Apartments provide great options of affordable living for city dwellers. However, for the city dweller who loves to cook, you’ll have to look a little harder. Many small apartments have the bare bones when it comes to the kitchen. You might not even have real counter space. So it’s easy to wonder how on earth you can have the room for storage and kitchen decor. If that’s where you are right now, it’s time to think out of the box. There are lots of kitchen storage options that serve their purpose in a stylish way. Check out these 15 pretty storage pieces that will double as storage and decor in your tiny apartment kitchen.
