Hooks come in handy in many kitchens to keep utilitarian things like pots, pans, and utensils right within reach. They can also serve as a decorative element to turn your best-looking cookware and tools into part of the room’s flare.
But a blank wall is not the only place to hang hooks in your kitchen! Just about any surface will do. Try one of these overlooked places to hang hooks in your kitchen.

We’re not eager to knock ourselves out of the business of installing range hoods in rental apartments – a key piece of our workload – but there are often situations where a renter can’t get permission to knock out a vent line from the kitchen to an exterior wall. For that, we offer some good insight from our friends over at Apartment Therapy, who are usually full of good ideas.
A while ago, I wrote a post about how to ventilate a kitchen when you don’t have a range hood or vent. A number of Kitchn readers recommended installing a reversible window fan which, when put on the exhaust setting, can effectively draw smells, steam, and smoke out of your kitchen.
I don’t have a hood in my rental kitchen, and for a long time I just ran the ceiling fans in other rooms when I cooked something particularly smelly or smoky. It worked okay, but wasn’t ideal. So I decided to put a window fan in one of my kitchen windows, and now I’m so glad I did.

Lots of great ideas in here for upgrading the kitchen in your San Francisco Rental. From Kitchn:
The one thing my rental apartment kitchen has going for it is that it’s new. When the old tenants moved out, a team of contractors came and removed the ugly floors, cabinets, and countertops and replaced them with new versions — but new in no way equates to modern or cool. My kitchen looks, I imagine, about the same as many rental kitchens out there: beige and bland.
