“The Home You Own” is anchored by editor Marisa Kashino and reporter Rachel Kurzius. Its coverage will be wide-ranging — from stories about routine maintenance and home improvement, to renovating and furnishing, to houseplants and gardening — and the ways these intersect with our environment, finances, mental health and relationships.
Examples of the types of questions “The Home You Own” will be answering in its first few weeks include the best ways to create counter space in small bathrooms and kitchens, how to keep your plants alive and thriving, and how to prepare your home for an electric vehicle.
“Taking care of a home, whether it’s a one-bedroom apartment or a house with a yard, can be really intimidating — it’s expensive, it’s hard work and it’s often not intuitive,” said Kashino. “Our goal is to make The Home You Own a super smart — but always accessible — resource that readers can turn to again and again.”
