I'd like a poll on all these people who use up SO much water running extra loads of clothes for all the extra sheet cleaning they do.....I bet at least a good 75% of whine and gripe about any other issue that is affecting the environment. You don't care that you are using up one of our most valuable resources - WATER!

IMO, it looks cluttered and it will be very impractical when coming and going - even more so if you are carrying in groceries or your sleeping kid or whatnot.

I find a twin bed way too deep to sit on comfortable when using it as a sofa. Futons are getting inexpensive - if you must need the sleeping space, it's a better route.

TV against bedroom wall. Use sofa to divide the room. Small table to the left. I'd recommend a small coffee table to lighten the visual look. Also a rug to define the living area will do wonders.

jwl0001 - Pretty much the same here - it would be nice and I know we'd both sleep better, but he doesn't like the idea and unless we slept in separate rooms, neither bedroom is big enough for two beds. If I had my way and more money, I'd want to rent a different apartment with a bigger master so we could do twins in the same room.

9ft x 9ft -- How large is your dining table. I have a table for four that would easily fit into this space and have plenty of room to walk around.

I don't think sleeping in separate beds is a downfall to a marriage - it might actually help. The problem is in most apartments bedrooms just aren't big enough without looking cluttered. I do admit one of the last times we were in separate bedrooms I slept peacefully.

Once every two weeks - anything more seems overkill unless I've been sick or something.

-Some kind of visual separator (room divider, curtain, bookshelf, etc)

I agree with the posters above that there needs to be a shot of the whole room, not just the areas of the room. Although my comment about the TV and sofa being too close together, it did make me smile to see someone finally not caring to admit they have a television - it's not a sin no matter how many people on here believe it so.

Make sure the locks on all windows are very stable. I'd want new locks on the doors or at least re-keyed. Good job with light timers but honestly I doubt it'll deter any thieves that know the neighborhood since they know your schedule and know you are not home.

I'd not go out and buy weapons - I second (or third) the advice to maybe take some self defense classes to make yourself feel better and it never hurts to know how to defend yourself.

Sorry a wall decal is NOT a headboard - so there is 4 headboards for under $100.

Is it me or is that couch sitting WAY to close to the TV for comfortable viewing?

And even if I had the original film strip, I'd be paying out my a** for new photos to be made since I am more than sure the local film shop isn't going to be able to convert something from a camera used 50-60 years ago.

Note -- Anything you put up there, prepare to dusty and grimey it weekly unless that's the look you like. So it's better off bare.
