1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Apartment Kitchen- Help me redecorate on: February 17, 2013 03:40:30 AM
Its a rental, so *I* can't change the cabinets, but they are going to replace them, and the floor hopefully this year. *hoping*

I like the  "soda pop" furniture idea, except going with a high bar stool type chair is bad for dad {can't move well}, and me {i'm short] lol.

So far i did get one of those 5 foot white folding tables, and a brown pyrex bowl that currently holds apples.

I did think about the vintage canisters, I like the idea.

Vinyl wall art... I love that idea. *off to search*

Thanks for the ideas everyone. I'll update when i get some decorating done.

Dad thought about putting a small breakfast nook in the corner.
Which would give us seating but no storage or 'counter' space.

I just had the idea of possibly using short bookcases from Walmart for my shelving.
Those would be a near perfect size I think to hold appliances.

Here's some ideas I've come up with so far


This is a rough layout of possible cabinet units I could make.
I'd most likely do them in 3-4 sections to make moving them easy.
It would solve storage of appliances and possibly some pots and pans.


This is a complete overhead layout of kitchen and backroom; except for cabinets above sink and fridge. With a layout of possible storage and table units.


These are layouts of other options like using plastic drawers with wood on top instead of a wooden 'bookcase' like units.

*I'm working with a space roughly 7' by 7'.

I did some major extreme spring cleaning by taking out all furniture etc in my kitchen (food is still there).

I plan to redecorate {rental unit so no painting etc}.
They are going to put in new floors and cupboards within the next 5 or so years.
The floors will be a dark walnut like, and the cupboards nearly the same dark wood.

What I'd like to accomplish:
*more storage- mostly for appliances
*a small place to seat 2 people
*colors would be bright pastel like, in my mind 50's nostalgic like 'The Wonder Years'

Here's photos....













So my question to all of you is how would you set it up?
I need some Ideas, layouts, links to possible furniture, etc
Any help is appreciated.

Very nice! Its a jean pencil skirt!

I agree on having a zipper. I don't like wearing pencil skirts, because I hate having to walk like Morticia from the Addams Family, lol.

This skirt could easily be adapted to an A-line version, I bet.

I so need more jeans in my hoarded collection- I'm saving squares (4x6) to make a jean blanket.
