Location: Logan Square – Chicago, Illinois
I moved to Chicago from Los Angeles earlier this year and found a teensy apartment in my favorite neighborhood, a block from the center. I’m a baker professionally and use my home kitchen for recipe testing, so it took me a while to figure out how to utilize the narrow, poorly lit space. I decided to mount a shelf along the wall as a bar table and found some rad wooden step-ladders to mount underneath and use as chairs when needed. It totally saves on space and turned out really well considering I had never installed shelves before! I also invested in a steel food cart to up my counter space and use as a prep table. Now it’s my favorite room and I constantly try to bribe people with baked goods so they will come over and admire it!
