The fact that you're only renting a space doesn't mean your kitchen has to be anything short of gourmet. By using some innovative apartment kitchen ideas for your Sylvania apartment, you can prepare a delicious dinner with ease – regardless of the size of your kitchen. Dazzle your guests at your next dinner party with your intelligent kitchen design and fresh approach by using these simple suggestions.

Explore six easy tips on how to start spicing up your kitchen area, no matter how big the space is or your apartment layout.


Consider Your Most Commonly Used Kitchen Tools

Do you like to combine ingredients in a crockpot and come home to a fresh meal that's ready to eat? Have you not used your toaster in over a month? Think about which appliances and cooking utensils you use regularly and store the rest away on a cabinet shelf. Not only will this create more room on your counters, but you'll have less to put away later.


An Island Is Great For Your Sylvania Apartment Kitchen

If counter space is needed, adding an island to your kitchen will offer the extra prep area you need. Bring even more flexibility to your kitchen layout by utilizing an island with wheels. These handy surfaces can easily double as an extra table, serving space, 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 smartest apartment kitchen tips for your Sylvania apartment is to replace the oversized knife block for a wall-mounted magnetic knife strip. You will find that professional kitchens use them for their ability to save counter space. Regardless of the size or location, a knife strip will add a modern flair to any kitchen. Just be careful to place it out of reach of children!


Free Up Space with a Peg Board

Wherever you need some extra space, hanging a pegboard may be an ideal solution. Pegboards can support enough weight to hold cookware or be used to line up your favorite mugs in a unique display. A mix of suspended plants in company with your commonly-used cooking instruments will let you hide your tools without stowing them in cabinets. A pegboard can add both style and function to any apartment kitchen in spades.


Double Your Sink As A Cutting Area

Sinks of any size can double as a much-needed space for any purpose. Get a sink cover for drying dishes or use as a prep station. When you want to turn on the water, store the top back in a storage area. You can even place your regular cutting board lengthwise over the top of your sink for a suitable sink cover.

Use Backless Stools
