Home to Make a Rental Homey

Friday, 14 July 2017

Just because you are renting a property doesn't mean you can't make yourself at home! Use these simply steps to make coming home a joy. https://www.homeproperties.com/blog/january-2016/3-ideas-to-make-your-apartment-feel-like-home

 

1. Personal Mementos
Hang paintings and personal photographs on the wall, or place photos in decorative frames and scatter them in various areas of the apartment. Throw a quilt or afghan from a family member over the couch or chair. Situate personal mementos like trinkets or collectibles throughout the apartment to remind you of special moments or memories. By adding personal items to the apartment, you will make it feel much more like home.

2. Create Your Own Style with Accessories
Some apartments for rent may have clear guidelines on how much you can change within the apartment. Talk to the property manager first before making any changes to the apartment.

Add drapes, blinds, or sheers to the windows. Drapes provide a dramatic flair, especially when they reach the floor. Decorative rods and flowing drapes in brilliant colors allow you to put your own statement in the whole apartment.

Add decorative pillows to the couch, and set potted plants around the apartment. If you have a balcony, add a small bistro table set or a lounger with a side table stacked with magazines or books.

3. Add Furniture
To feel more like home, you may want to add your own unique style. A traditional bedroom suite you find at an auction or a dining table with chairs that goes on sale at the furniture store can provide that homey feel you’ve been searching for right in your own apartment. Make the kitchen a place to gather by adding bar chairs to an extended countertop.

Make your apartment feel like home by incorporating a few of these tips into your apartment. The more at home you feel in a rental, the more relaxed and comfortable you’ll be with your surroundings.

How to Make New Friends

Monday, 10 July 2017

I found this article about finding new friends when moving to a new city. But really these can work for anyone who is looking to meet new friendly faces!  https://www.homeproperties.com/blog/march-2016/five-tips-for-making-friends-when-you-move-to-a-ne

 

1. Let Apps Guide You
Apps such as Meetup allow you to cut through much of the social anxiety that goes into meeting new people. Meetup focuses on meeting people in real life and enables you to create and join groups that pique your interest. Do you like Mario Kart? Coffee? Hiking? American Sign Language? There are plenty of people who enjoy your favorite activities, too. Other apps to look into include Foursquare and Nearify. If you have a dog, then the Meet My Dog app could be your best friend.


2. Sign Up for Sports
Many localities offer adult leagues for sports that include softball, basketball and disc golf. Signing up for a team is a great way to exercise and meet new people. If you are not especially athletic, don't worry. You can join a bowling league or similar activity; most passive sports emphasize socialization over competition.


3. Volunteer
Few things feel better than being a part of something greater, improving yourself, and meeting new folks. Volunteer opportunities are everywhere, and you can opt for a one-day experience or an ongoing commitment.


4. Register for a Class
Have you always been interested in an activity, or want to brush up your skills in a certain area? Now is the time to do it. Class offerings are incredibly diverse. Take pottery, karate, calculus, and more. Look into the offerings from the local parks and recreation department as well as local colleges.


5. Check out Alumni Networks
If you went to college, it's possible that your school has groups for alumni in your area. Do a Facebook or Google search to find them. These groups often schedule meetups, and the connections you make can also help you find job opportunities.
