More Storage Suggestions for Atlanta Apartments

We all have to deal with clutter, whether it’s in our Atlanta apartments, offices or cars. The more you de-clutter the lighter you will feel inside and outside your Atlanta apartment. We offer these storage suggestions to help residents rid their apartment homes of unwanted clutter.

The fastest method to de-clutter your Atlanta rental is to recycle, donate or sell household items that you no longer want. Organize your apartment by room. Start with the kitchen, a walk-in closet, the master bedroom, bathrooms or living areas.

Now try to create more space in your Atlanta apartment by rearranging furniture. Because your needs change your living areas should evolve too. Again, try removing items that are underutilized. If the layout of your apartment is limited on space, do not buy large storage items that don’t serve multiple functions. Many coffee tables and ottomans serve as both storage and furniture.

Next use bins to store like items and objects with irregular shapes. These can be used in many places throughout Atlanta apartments: the living room to store remote controls, the kitchen for spices or snacks, a child’s bedroom for different toys, the closet to store accessories and the bathroom to keep under the sink organized. Be sure to label your bins so you know where everything in your home is located.

Then make use of open and flat surfaces as much as possible. If you don’t have bathroom counter space in your Atlanta apartment, utilize trays to store toiletries at the top of the toilet tank. To further maximize space, opt to use storage items that take up vertical spaces if you are lacking floor space. For example, purchase a tall dresser instead of a short one to have more storage or an over-the-toilet organization center for more room in the bathroom.

Holiday Diet Do’s for Atlanta Renters

This time of year, the temptation to splurge from your healthy eating habits will come from joyous roommates, friends and especially mom’s kitchen! Avoid putting on winter weight and still celebrate the holiday season in your Atlanta apartments. Don’t ignore party invitations; keep these 3 tips in mind instead.

Be home for the holidays at Mountain Lake Apartments

First maintain your regular routine by eating regular meals. Office potlucks and family feasts might tempt you to skip breakfast, lunch or dinner but that spells a recipe for diet disaster. Skipping meals is a leading cause for unhealthy snacking for many Atlanta renters. Enjoy your favorite holiday meals in moderation instead of skipping a meal to make up the calories.

Next keep a written record of all the food you prepare in your apartment or eat at parties. Remember to include any beverages you drink! Writing a food journal and tracking your food intake can prevent diet slips and help residents know how much time they should spend in their apartment community’s fitness center.

Finally Atlanta apartment renters can delete restaurants and take-out from their lunch menus. By packing a healthy lunch each day, residents save on the waist and the wallet too!

JAMCO Properties, Inc. in Atlanta, Georgia wishes you a healthy holiday season and a happy new year!

Express Style in Your Atlanta Apartment

The first step to decorating your Atlanta apartment is to figure out your decorating preferences. Enter the room you want to redecorate to get a grasp on your style. Begin with these steps to move your apartment rental in the direction you want.

Test yourself and be honest. Imagine someone you like and whose opinion you value walks into your home. When your guest walks into the space what do they say? What do you want them to say? The answers may be different and tell you what isn’t working in your Atlanta townhome or apartment.

Analyze what made you choose this space. Was it the location: peaceful park like setting or carefree lifestyle in walking distance to transit? Was it the building’s architecture: the floor plan or the unique outside? Make what brought you to your apartment work for you. Turn architectural details of the apartment building like bright windows or fireplaces into a focal point. Or bring some of the surrounding Atlanta, GA inside: color palette, fabric for textures and plants.

Stay practical with the lifestyle you live in your Atlanta apartment. If you have children or pets, having all white décor or fragile works of art is a recipe for disaster. Which room do you use the most in your apartment rental? If it is the kitchen focus your efforts there, if not move into the bedroom, living area or home office space.

Be resourceful. Hiring a decorator can be costly. If you’re on a limited budget you can decorate your affordable Atlanta apartment on your own. Scour the internet. Buy some decorating books from the bargain section at the bookstore.  You will be on your way to living well in your well decorated Atlanta apartment before you know it.
