Six Smart Apartment Kitchen Ideas For Broad Ripple Renters

The fact that you're only renting a space doesn't mean your apartment's kitchen has to be anything short of gourmet. By using some innovative apartment kitchen ideas for your Broad Ripple apartment, you will be ready to serve up any meal in style – despite the size of your space. Dazzle your guests at your next dinner party with your intelligent kitchen design and unique style by using these simple tips.

Here are six easy tips on how to transform your kitchen area, no matter how ample your space is or your floor plan.

Take Note of Your Most Regularly Used Kitchen Equipment

Do you love to throw some ingredients in a crockpot and return from work to a fresh meal that's hot and ready? Have you not turned on the air fryer in several weeks? You should consider which cooking tools and appliances you use regularly and put the remaining items away in a cabinet or closet. Not only will this open up space in the kitchen, but you'll save on cleaning time.

An Island Is Great For Your Broad Ripple Apartment Kitchen

When counter space is limited, incorporating an island into your kitchen will offer the versatility you need. Bring even more flexibility to your apartment kitchen by purchasing an island with wheels. These smart solutions can easily double as an extra table, serving space, or they can be rolled out of the way when you need more floor space.

Save Space with a Knife Strip

One of the smartest apartment kitchen ideas for your Broad Ripple apartment is to replace the bulky knife block for a clever, wall-hung knife strip. You will find that commercial kitchens use them for their ability to save counter space. No matter the size or location, a knife strip will bring a distinctive touch to your kitchen. Just pay attention and ensure you hang it where children can’t access!

Create More Space with a Peg Board

When you need additional space, hanging a pegboard may be the perfect solution. Pegboards can support enough weight to attach cookware or be used to line up your favorite mugs in a fun display. A mix of suspended plants next to your frequently-used cooking instruments will let you stash your tools in plain sight. A pegboard offers functional style to any apartment kitchen in a distinct manner.

Use Your Sink As A Prepping Area

Sinks of any size can be used as a much-needed space for any need. Consider a sink cover for drying dishes or use as a prep station. When you want to turn on the water, stash the top back in a nearby cabinet. You can even put down your regular cutting board horizontally on top of your sink for an instant sink cover.

Consider Using Backless Stools

Backless stools for your Broad Ripple apartment kitchen bar are a smart way to conserve valuable space without sacrificing either style or seating. Then tuck them underneath the bar counter when they aren’t needed.
