Easy Upgrades for Your Rental Kitchen

Austin Apartment Specialists Card

Renters may not be able to make permanent changes to their kitchen, but there are lots of little things you can do to make life in a small kitchen easier.  Read on for Dwell's suggestions on making the most out of your kitchen using temporary solutions.

A kitchen island or cart on wheels provides extra counter space and extra storage.  Plus, when it's not needed, it can be moved out of the way.  

Does your #apartment have terrible counters you'd rather not look at?  Invest in a beautiful wooden cutting board that will make you feel better about your kitchen and can be taken with you when your lease is up.

A hanging pot rack is a great way to get more storage space out of your kitchen and it's attractive.  Pegboard is another way to get a fit a lot more into your kitchen.  If you have to leave the inexpensive pegboard behind, you can definitely take the hooks with your to your next abode.

Cooking tools that last and can be used for multiple purposes are a great way to save space in the kitchen.  A cast iron skillet can go from stove top to oven and can be used for just about anything.  They also last forever if properly cared for.

A dutch oven is another great addition to your kitchen that can serve a lot of different purposes.  Plus if you get one that color-coordinates with your kitchen, you can keep it out on the stove top as a decoration.

Looking to cover an ugly backsplash?  Self-adhesive, removable wall coverings are a great way to temporary disguise an unattractive backsplash.
