Weigh In on Apartment Amenities: What’s Worth It and What’s Overrated?

Apartment hunting is a demonstration of sheer will. The victors will be the ones who have done their research, visiting maybe a dozen or more potential homes before deciding on “the one.” They’ve examined the available amenities with a critical eye, deciding for themselves that, no, they’ll never use the gym or the pool, so they’re just not worth paying for.

Certain landlords, and almost all dorms, have strict rules against painting the walls, which is a major bummer if you love color. So imagine my excitement when I learned about removable, paintable wallpaper — I shouted “hallelujah” and quickly ordered some to find out if it was the answer to all our rental wishes and dreams.

10 Ways to Fall in Love with the Home You Live In Right Now

Most of us have complicated relationships with the places where we live. Unless you have unlimited amounts of money, there’s probably something about your home that you don’t like. Maybe you don’t like the place where you live much at all, and are stuck there because of circumstances or budget. But even if you can’t move, or can’t remodel, or can’t even paint (we see you, renters), there are things you can do to make the home that you live in right now a place that you’ll love.

This Item is the Biggest Lifesaver in My Tiny Kitchen

When I started my hunt for the perfect tiny New York apartment, I knew that it would probably come with a tiny kitchen, too. I got lucky: my kitchen actually has a full-sized fridge, and it even has an oven. (Yes, there are people in New York who are paying lots and lots of money to rent apartments with no oven.) And while my kitchen is small—it only has two and a half feet of counter space—I saw others that were even smaller. On top of all that, I’ve managed to significantly enhance the countertop and storage space in my kitchen with one simple addition: a kitchen cart.

This Rental Bathroom Floor Came From a Surprising Source

When bathroom floors are bad, they’re usually really, really bad. As a renter, you can try to cover as much as possible with a rug or bath mat, but textiles usually aren’t enough to get the entire ugly, dingy floor fully out of your mind. Which is why affordable, temporary flooring is so welcome: it’s a pain-free, low risk way to upgrade your bathroom without worry.

Can We Make Over This Rental Bathroom for Less than $500? — Apartment Therapy Original Makeover

Erika’s young and doesn’t spend an arm and a leg on rent. Sure, her bathroom is functional, but all those shades of off-white are a style travesty that could make even the most stalwart of tenants cry beige tears. It’s a rental, so nobody wants to go nuts and spend a lot of money to renovate it, but Erika wanted something a little more fun and befitting her age. So, the goal is to give her an entirely new, bright, amazing bathroom for $500. Think we can do it?
