Just because you're renting doesn't mean your apartment's kitchen has to be anything short of extraordinary. By using some innovative apartment kitchen ideas for your Lafayette apartment, you will be ready to prepare a delicious dinner with style – regardless of the size of your cooking area. Impress your visitors at your next feast with your functional kitchen setup and fresh approach by using these simple tips.

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


Consider Your Most Frequently Used Kitchen Equipment

Do you often mix meats and veggies in a crockpot and return from work to a tasty dinner that's ready to eat? Have you not turned on your blender in the past few months? Think about which appliances and cooking utensils you use most and put the remaining items away on a cabinet shelf. Not only will this save you space, but you'll save on cleaning time.


Consider An Island For Your Lafayette Apartment Kitchen

If counter space is at a premium, using an island in your kitchen will often create the extra prep area you need. Bring even more convenience to your apartment kitchen by getting an island with wheels. These smart solutions will double as a serving station, extra table, or they can be rolled out of the way when extra floor space is required.


Move Knives to the Wall

One of the smartest apartment kitchen ideas for your Lafayette apartment is to replace the clunky knife block for a clever, wall-hung knife strip. Most professional kitchens use them for their unique function. Regardless of the shape or placement, a knife strip will bring a distinctive touch to any kitchen. Just make sure that you place it out of reach of children!


Create More Space with a Peg Board

Wherever you need more space, putting up a pegboard can be an effective solution. Pegboards can support enough weight to attach cookware or be used to line up your favorite mugs in a fun display. A combination of plants alongside your most-used kitchen equipment allows you to conceal your tools in a clever way. A pegboard can add functionality and appeal to any apartment kitchen in a distinct manner.


Double Your Sink As A Prep Surface

Any size sink can double as a much-needed space for any purpose. Get 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 convenient space. You can even put down your current cutting board lengthwise over your sink for a suitable sink cover.

Consider Using Backless Stools

Convenient backless counter stools for your Lafayette apartment kitchen bar may be the perfect way to save space without sacrificing seating options or style. Gently slide them under the bar when you need more floor space.
