Six Innovative Apartment Kitchen Ideas For Bloomington Renters

The fact that you're leasing doesn't mean your cooking space has to be anything short of extraordinary. With just a few innovative apartment kitchen ideas for your Bloomington apartment, you will be ready to create your favorite dish in style – regardless of the size of your cooking area. Amaze your guests at your next gathering with your impeccable use of space and fresh approach by using just a few simple tips.

Here are six easy tips on how to transform your kitchen, no matter the size of your space or your apartment floor plan.

Consider Your Most Commonly Used Kitchen Equipment

Do you like to combine ingredients in a crockpot and come home to a delicious dish that's ready to eat? Have you not used your toaster in the past few months? You should consider which cooking tools and appliances you use regularly and put the remaining items away on a cabinet shelf. Not only will this save you space, but you'll have less to put away later.

An Island Is Great For Your Bloomington Apartment Kitchen

If counter space is limited, incorporating an island into your kitchen may offer the versatility you need. You can add more adaptability to your apartment kitchen by getting an island with wheels. These handy surfaces can easily function as a serving station, extra table, or they can be stored out of the way when more room for guests is needed.

Save Space with a Knife Strip

One of the most innovative apartment kitchen suggestions for your Bloomington apartment is to ditch the clunky knife block for a magnetic, wall-attached knife strip. Many professional kitchens use them for their unique function. No matter the size or location, a knife strip will bring a distinctive touch to any cooking space. Just be careful to place it where children can’t access!

Create More Space with a Peg Board

When you need some extra space, installing a pegboard is likely to be an effective solution. Pegboards will support enough weight to hang pots and pans or be used to line up your favorite mugs in a playful display. A blend of hanging plants alongside your frequently-used utensils can allow you to conceal your tools in plain sight. A pegboard adds functional style to any apartment kitchen in spades.

Double Your Sink As A Prepping Area

Sinks of any size can be used as a much-needed space for any need. Get a sink cover for drying dishes or for use as a cutting board. When you want to turn on the water, place the top back in a storage area. You can even put down your regular cutting board horizontally on top of your sink for a suitable sink cover.

Save Space With Backless Stools

Backless stools for your Bloomington apartment kitchen bar are a fantastic way to save space without sacrificing style or much-needed seating. Simply move them under the kitchen bar when you need more floor space.
