Are you thinking about making a big change? You love your home, but are tired of cringing at your outdated bathroom. Or perhaps you've been dreaming of making over your barely-functional kitchen for years and are finally ready to take the plunge. If you have big dreams, Apartment Therapy wants to partner with you to help make those dreams happen with our Renovation Diary Program.
Here's how it works: you tell us about your plans to renovate through our form. If you are selected, Apartment Therapy will help you out by providing one item on your source list — maybe that dishwasher you've been longing for, or the tile of your dreams. As part of the partnership, you agree to update the Apartment Therapy community weekly on the progress of your remodel. We're looking for your real-life, in-the-trenches experience — sourcing materials, working with contractors (or DIYing), making last-minute decisions. Through your participation in the Renovation Diary Program, you can get advice from other folks in the Apartment Therapy community, as well as inspiring readers in their own projects.
No matter where you live — in a tiny condo in the big city, or in a house in a small town — we want to hear from you. The ideal candidate will:
- Be remodeling any single room in their house.
- Have already spoken with an architect or contractor to get an idea of the budget and the scope of the work.
- Be a talented writer and photographer (since we want you to be able to share as much of your experience as possible with the Apartment Therapy community).
What You Do:
We want to hear all about what you have in mind, want to see before pics as well as your inspiration boards and project plans. All you have to do is fill out the form below (photo quality and writing skills count!) and the editors will be in touch if we have any questions or need more info.
What We Do:
Apartment Therapy will support project participants from $500 – $2000, depending on the scope of the project and what your needs are.
Submissions are open now! We'll be reviewing and selecting Renovation Diary project partners on a rolling basis and can't wait to start sharing YOUR projects, with the Apartment Therapy community cheering the brave, intrepid renovators on, every step of the way.
