Six Smart Apartment Kitchen Ideas For Carmel Renters

The fact that you're only renting a space doesn't mean your apartment's kitchen has to be anything short of extraordinary. With just a few innovative apartment kitchen ideas for your Carmel apartment, you will be able to serve up a delicious dinner with ease – no matter the size of your space. Impress your guests at your next gathering with your intelligent kitchen design and sense of style by using these simple tips.

Explore six easy ideas on how to freshen up your kitchen area, no matter how big the space is or your apartment floor plan.

Take Note of Your Most Commonly Used Kitchen Appliances And Utensils

Do you love to throw some ingredients in a slow-cooker and arrive home to a delicious dish that's hot and ready? Have you not used your toaster in over a month? Take stock of which cooking tools and appliances you use regularly and store the rest away in a cabinet or closet. Not only will this open up space in the kitchen, but you'll have less to put away later.

Consider An Island For Your Carmel Apartment Kitchen

When counter space is at a premium, incorporating an island into your kitchen will often create the extra prep area you need. You can add more convenience to your kitchen setup by utilizing an island with wheels. These smart solutions will function as a serving station, extra table, or they can be stored out of the way when more room for guests is needed.

Move Knives to the Wall

One of the best space-saving apartment kitchen tips for your Carmel apartment is to ditch the clunky knife block for a clever, wall-hung knife strip. You will find that professional kitchens use them for their ability to save counter space. Regardless of the length or location, a knife strip will create a contemporary feel to your kitchen. Just pay attention and ensure you place it where children can’t reach!

Add A Peg Board To Free Up Space

Wherever you need additional space, putting up a pegboard may be an ideal solution. Pegboards will support enough weight to hold heavier pans or be used to showcase your mugs or glassware in a fun display. A mix of suspended plants alongside your commonly-used cooking instruments will let you hide your tools in plain sight. A pegboard adds both style and function to any apartment kitchen in spades.

Double Your Sink As A Cutting Area

Any size sink can double as a much-needed space for any job. You can buy a sink cover for drying plates or for use as a cutting board. When you need your sink back, stash the top back in a nearby cabinet. You can even put down your current cutting board lengthwise on top of your sink for a suitable sink cover.

Save Space With Backless Stools

Convenient backless counter stools for your Carmel apartment kitchen bar may be the perfect way to save space without sacrificing style or much-needed seating. Then tuck them underneath the bar counter when you need more floor space.
