“5 Things I Never Did to a Rental But Probably Should Have”

“5 Things I Never Did to a Rental But Probably Should Have” — Renters Solutions | Apartment Therapy

Quite often when we talk about the upgrades you can make to a rental apartment or home, I am the first to look at the list and balk, saying to myself that none of it is worth the effort. When the time comes to actually move out of your home, no one really wants any additional work, but with a little extra organization and coordination, I’ve come to realize that I could have had the home I wanted, instead of the home I was trying make feel like me without big impact ideas.

AT Idea Generator : DIY Entryway Organizer

From Apartment Therapy:

As renters, we take what we can get, and what we often get are miniscule (or non-existent) entryways and a lack of built-in storage. This multi-faceted organizer has a variety of ways to hang your stuff — coats, bags, and umbrellas — so they are at your fingertips as you head out the door, and stay tidy when you come back in. As a neat bonus, it also has a magnetized area for keys. You can learn how to make one yourself, right after the jump!

RUSSIAN HILL HANDYMAN Co. | Apartment Therapy

Don’t misunderstand us; we didn’t work for this customer. We’re just really big fans of her own handiness and/or the work of her Handyman. Hopefully, she’ll trackback to us once we’ve posted this link and use us for future painting and installation work — and let’s get that television off the table and onto the wall!

Throughout the week, we’ll post links to Apartment Therapy House Tours or Scavenger Sales or any other ideas we find online that we think might be of interest to our customers, particularly for renters who want to make minor adjustments to their home, but haven’t thought about all of the other things we can do while we’re there — particularly with new faucets, shower handles and light fixtures that can turn a rental into a home, tout-de-suite!

Kudos, Kirstyn — your home is an inspiration to us!
