Life at the top The penthouse. While rental living isn’t always considered glamourous, the penthouse has always had a special cachet. There is prestige in living in the penthouse, an air of luxury – that you’re living lofty as a renter. Penthouse suites are often bigger, with spectacular views. Some buildings utilize the penthouse level like mansions in the sky. They may even have restricted elevator access. There’s nobody above, so no concerns about shade on their balcony and no noisy neighbours footsteps to hear. Some buildings even embrace the idea of Penthouse I and Penthouse II. Two floors. A sub penthouse. These buildings reserve the top two floors, referring to two penthouse levels. It creates additional suites with that exclusivity of the penthouse cachet. Rental living isn’t always considered prestigious, but today’s rental market

is certainly growing up – penthouses and beyond. Real estate prices are continuing to escalate and renting is becoming more desirable because it is the ideal way to live in a neighbourhood for which ownership is out of reach. With market rent continuing to rise, management understands that there must be value for the rental dollar and with the revenue stream, many older buildings are being renovated and revitalized – either on a large scale or suite-by-suite, as tenants turn over. While the penthouse will always own the title of prestigious, renting is quickly becoming the preference, especially for those that prioritize location over other considerations. When it’s time to make a move, let Renters Guide help. Check us out online at YPNextHome.ca, and get ready to rent your new home!

DOWNTOWN BRAMPTON IS A is

neighbourhood which presents an juxtaposition of old meeting the new. With highways 107 and 410 running along northern and eastern boundaries, this uber leafy suburbanurban city core extends up to the outskirts of Queen St. E. in the south and Chinguacousy Road in the west. Downtown Brampton offers a unique feel, different from the usual expectations a downtown core. It has a small town, relaxed feel, but within a big city. The area is tree-lined, filled with historical landmarks and heritage properties showing its Victorian roots. Sidewalks are welcoming – you can

stroll, and not power walk to keep up with the office goers. Downtown Brampton is a vibrant and colourful hub of community events like the Farmers’ Market at Market Square, skating activities and concerts in Gage Park, an annual car show - Classic Cars and Legendary Stars in July, the Rib ‘n’ Roll Rotary Club festival, Shakespeare in Garden Square near the Rose Theatre, the Flower City Parade, Art of Jazz Festival, Santa Claus Parade and New Year’s Eve Festivities. Residents have quick access to a plethora of restaurants, parks, entertainment, culture, retail and

fashion outlets. The Brampton Public Library, The YMCA and the Heritage Complex are a few of the many mentionable area attractions for the young and retired, alike. Downtown Brampton is a hub for transit, including Brampton Transit, Via Rail, Go Rail and Go Bus. It’s close to highways 410 and 107. Area residents often walk to work or other amenities, given its high walkability score, and enjoy short, hassle-free drives to the international airport.

Advice | THE RENTALIST

The best non-reno renos for your rental unit By Jackie Marchildon AS A RENTER, YOU’VE LIKELY HAD a moment or two when you wished you could make a big change to your rental unit — the countertops, the flooring — or, on a bad day, everything. But you also know you can’t make drastic changes, and you probably don’t really want to invest that much time and money into it. Luckily, there are a number 22

YPNEXTHOME.CA

of options for renters that can help make big changes without the headache (and illegality) of renovating a rental. Use contact paper Generic countertops are a staple in rental units but they are easy to change without renovations. Contact paper comes in all kinds of

You can change your counters or even add a backsplash without painting or breaking the bank.

Painting can be a pain, but it can have dramatic effects on a space. To mimic the look of a chair rail, paint two-tone walls — use a dark colour in the upper area and a lighter one in the lower section. kitchen cupboards, for example, you create a bright, open-concept look. For an even richer effect, you can paint the insides of the cupboards or use contact paper to liven it all up.

colours and designs and applying it can make a huge difference in the kitchen. You can change your counters or even add a backsplash without painting or breaking the bank. Remove cupboard doors Most of the time we think we need to add things to make a big difference, but that’s not always true. If you remove the doors of your

