Best Cities for Apartments With Luxe Kitchens

As the holidays draw near, many renters may be looking for a place that will make hosting a little easier. A new study from Apartment Guide examines which cities have the best selection of apartments with excellent kitchen amenities.

Apartment kitchens are notoriously skimpy, but they don't have to be.

"Stainless steel appliances, dishwashers, and microwaves are important, but extra amenities like a kitchen island and granite countertops can make a kitchen more useful and elegant," writes Steve Harper on the Apartment Guide blog. The blog also included space-saving tips to help maximize food-prep areas, such as hanging pots from the ceiling and installing wine racks under cabinets.

The site looked through its listings and found these ten metro areas had the most tricked-out kitchens:

  1. Chicago
  2. San Antonio
  3. Los Angeles
  4. Washington, D.C.
  5. New York
  6. Salt Lake City
  7. Phoenix
  8. Baltimore
  9. Seattle
  10. Dallas
