Readers always ask about the logistics of renovating a rental — in the case of Brooklyn residents Todd and Marlene Capron, The New York Times shares their story of reduced rent and a long-term lease for renovating their Prospect Heights 2 bedroom apartment.

The couple (both involved in aspects of the interior design world) used a combination of modified IKEA products and high end furnishings and finishes to complete the look. They used high end bathroom tiles and a fair amount of carefully selected Jonathan Adler furniture and accessories.