Change light fixtures and switches Replacing boring light fixtures with new distinctive ones like chandeliers or pendant lamps can really alter the look of your unit. If your home feels dark, this helps in the obvious way of brightening the space up, but it also helps a rental feel more unique. Check with your landlord before you play with anything electrical and you need to hire a professional. You can also change your light switch plates. Replace the dull plastic ones with something fancy like gold or brightcoloured plates to create little pops of colour throughout your home. Paint and hang mirrors Painting can be a pain, but it can have dramatic effects on a space. To mimic the look of a chair rail, paint two-tone walls — use a dark colour in the upper area and a lighter one in the lower section. If your wish is for spaciousness, paint a light colour and hang mirrors. Incorporating mirrors into your decor helps lighten up a

space and they tend to look nice too. Invest in a portable dishwasher and/or an island In spirit of creating more space (and keeping you sane if you feel like you’re always doing dishes), buy a portable dishwasher. Not only will it save you hours of dishwashing time, it’ll give you more counterspace! If you already have a dishwasher, and simply crave more counters, buy an island — it works as storage, a counter and a table. Add smart storage If you wish you could build more closets in your house (or build a garage), find unique ways to store stuff. Ceiling hooks are a great way to hang big items like bikes and shelves can double as storage and decor. Change the hardware A new showerhead can make a huge difference in the bathroom. If you buy the right one, it’ll make you feel like you’ve renovated your shower and it’ll look nice and shiny. While you’re at it, see if you can change up your faucets and little drawer knobs too. These little changes yield big results.

Advice | APARTMENTALITY

The perks of LIVING ALONE By Kathryn Kusyszyn

TO HAVE A ROOM OF ONE’S OWN,

as famously championed by Virginia Woolf, is a necessity for a woman writer. In modern times, more women (and men), whether writers or not, are taking advantage of financial independence to enjoy the benefits of solitary living. In our overcrowded world, with incessant advertising, stimulation, and pollution of all sorts, living alone provides a sanctuary for the soul. It’s a respite for the individual who needs to recharge, with somewhat surprising social and creative implications. Primary among the benefits of living alone is the freedom afforded to come and go as one likes, do as one pleases, and not answer to anyone. There is no need to deal with others’ preferences in the areas of music, food, decorating, entertainment, temperature and above all, cleanliness. Only one person’s mess to clean up, one person’s laundry, one person’s dishes… ah, heavenly!

Other perks are privacy and the opportunity for full self-expression. No one is present to cramp one’s style. Wandering the house in all manner of (un)dress is perfectly acceptable, as is ordering in at 3am, having spontaneous dance parties, and leaving the dishes unwashed for days. This type of home is conducive to productivity, since there is no one around to get into long conversations with. The next Great Canadian novel is more likely to be written without the distraction of others. When one does desire company, it is by choice. Eric Klinenberg, author of the book The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising appeal of Living Alone, found that people who lived alone spent more time with friends and neighbours than married couples. Apparently so-called ‘loners’ have the best of both worlds, quiet when they want it and company when they want it. The benefit of guaranteed quiet at home is a welcome contrast

MORE ADVICE ONLINE ypnexthome.ca/news/advice

to the outside world. Especially for introverts, who recharge by spending time alone, this living arrangement is desirable and potentially essential for their wellbeing. Home becomes an oasis, a place of restorative solitude. A single inhabitant home can also be a castle. Knowing that everything is just where one left it (excepting mischievous pets), is a feature not available to multi-person households. It’s grounding and stabilizing. Not to mention that the last piece of cake is never eaten by someone else. So if you think about it, for reasons of social health, peace of mind, selfexpression and creativity, solitary living is on the upswing. Virginia would certainly approve.

Kathryn Kusyszyn is a health and lifestyle consultant in Victoria BC. She loves sharing the benefits of holistic health through yoga, massage and nutrition, and is a long-time freelance writer. yogakat.ca

Advice | RENTERS’ HELP

Five things every renter should do By Elisa Krovblit YOU’RE A RENTER AND you appreciate the lifestyle. Ask any homeowner who has received an unexpected roof repair bill, or had to call a plumber or had to move to accept a job offer - and you’ll appreciate it even more – especially all of you “all inclusive” renters. Have you heard the news about hydro prices these days? Or do you enjoy your luxury of not having to pay attention to that issue. But rental living has a few demands that can be easily met by every resident, ensuring that their rental experience should be nothing but maintenance-free and smooth sailing. 1. Understand your lease

You signed it and you’re bound by it. Whenever you’re about to sign a contract – and yes, your lease is a legally binding contract – read it and make sure you understand it. If there is anything you don’t agree with, ask. If there is any wrong info, have it corrected. Leases can be negotiated, changed and rewritten. Once it’s signed, those are the rules. 2. Know your rights

