New Apartment Wish List

After a slightly annoying email exchange yesterday with the realty company that now owns my apartment building, I started thinking daydreaming about a new apartment.

Believe it or not, but I've lived in this apartment, that I don't even like that much, for 2.5 years! I've never lived in another apartment for longer than a year, so this seems so crazy to me. Especially since this isn't my dream apartment or anything. I actually kind of hate a lot of things about it. Which leads me into my post for today. I've put together a little "wish-list" of things I will be looking at when I begin looking for a new apartment.

1. A Dishwasher

Dishes happen to be the one household chore that I absolutely hate the absolute most. Which is hilarious, since I've lived in an apartment for almost 3 years without a dishwasher. I am the dishwasher. I really need my next apartment to have a dishwasher.

2. Bathtub

My current shower situation is one of the worst things about this apartment. My shower is the size of a small hallway closet. It's a "shower stall" and it's the worst. Shaving my legs in this shower? Don't even get me started. Also, my apartment before this one had a lovely bathtub, so I took baths pretty regularly and began to fall in love with them. Which was unfortunate, since for the last 2.5 years I haven't gotten to enjoy one. I was gifted one of those Lush Bath Bombs a while back, but of course, I can't use it. My next apartment needs to have a bigger shower and make it one of those bathtub/shower combos. Thanks.

3. Washer & Dryer

Another huge downer of my apartment is the lack of a way to do laundry. I have to take my laundry to either a laundry mat or my parents' house. This tends to mean that my laundry builds up quickly, because it is definitely not convenient to have to lug my laundry around to different places to do it. I will say, my mom volunteers to help with my laundry quite a bit, so I shouldn't complain too much. However, my next apartment needs to have a washer and dryer of its own.

4. No Wood Paneling
None. Not one single trace of wood paneling. I didn't use to have strong feelings on this until I lived in my current apartment. Which is like a dark, wood paneled cave. I really hate it. I just really do.

So when I begin my search for a new apartment I'm going to need to narrow down the search parameters by the above. I just really need these things guys. Especially the lack of wood paneling. I need that like you wouldn't believe.


  1. I could totally go for a washer and dryer in my apartment- I would be happy even if was in my building! And a dishwasher would be nice too...

  2. I never felt like more of an adult until I got my own washer and dryer (also read: My parents washer and dryer because they got new ones) But you wanna know something..... I still don't do laundry on a regular basis. IT'S JUST SO TEDIOUS AND TIME CONSUMING.

  3. ugh I have one of those shower stalls too! not only is shaving hard, but I manage to knock every. single. thing. down. when I take a shower, it always sounds like the sky is falling.

  4. A dishwasher & a bathtub are HUGE musts for me. I would love to have a nice claw foot tub, the house I grew up in had one & I loved it! Someday, someday. :)

  5. ha! A washer/dryer was on my list of must-have's for my past three apartments, ever since I experienced the obnoxiousness that is hauling clothes to a laundromat. Having this in-house is SUCH a game changer! Also: I have never seen a dishwasher with a top slot for silver wear, but that's amazing! Can I get one of those please!?

  6. You don't have a dishwasher bathtub or washer and dryer?!? Where do you live?? Nyc???!?


I love you people! Let's be friends.
