen. Just be careful to install it where children can’t reach!

Create More Space with a Peg Board

Wherever you need additional space, putting up a pegboard may be the perfect solution. Pegboards will support enough weight to attach pots and pans or be used to line up your favorite mugs in a playful display. A blend of hanging plants next to your most-used kitchen equipment will let you stash your tools without stowing them in cabinets. A pegboard adds functional style to any apartment kitchen in spades.

Utilize Your Sink As A Prep Surface

Sinks of all types can be used as an extra area for any need. Get a sink cover for drying plates or use it as a secondary cutting board. When you want to turn on the water, stash the top back in a nearby cabinet. You can even put down your existing cutting board lengthwise over your sink for a makeshift sink cover.

Use Backless Stools

Backless counter stools for your Indianapolis apartment kitchen bar are a fantastic way to maximize your space without sacrificing seating options or style. Simply move them under the bar when not in use.