Each province and territory has its own set of rental rules and there will be a landlord and tenant board or government office that enforces them. Know how to access them and understand the basics. If anything in your lease contradicts the rental law, the rental law overrules. If you have issues during your tenancy, these are a great place to start to find out what your rights are and how to resolve them. You’ll also need to know how your deposits work and how to give proper notice. If you do that wrong you might find yourself on the hook for a lot of money you weren’t expecting to spend. 3. Rental insurance

A lot of renters are under the misinformed impression that the 40

YPNEXTHOME.CA

landlord has you covered. The landlord has insurance, but it’s coverage for the building – literally the structure, mechanicals and the common areas. You need tenant’s insurance to cover your personal belongings. Imagine if you had to replace everything you own at once. Clothes, furniture, electronics, kitchenware etc. Imagine a pipe bursts and destroys much of what’s in its path. And it’s not just property loss or damage, if there is a fire and you’re displaced, your insurance will help cover that. If a visitor has an accident in your premises, insurance foots the lawsuit bill. Rental insurance is quite inexpensive. Many leases stipulate you must have it, but even if it’s not mandatory, it’s not a good idea to skip it. 4. Check your credit

If you’re thinking about moving – now or in the future – keep an eye on your credit. You’re going to have a bit of trouble moving with bad credit since most landlords now do a

credit check as part of the application process. If you pay bills late, try to break the habit. See what’s on your credit report and try working to repair it. Plus, sometimes mistakes get made. You don’t want a mistake to cost you a rental opportunity – or any opportunity for that matter! 5. Laundry

In-suite laundry is becoming much more common, especially in upscale, newly renovated or new buildings. But if you don’t have it in your suite, make sure you’re laundry-room ready. Get a bundle buggy or laundry cart to store your soap and make transporting loads to and from the laundry room much easier. (Bundle buggies are great for taking stuff to and from the car too). Keep a stock of supplies and get into the habit of reloading your card or replenishing your stash of quarters after each laundry day. That way you’re not scrounging and scrambling if you need to do an emergency load or want a last-minute outfit.

Advice | MOVING

Five ways to make moving a cleaner, greener process By Chuck Resnick

WE NEED TO THINK of the

environment with every activity even moving day can be cleaner and Greener, and it doesn’t take much effort. Waste caused by the moving process not only stems from packing supplies, but also from the waste accumulated over many years within a home. Both can be extremely taxing on the environment if not properly managed. Here are some suggestions on how to make your move a cleaner, Greener process: 1 Plan ahead. Waiting until the last minute to prepare for a move will make any environmental concerns an afterthought. Start early so you have the extra time to sort through recyclable items – in your apartment and in storage – for delivery to recycling depots prior to moving day. Typically your storage contains the highest concentration of recyclable waste, so start the sorting process there first. Consider holding a garage sale or donating gently used but no longer wanted items to a charity rather than have them end up in a landfill site. 2 Research. Survey local recycling options to find the most convenient solution for recyclables. Many cities offer curbside pickup or “sort and drop” depots. Visit earth911.com for a list of local organizations that can dispose of all types of recyclable materials. 3 Organize. Prepare recyclables by organizing into categories: plastic, glass, aluminum, paper, cardboard, 44

YPNEXTHOME.CA

Do not throw away used moving boxes when the move is complete. A well-made corrugated box is great for storage or may be reused for a future move or passed on to someone else who is moving. etc. Look up the requirements of the local recycler to see if there are any additional steps needed to prepare recyclables beforehand. 4 Care for hazardous material. As you clean in preparation to move, be conscientious about the kinds of materials being packed to move with you and which items are to be disposed. Toxic items, such as paint, batteries, house cleaning products, automobile oils, pesticides and fertilizers are dangerous and cannot be transported in the back of a commercial moving truck. Also consider these items cannot be thrown-out with your regular garbage. Look up the specialized recycling depots for toxic products in your city.

5 Reuse. Do not throw away used moving boxes when the move is complete. A well-made corrugated box is great for storage or may be reused for a future move or passed on to someone else who is moving. Contact local schools or charity organizations, such as women’s shelters, scout troops, and food banks to ask if they need boxes to redistribute donated items. Donating gently used boxes not only reduces waste, but can be a big help in support of a good cause.
