Six Effective Apartment Kitchen Ideas For Indianapolis Renters

The fact that you're leasing doesn't mean your apartment's kitchen has to be anything short of extraordinary. By using some innovative apartment kitchen ideas for your Indianapolis apartment, you can prepare your favorite dish with ease – despite the size of your space. Dazzle your friends at your next feast with your functional kitchen setup and sense of style by using just a few simple tips.

Here are six easy tips on how to transform your apartment's kitchen, no matter how big the space is or your floor plan.

Take Stock Of Your Most Regularly Used Kitchen Tools

Do you often mix meats and veggies in a crock and return from work to a tasty dinner that's perfectly cooked? Have you not plugged in your blender in the past few months? Take stock of which utensils and appliances you use most often and store the rest away in a cabinet or closet. Not only will this create more room on your counters, but you'll save on cleaning time.

An Island Makes Sense For Your Indianapolis Apartment Kitchen

When counter space is limited, using an island in your kitchen will often create the extra prep area you need. You can add more adaptability to your kitchen setup by utilizing a movable island. These smart solutions easily function as a serving station, extra table, or they can be stored out of the way when you need more floor space.

Save Space with a Knife Strip

One of the most innovative apartment kitchen tips for your Indianapolis apartment is to trade in the oversized knife block for a wall-mounted magnetic knife strip. Many professional 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 cooking space. Just pay attention and ensure you hang it out of reach of children!

Create More Space with a Peg Board

When you need more space, putting up a pegboard may be an effective solution. Pegboards will support enough weight to attach pots and pans or be used to showcase your mugs or glassware in a unique display. A combination of plants alongside your frequently-used utensils allows you to conceal your tools in plain sight. A pegboard can add both style and function to any apartment kitchen in spades.

Double Your Sink As A Prepping Area

Sinks of all types can be used as a much-needed space for any need. Get a sink cover for drying dishes or use it as a secondary cutting board. When you want to turn on the water, store the top back in a convenient space. You can even put down your current cutting board horizontally over your sink for a suitable sink cover.

Use Backless Stools

Backless counter stools for your Indianapolis apartment kitchen bar may be the perfect way to conserve valuable space without sacrificing either style or seating. Then tuck them entirely under the kitchen bar when you need more floor space.
