Six Innovative Apartment Kitchen Ideas For Bloomington Renters

You deserve better. Just because you're leasing doesn't mean your cooking space has to be anything short of extraordinary. With a few smart apartment kitchen ideas for your Bloomington apartment, you will be ready to serve up your favorite dish with ease – despite the size of your kitchen. Dazzle your guests at your next feast with your impeccable use of space and sense of style by using these simple tips.

Explore six easy ideas on how to start spicing up your kitchen, no matter how ample your space is or your floor plan.

Take Note of Your Most Frequently Used Kitchen Equipment

Do you often mix meats and veggies in a crockpot and arrive home to a tasty dinner that's hot and ready? Have you not used your blender in several weeks? Take stock of which appliances and cooking utensils you use most and put the remaining items away on a cabinet shelf. Not only will this open up space, but you'll save time when cleaning.

An Island Is Great For Your Bloomington Apartment Kitchen

If counter space is at a premium, incorporating an island into your kitchen will often create the versatility you need. You can add more convenience to your kitchen layout by purchasing a movable island. These smart solutions will double as a secondary table, staging area, or they can be moved away when extra floor space is required.

Hang Your Knives

One of the smartest apartment kitchen ideas for your Bloomington apartment is to ditch the clunky knife block for a clever, wall-hung knife strip. You will find that professional 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 pay attention and ensure you install it where children can’t reach!

Free Up Space with a Peg Board

When you need some extra space, hanging a pegboard is likely to be an ideal solution. Pegboards can support enough weight to attach heavier pans or be used to line up your favorite mugs in a fun display. A combination of suspended plants in company with your frequently-used kitchen equipment allows you to conceal your tools in a clever way. A pegboard adds both style and function to any apartment kitchen in a distinct manner.

Double Your Sink As A Prep Surface

Sinks of all types can be used as a handy surface for any need. Consider a sink cover for drying plates or for use as a cutting board. When you need your sink back, place the top back in a convenient space. You can even situate your regular cutting board horizontally over your sink for an instant sink cover.

Consider Using Backless Stools

Backless stools for your Bloomington apartment kitchen bar are a fantastic way to save space without sacrificing either style or seating. Simply move them under the bar counter when not in use.
