Organize Your Atlanta Apartment

Is there anything as influential as the space you surround yourself with? Your Atlanta apartment plays a major role in how you relax. Design your apartment home to prevent clutter from negatively affecting your mental wellbeing. Life isn’t always orderly when you have to work, feed the kids, walk the dog, clean the kitty litter, do the shopping, cook, clean… the list goes on and on no matter your lifestyle.

Placing a child’s bed in the corner creates a convenient place to store toys.

The phrase, “out of sight, out of mind,” leaps out. Small furniture positioned in the corner of your apartment will create a great hiding spot. Ottomans and coffee tables with hidden storage are a stylish fix to keep items in your living room hidden.

Baskets made from natural materials are another way to bring order and beauty into your Atlanta apartment. These are easy to slide under the bed in the bedroom or they fit on the bookshelf in the home office. Personalize and label the compartments to easily find all your accessories.

Open shelving gives the illusion of extra space, but this decorating trick can expose your items to excessive dust. Nice fabric is cheap and can make a great cover for storage in the bathroom. Also, portable laundry baskets like the ones from IKEA can keep your apartment’s bathroom neat and clean.

Be creative in your Atlanta apartment rental to keep your home and mind clutter free. Spacious apartments for rent in Atlanta are now leasing at all JAMCO properties.

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!

Entertain in every square foot of your Atlanta apartment

Hosting a party in your Atlanta apartment is less restricted by the size of your rental than you think. Having the right furniture and layout provides more space for entertaining in an apartment or townhome. Invite everyone with room to spare. Try these tips to get the most out of every square foot.

Armrest free seating offers guests more flexibility for sitting. Benches at the dining room table and chic modern furniture, instead of traditional couches and loveseats, provide more seats in your apartment home.

Most people will hesitate to sit on a traditional coffee or end table. Be creative by considering alternatives. Decorative and useful, storage chests or ottomans with firm tops can make excellent tables AND they invite guests to have a seat.

Expand your home onto the outdoor patio or balcony of your Atlanta apartment. We enjoy warm weather most of the year, so why not? While decorating for the party, carry the theme to your outdoor “living room.” Opening up the doors will relieve the congestion even in a tiny apartment. Remember to be considerate of your neighbors.
