Tips for Before You Move into Your Atlanta Apartment

It seems like your current rental starts to feel like home when suddenly it is time to relocate to a new Atlanta apartment. If it has been awhile since your last move, you may have forgotten how painful the transition can be. Unless you have hired professionals, you will rely on friends to help you. Buy them pizza and follow these tips to lighten the burden of moving into your next apartment rental.

First, get rid of some of your things. You have too much stuff to move. Sell items in a yard sale, donate things to charity and give stuff to friends. Minimizing the work load can begin when you start searching for your Atlanta apartment.

Then, have your remaining possessions packed before the movers arrive at your old apartment. Nothing will waste more time than having your pals or hired muscle watch you decide what goes in which box. Be ready for them to carry boxes.

Next, select the best volunteers for moving into your next Atlanta apartment rental. Mark boxes accurately to protect your friends. Do not let boxes exceed the appropriate weight for individuals to carry. Likewise, choose the right vehicles. A living room sofa will not fit in your friend’s hatchback.

Finally, consider hiring cleaners to take care of your vacated apartment unit. The place will need to be spotless to receive any or all of your security deposit back. Moving all of your things has likely taken its toll on you and your buddies, so why not let someone else take care of the old place? Start enjoying your new Atlanta apartment (and pizza) now!

The Lexington Apartments in East Point, GA with 17 different floor plans.

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.
