Organizing Atlanta apartments offers apartment dwellers the chance to express personal touches and lifestyle preferences in their homes. Residents can maximize space and minimize clutter when they consider their apartment by thinking in 3-D! A small or cozy floor plan might not give a renter much floor space but hanging shelves and baskets from the walls of Atlanta apartments can really show creativity while increasing square footage!

Furniture that multi-tasks is invaluable in Atlanta apartments with limited closets or storage. Ottomans can be extra seating for guests and many come with storage beneath for blankets and pillows or whatever you want to keep on hand but out of sight. While the master bedroom in the 3 bedroom townhouse at The Lexington II is complete with TWO walk-in closets, beds with drawers underneath give easy access to seasonal clothing or linens in a guest bedroom or the drawers can store toys in a child’s bedroom – at Lexington II you choose from our 1, 2 & 3 bedroom floor plans.

The Camp Creek Market Place is just 4 miles from The Lexington II Apartments. Atlanta apartment renters will find many storage solutions here from large retailers like Target and Lowe’s or discount stores like T.J. Maxx and BJ’s Wholesale Club.

Money Saving Tips for Atlanta Apartments

Expenses can quickly add up for tenants leasing Atlanta apartments. Monthly rent payments can equal up to 1/3 of a renter’s income, but other costs can be controlled to make comfortable apartment living more affordable. The first step to saving money is to create a household budget. There is a range of software products for the home office that make managing your personal finances simple and some good ones are even FREE! Of course, old-fashion pen and paper will work too.

You’ve heard the saying,” You need to spend money to make money.” Well, that can be true for saving money too. Purchasing renter’s insurance for Atlanta apartments is cheap and the potential savings could be enormous, especially if you don’t have the cash to replace all your belongings in the event of a catastrophe like theft or fire. A good insurance policy will also offer you protection against possible damages you, your pet or a guest might cause to your apartment home. The website About Home has answers to many of the frequently asked questions about renter’s insurance for apartment dwellers.

Another way to cut expenses in Atlanta apartments is to monitor and control utility bills. Heating and cooling a spacious floor plan will undoubtedly cost extra, but there are ways to save. Wearing sweaters and using blankets instead of adjusting the thermostat are great ways to maintain a cozy apartment without raising costs in winter. Using fans and dark window coverings can help cool a bright apartment home in the summer. These solutions help save money and the environment too!  Some Atlanta apartment communities like The Lexington II Apartments in East Point include utilities in the rental price so residents are never surprised by unexpected utility bills.

Finally, some Atlanta apartments like the communities locally owned by JAMCO Properties, Inc. let residents make money while leasing affordable townhomes and apartments.  By referring family and friends as residents, apartment dwellers can earn extra income AND make their friends and family their neighbors at the same time! Ask your leasing specialist about the resident referral program at your community.

Christmas Tree Safety in Atlanta Apartments

Beat the Heat in Your Atlanta Apartment

Hotlanta temperatures keep rising and by now June’s electric bill has made its way to your Atlanta apartment. After you recover from the initial shock over the cost of cooling your apartment home, consider these budget saving tips.

Fan cooling an Atlanta apartment

Keep cool in your Atlanta apartment rental.

Block out the heat. Keep your blinds closed tight during day time hours. Choose heavier curtains not only to shade your spacious living room from the sun but to help keep the air conditioned air from escaping through the windows of your apartment. Good thermal curtains will keep you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter while decreasing the power bill!

Use fans to circulate the air. Most JAMCO Properties apartments are equipped with ceiling fans, but a good standing fan will work too. Fans can make a room feel 5 to 7 degrees cooler and they are cost effective. Set ceiling fans to pull hot air up and away!

Finally keep it cool inside by using your appliances wisely. Televisions and computers give off heat so leave them off during the day. The dishwasher and washing machine increase humidity and make an apartment feel warmer so run them at night too. Instead of baking a dish or working over the hot stove, enjoy cold salads or entrees you can microwave. These appliances eat up their own electricity and work against your air conditioner.

Beat the heat this summer at Lexington II Apartments in East Point, Georgia minutes from downtown Atlanta and all utilities are included!

Oversized Furniture in Small Spaces

The Lexington Apartments just south of Atlanta in East Point, GA have a wide range of spacious floor plans for every budget. The large bedrooms accomodate every need. If you haven’t found the perfect home in metro Atlanta they wanted to share the tips below for moving large furninture into a small space:

Prepare:

Measure the length and width of the bed and other large pieces of bedroom furniture. Use a pen or pencil to write these numbers down on a notepad; you’ll need them for reference. Measure the length and width of the room so you know exactly how much space you have to place the furniture. Make a note of outlets at this time, too. Lamps and alarm clocks need to be placed on suitable furniture (dressers or tables) near the outlets.

Place:

A bed is usually the piece of bedroom furniture that takes up the most room. Once you know where the bed will be situated, you’ll find it easier to place other furniture. Lie down in the bed as though you were sleeping. If you are comfortable with the bed’s angle and placement, keep it there. There should be enough room alongside the bed to easily get up in the morning (or in the middle of the night) without bumping into things.

Place the next largest piece of furniture in the room, which is probably the dresser. Keep enough space between the dresser and other items to access all drawers. Likewise, if you are placing a desk in the room, leave room for the desk chair.

Place smaller items, like nightstands and wall decor, in the room last. It’s easier to manipulate these smaller items to make them fit than it is to place large pieces. You can also choose to eliminate a few of the small items.

Practice:

Leave the room and come back in. Pretend you are going to the furniture items: You are going to bed, for example, or retrieving something from the dresser. If you must work to avoid bumping into table corners or other pieces of furniture, you may need to arrange the room a bit differently.

Winterize Your Apartment Home

Jamco Properties, Inc. is proud to offer affordable apartment homes.  Unlike Ashwood Ridge and Lexington II set up to include gas and water in the rent, most multi-family housing in Georgia is not. Gas and electric bills can skyrocket this time of year, but you can take steps to stay warm and save money.

  1. Securely cover windows with plastic. Seal them by using strong tape and heating the plastic with a hair dryer to shrink it. Bubble wrap is a good idea too. The pockets of air provide extra insulation.
  2. Make a draft stopper or purchase one from a local retailer.
  3. Reverse the direction of ceiling fans.
  4. Use outlet insulators.
  5. Wrap your hot water heater in a special insulation jacket. Up to 25% of your heat bill can be from making hot water.
  6. Close unused rooms and vents.
  7. Turn your thermostat down. Wearing thermal underwear and eating hot soup are old fashion tips that still work today. Socks slippers and layers all help.
