DC-0000363252 ticularly heinous, it might b e worth the effort and expense. Chances are your landlord isn’t keen on the look of it either and will be pleased if you rep lace it with something more current, so long as i t’s timeless and versatile. He or she may even reimburse you. 6 . REFINISHING DATED TILE Unless you’re skilled at i nstalling tile, I wouldn’t recommend replacing the tile in your rental unit, as labor and materials can get costly. However, if y our bathroom or kitchen is blessed with some truly dated colored tile, you can p urchase a tub and tile refinishing kit or spray paint for $20 to $50 to give it a bright-white makeover. There’s even spray for appliances on the mar- k et, if you have, say, a b rown ’70s-era oven or hood. 7. SWAPPING OUT HARDWARE Ilike to say that hard- w are is the jewelry of y our home. It’s amazing what some shiny new drawer pulls and cabinet knobs can do — it’s like an instant makeover! T hough they can get expensive if you have a big k itchen with lots of doors and drawers, the great thing is that you can take t hem with you when you leave! Most cabinet hardware is standard, so you c an reuse them in your next home. Since all they require to install is a simple screwdriver, you can easily tackle this renova- t ion yourself, and if you replace the original hardware before you move o ut, your landlord won’t know the difference! 8. REPLACING YOUR BATHROOM MIRROR If your bathroom medicine cabinet is not built i nto the wall, replacing it w ith something more statement-making, or even something simple that doesn’t looked contractor-grade, can make a r eally impact. It’s as easy a s unscrewing it, storing it for moving day, and then hanging something prettier. 9. PAINTING YOUR K ITCHEN CABINETS If your kitchen cab- i nets are really dated — say, a mustard tone or that ubiquitous midcentury m edium-tone wood — and it’s unequivocally clear they have passed their p rime, your landlord may not mind you painting them. That is, so long as you do a good job painting. Be sure to complete re- m ove the cabinet doors and hardware before you paint, let them dry, and t hen reinstall them. Don’t choose any crazy colors — go with something classic and versatile like black, white or gray. Tips Continued from Page 20G
