Sometimes a renters kitchen may have some undesirable features, like less than exciting looks, and negligible storage.
A way to combat both of these negatives at once is to acquire a butcher’s Block. They look fabulous (crucial), they’re easy to move and they have tons of options for storage. Often with open shelving and some have cute drawers or closed cupboards. They’re really practical and they have many styles and uses; bar trolleys, extra bench space, or even bench space in the garage.
Another similar solution may be to take the garage to the kitchen and infuse your home with a more industrial style by grabbing a workbench from a hardware shop.
