Renting your very own apartment comes with a number of perks, including not having to worry about regular maintenance or upkeep of your home as well as access to a unique amenities. As plentiful as the benefits of apartments may be, sometimes we feel limited by our kitchen space. The good news is, there are a few ways to streamline your cooking process and get away from the limitations of a small kitchen.
One mistake some apartment renters make while cooking is trying to put all the cleaning off until they’re done eating or even the next day. This can lead to drastically reduced amounts of countertop space for you to prep in and it’s easy to let the problem get out of control. However, it may be more efficient to clean while you go: if you’re waiting for something to simmer, clean your cutting board while you wait. If you dirty up a bowl and then need another one, clean the first one and reuse it. This can leave you with less dishes in the end and is a much more efficient use of your time.
Keeping Space Clear and Usable
If you take the time beforehand to clean your kitchen and organize all of your utensils and cookware, you’ll notice how much easier it is to get things done in your apartment kitchen. If you have a spot for everything in your kitchen, it leaves your countertops and tables wide open for use during cooking. Set yourself up for a stress free experience beforehand by being as organized as you possibly can.
A few times a year, you should go through your kitchen and get rid of everything you don’t need. If you have extra supplies that you find yourself not using, see if any friends or family members want it, donate it, or trash it if it isn’t usable. Adding more space to your kitchen is key in making it a much more efficient space.
