In my last apartment, the toilet started leaking after one day (turns out it had cracked because the apartment had been left unheated during the winter months).
I think it's also important, if the boiler is in the apartment, to instal a carbon monoxide sensor. Ours went off several times, but the landlord assured me that there couldn't be anything wrong with the incredibly old and noisy boiler. I always kept the windows open when we slept because I was quite concerned about it.
I also found it bizzarre that the landlord deducted money from my security deposit to pay for the annual boiler maintenance fee.

I like Urbanara for rugs and textiles.
Carpet Vista has beautiful rugs and excellent customer service.
I would personally advise against Maisons du Monde, since I found their customer service to be extremely poor.

I would definitely keep the shelves - I think they add interest to the room. Personally, I would paint the wardrobes a dark colour, but keep the walls light (if not necessarily white). I'd also opt for a large rug instead of carpet (more flexible).
