7 Moving Tips for Atlanta Apartments

Relocating to Atlanta apartments is both exciting and stressful. Deciding where stuff belongs and planning the layout of your apartment floor plan is fun, but a lot of time and effort goes into packing and moving to an Atlanta apartment. Begin planning early to limit stress. Try using the following guidelines on moving day.

  1. Move on a weekday when leasing offices, banks, utilities and government offices are open. According to U-Haul, truck rentals are more affordable during the week too.
  2. Start packing as early as 2 months before moving day. Out of season clothing, seasonal decorations, china, books, a movie collection… these are all things you can pack early. Having a stack of boxes around your current apartment for 8 weeks might not sound like a fun, but it will save you so much stress.
  3. Label your boxes by room and general content. If you’ve hired professional movers or if you’ve asked friends to help, this will help them know where things go in your Atlanta apartment.
  4. Place your dinner plates standing on edge in the box. Wrap each in plenty of paper and pad the bottom of your box. This will help prevent damage to your dishes. For all your boxes be sure to fill the empty space with paper or padding so that they will not collapse.
  5. Pack large items in small boxes and small items in large boxes. Heavy large items will fall through the center of a large box and small light items can be safely stacked in larger boxes. The exception is books. Heavy books should be packed in small boxes so you can lift them.
  6. On moving day, leave your pets and small children with a friend. Movers, professional or otherwise are distracted by kids and barking dogs. Plus, this insures the safety of children and pets alike.
  7. Finally, remember the last thing you packed? It’s probably the first thing you want to unpack! You were using it right up to the last-minute because you need it. Maybe it was cleaning supplies, maybe it was bedding or maybe it was a toothbrush… Chances are it was important.

Making the Most of Small Floor Plans, Atlanta Apartments

Not all Atlanta apartments are created with equal square footage, but apartment residents can get the most out of their floor plans with 5 simple tips for living in a small space.

  1. Household items used on a daily basis can make beautiful decorations when displayed. Shiny copper pots arranged on the stove in the kitchen are a great example. In a child’s bedroom, treasured toys can be left out while you make use of “under the bed” storage for more unsightly items.
  2. A spacious living room can be made out of a tiny layout with a few personal touches. Art and books do not necessarily mean clutter when properly displayed and they can open up the entire world inside any Atlanta apartment.
  3. Of course, apartment dwellers know that less is more. Getting rid of things you don’t use can mean big bucks in your pocket. Selling items of value and donating the rest will help keep closets and storage areas organized.
  4. Clean, well organized Atlanta apartments feel bright and roomy. It is important to de-clutter and clean especially in a small floor plan. Not only will your home feel and smell better but cleaning will reduce the risk of pests inside too.
  5. Finally, remember that light is a great way to make an apartment seem larger. Well-placed mirrors can double the natural light in a space. Even without tons of natural light, residents can include light colored furniture, linens and window coverings to open up their apartment.

Winter Preparedness in Atlanta, Georgia Apartments

To help Georgia’s apartment residents prepare, plan and stay informed about winter, Ready Georgia recommends five winter safety tips for resident in Atlanta apartments (plus a few bonus words of wisdom):

1. When the weather outside is frightful, make sure to stay weather-aware and listen to the latest alerts concerning winter weather. Familiarize yourself with the terms that are used to identify winter weather.

2. Don’t be a Grinch when it comes to purchasing and compiling the appropriate emergency supplies. Pack a ready kit for your Atlanta apartment and vehicle. Include adequate clothing and blankets in your kit to keep you warm.

3. If you plan to go dashing through the snow, drive your sleigh safely. Keep an extra ready kit in the trunk of your car. In addition to the basic essentials, consider adding an ice scraper, extra blanket, sand for traction and jumper cables. Fully winterize your vehicle and keep your gas tank at least half full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines. Avoid driving when roads are icy. Stay cozy in your Atlanta apartments!

4. Keep warm on frosty days by weather-proofing your apartment home. Open cabinet doors to allow heat to get to un-insulated pipes under sinks and appliances near your apartment’s exterior walls. Allow faucets to drip during cold weather to prevent freezing.

5. Regardless of the chill, never use a stove or oven to heat your Atlanta rental. Prepare safe alternative sources of heat.  Never bring portable generators, camp stoves or grills into Atlanta townhouses and apartments; they should be kept outside and at least 20 feet away from windows, doors and vents.

6. And finally…no matter how much someone double dog dares you, never stick your tongue to a flagpole when it’s cold out.

Atlanta Apartments and Diversity

Atlanta serves as home and epicenter of cultural diversity in the South – and the United States, for that matter. Encompassing international art and décor in your Atlanta apartment is affordable and easy. You do not need to spend lots of money on Miami Circle in Buckhead to get authentic pieces to decorate your apartment in Atlanta, but it’s a great place to find inspiration.

Maplewood Pointe Apartments in Jonesboro, Georgia- a culturally diverse community.

Buford Highway hosts some of the most diverse shopping and dining in northeast Atlanta and DeKalb County. Whether you prefer Asian inspired work from Korea, Vietnam, Thailand… or crafts from South and Central America you will find plenty of affordable pieces to fill a spacious Atlanta townhouse or apartment. Many of these items are mass produced but you can find deals on legitimate items too.

Many shops in metro Atlanta specialize in fair trade. These specialty shops stock their shelves with fabric, art and handmade goods imported directly from artisans in other countries. Besides putting money in the pockets of true craftspeople, every item is a unique representation of a culture. Bring a piece of history and art into your apartment rental without leaving Atlanta or breaking the bank.

Combining modern art with a few antiques is a great way to highlight a culture in your apartment. By incorporating natural elements like wood and stone from a region, you can honor the land as well.  Fabric for drapes, upholstery and rugs can be used boldly or in an understated way to pull a diverse look together in your Atlanta apartment.

Homemade Valentine’s Day Gifts for him

ValentinesForHim

Atlanta shops are beginning to bustle with Valentine’s Day shoppers. The folks at Maplewood Pointe Apartments have compiled a list of homemade gifts for men that are extra special as well as their store-bought equivalents.

Music

You can buy expensive tickets to his favorite artist, but there are more thoughtful options available. Rent an affordable karaoke machine and invite his friends over for fun. Or take him back to high school; make a mixed cd of his favorite jams all in one place.

Beer Soap

Ok, purchasing this Guinness beer soap for $6.99 at Etsy may be far more practical than making your own. But for the ambitious Maplewood Pointe, wanted to include instructions for making honey bock soap.

Shaving Cream

High end shaving creams are popping up all over the city. The Art of Shaving located in Lenox Mall and other locations has starter kits for $50. Try your hand at an easy recipe that won’t break your budget.

Phone Case

Gadgets multi-task so why not the cases that protect them? Speck delivers phone cases that double as a wallet for your man. A handcrafted cover will mean more.
