Apartment Therapy can really get you thinking along the right track. As renters, we spend lots of money on rent, but we sometimes forget that it’s also OK to spend some money on small improvements to the apartment that will make a difference in our comfort and extend the usefulness of a small apartment.
One case in point is the towel rack improvement shown in this image. It’s a $20 rack from Ikea that makes a tiny bathroom work just a little better than a tiny bathroom with the old, traditional single bar type rack.
Another example are easily replaced shower heads. Through the standard, landlord-issued shower head away and get one that can increase the water flow pressure or convert your shower into a shower of fine water jets.
