i rent mostly because i'm single and my job location can change at a moment's notice and make my commute impossible so i'm still in the inbetween unsure phase. i like the place overall though. it's really big and ish but i don't want a mortgate until i'm really settled. 


I feel since you are in a transient phase, you shouldn't waste your money on a major renovation project like changing tiles and flooring right now.  Save your money and wait, especially since you do like the place except for the bathroom.

There's this website called save the pink bathrooms. I thought it was cute. Maybe reading about them will make you feel a little more affectionate towards the deco:-)

But if you plan to be there for years and the owner will deduct the renovation cost from your rent and it'll make you happy

Then why not

I can see if you want to paint the apartment but don't do any costly renovations like removing and installing new tiles.
