Quote from @Walter McDonald:

Should I provide a kitchen when renting rooms?


 If you want your tenants to stick around for awhile I would offer a kitchen.

Thank you! It’s a small one bedroom. I was planning on renting out the the living room as a bedroom.  I was considering making the kitchen into a bedroom so that I could rent out three rooms.

Hey @Walter McDonald - I'm an investor & broker in NYC. In these instances you should ask yourself what type of tenant you want to attract. 

If you want to attract the type of tenant that doesn't expect a kitchen then go for it. Most stable tenants that are dependable to pay their rent on time and won't move every lease renewal typically expect a kitchen (even if its shared).
