3 Features Cooks Should Seek in an Apartment Rental, Ashland, Kentucky

Looking for a new apartment rental can be challenging for many reasons, and for home chefs, the prospect is even more daunting. Tiny counters, cramped cabinets, malfunctioning stoves: The list of kitchen nightmares goes on and on. To help you find an ideal workspace where you can perfect your latest recipes, here are a few factors that make a kitchen stand out.

What Avid Cooks Should Look for in an Apartment Kitchen

1. Fully Furnished

Moving into a new apartment rental is a lot of work, and having to furnish a kitchen can make the process even more difficult. Search for a place that supplies a refrigerator, stovetop, oven, microwave, and storage space. Otherwise, you could find yourself putting a pinch on your budget as you buy new kitchen gear.

2. Large Counters

You’ll need ample room to chop ingredients, place dishes before they’re served, and stash dirty pots and pans until it’s time to clean them. More counter space also means it’s easier to let guests or housemates help with the cooking without having them get in the way.

3. A Neat Working Triangle

The three features you’ll be using most in your new kitchen are the sink, refrigerator, and stove. If they’re awkwardly placed or far apart, you could find yourself wasting time or bumping into objects as you maneuver around the kitchen. As you tour prospective apartments, go through the motions of cooking. If you notice that the workflow feels cramped or awkward, look elsewhere.
