5 Ways To Make Your One Wall Kitchen Feel So Much Roomier
Rental kitchens are arguably one of the most commonly neglected (and frequently accepted) scourges of the apartment experience. Worse yet: the dreaded one-wall kitchen found in many an otherwise-lovely rental apartment. If you find yourself with a rental that happens to feature the saddest one-wall kitchen you’ve ever seen, don't give up hope.
