Many of the writers and editors at Apartment Therapy are renters. Consequently, we understand the hesitancy of drilling holes into walls or even repainting walls for fear of losing a security deposit. But we don’t let those limitations stop us from enjoying — or personalizing — our homes. Quite the opposite! We actually enjoy searching out renter-friendly tools that help you make the most of your home.
It might sound counterintuitive, but sometimes the best way to deal with too much stuff is to buy more stuff. We’re specifically talking about organizers and storage solutions, which can create space out of thin air for your excess belongings and help declutter cabinets, counters, and other surfaces.

There’s no doubt that a sweeping renovation can transform the look of your space. Of course, if you don’t want to take on such a big task, there are still small changes you can implement that’ll also make a noticeable, positive impact. The bathroom lends itself especially well to such changes, whether that entails upgrading to nicer hand soap, swapping out your dowdy trash bin for something sleeker, or hiding products with tacky packaging.
