This Former Foster Kid Deserved a Supportive Space to Come Home To. We Gave It To Her — Apartment Therapy Original Makeover

We are pretty big on homes here at Apartment Therapy, and nothing makes us more excited than helping people create happy and beautiful spaces that support them and their goals. Around the holidays, it feels especially poignant so, when we recently heard of one young woman whose apartment needed a little care and kindness, we jumped at the chance to help.

I Remodeled My Bathroom in A Weekend — Apartment Therapy Original Makeover

About a month ago, I decided I was really sick of my bathroom. This came in the context of larger BIG LIFE UPHEAVAL, which I won’t get into now, but it boiled down to craving a tangible change in my living space. I quickly focused on my downstairs bathroom, which was admittedly not horrible, but was feeling extremely drab and depressing lately. In short, it wasn’t making me happy. So, I oh so casually said to myself, as only a Projects Editor for Apartment Therapy will do, why don’t I remodel it next weekend?

$300 Later, This Rental Kitchen Is No Longer Recognizable

This is what Tara’s kitchen looked like when she moved in this past year. Not too pretty, eh? With her landlord’s approval, we did a light reno that didn’t cost a lot, but made a major difference in both appearance and function. Spending money on a rental isn’t for everyone — but for those of you who love to cook, have a horrible kitchen, and plan to stay put for awhile, then a little investment may well be worth the time and expense.

The “Mountain Mural” Bedroom Makeover

Makeover by: Pam Lostracco, owner of Pam Lostracco Custom Designed Murals
Location: Toronto, Canada

Last spring, I started envisioning how my artwork would look at a larger size. The mountain design I created for a calendar was doing really well, so I decided to start my first large piece by transferring the mountains onto my bedroom wall. Not only did it transform the atmosphere in the whole room but my entire business plan, too! I felt entirely in my element throughout the whole process which has resulted in my new mural business.

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.

A Hard-Core IKEA Hack for a Rental Bathroom Makeover — Apartment Therapy Original Makeover

IKEA’s IVAR collection is a very versatile system, with different ways to configure storage, and made of unfinished wood that’s a virtual blank slate for paint. But, in a recent makeover project, the big question became: could it become the centerpiece of an inexpensive rental bathroom makeover?

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?
