We all get that itch to redo part of our home, but if you’re renting, you can’t do anything too permament. Home improvement blog Apartment Therapy has some tips for customising your bathroom without angering your landlord.
One of the best tips they give is to update your fixtures. If your bathroom has a toilet seat, shower head, or other fixture that isn’t of very high quality (or is just plain ugly), you can usually replace them pretty easily. Some landlords will even deduct the cost from your rent or split the difference with you (though Apartment Therapy notes that there are some pretty cheap ways to upgrade fixtures if you have to pay it yourself). Plus, some things, like certain shower heads, can be screwed on and off easily, so if your landlord is particularly strict, you can put the old one back when you leave (and take your fancy new one with you). Check out the full post for 9 other ways to customise a rental bathroom, including covering up ugly tiles and making ugly light fixtures more attractive.
