Six Smart Apartment Kitchen Ideas For Bloomington Renters

Just because you're only renting a space doesn't mean your kitchen has to be anything short of extraordinary. With just a few innovative apartment kitchen ideas for your Bloomington apartment, you can serve up a delicious dinner with style – despite the size of your kitchen. Impress your guests at your next gathering with your impeccable use of space and unique style by using these simple tips.

Keep reading to find six easy tips on how to freshen up your apartment's kitchen, no matter the size of your space or your apartment layout.

Consider Your Most Commonly Used Kitchen Appliances And Utensils

Do you like to combine ingredients in a crock and come home to a fresh meal that's ready to eat? Have you not used the air fryer in over a month? You should consider which appliances and cooking utensils you use regularly and store the rest away on a cabinet shelf. Not only will this save you space, but you'll save on cleaning time.

An Island Makes Sense For Your Bloomington Apartment Kitchen

When counter space is limited, using an island in your kitchen will often create the versatility you need. Add even more convenience to your kitchen layout by utilizing an island with wheels. These smart solutions will function as an extra table, serving space, or they can be rolled out of the way when extra floor space is required.

Hang Your Knives

One of the most innovative apartment kitchen tips for your Bloomington apartment is to replace the oversized knife block for a magnetic, wall-attached knife strip. Most commercial kitchens take advantage of them for their unique function. Regardless of the size or location, a knife strip will create a contemporary feel to any kitchen. Just be careful to hang it where children can’t access!

Create More Space with a Peg Board

When you need some extra space, putting up a pegboard may be the perfect solution. Pegboards can support enough weight to hang cookware or be used to line up your favorite mugs in a fun display. A combination of suspended plants in company with your commonly-used kitchen equipment can allow you to hide your tools in plain sight. A pegboard can add both style and function to any apartment kitchen in a distinct manner.

Use Your Sink As A Prepping Area

Sinks of all types can be used as a handy surface for any job. Consider a sink cover for drying dishes or use as a prep station. When you need to use the sink, stash the top back in a convenient space. You can even put down your existing cutting board lengthwise on top of your sink for a makeshift sink cover.

Consider Using Backless Stools

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