September 14, 2020

Kitchen in a Indianapolis apartment

The fact that you're only renting a space doesn't mean your apartment's kitchen has to be anything short of extraordinary. With a few smart apartment kitchen ideas for your Indianapolis apartment, you can serve up your favorite dish in style – regardless of the size of your kitchen. Amaze your guests at your next gathering with your impeccable use of space and sense of style by using just a few simple tips.

Here are six easy tips on how to freshen up your apartment's kitchen, no matter how big the space is or your apartment layout.


Take Note of Your Most Frequently Used Kitchen Tools

Do you like to combine ingredients in a crockpot and come home to a delicious dish that's hot and ready? Have you not plugged in the air fryer in over a month? Take stock of which appliances and cooking utensils you use most often and put the remaining items away in a cabinet or closet. Not only will this save you space in the kitchen, but you'll save time when cleaning.


Consider An Island For Your Indianapolis Apartment Kitchen

If counter space is limited, using an island in your kitchen may offer the versatility you need. Add even more convenience to your kitchen setup by utilizing a rolling island. These handy surfaces easily double as an extra table, serving space, or they can be rolled out of the way when extra floor space is required.


Save Space with a Knife Strip

One of the smartest apartment kitchen ideas for your Indianapolis apartment is to replace the oversized knife block for a magnetic, wall-attached knife strip. Many restaurant 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 any cooking space. Just be careful to install it out of reach of children!


Free Up Space with a Peg Board

When you need more space, hanging a pegboard is likely to 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 playful display. A blend of plants alongside your frequently-used cooking instruments can allow you to hide your tools in a clever way. A pegboard adds functionality and appeal to any apartment kitchen in spades.


Double Your Sink As A Cutting Area

Sinks of any size can be used as a much-needed space for any purpose. Get a sink cover for stacking plates or use as a prep station. When you need to use the sink, store the top back in a nearby cabinet. You can even put down your regular cutting board lengthwise over the top of your sink for an instant sink cover.

Consider Using Backless Stools

Convenient backless counter stools for your Indianapolis apartment kitchen bar are a smart way to conserve valuable space without sacrificing seating options or style. Gently slide them entirely under the bar when not in use.
