Enjoy a better renting experience with these apartment living tips.
- Make It Feel Like Home – Although you are renting, you can still make your apartment feel like home. Use decor like paintings creatively to keep the walls from looking too bare, add a large rug to mix things up and use overall good design principles.
- Noisy Neighbors – You are only separated from your neighbors by a wall. If you have a noisy neighbor who likes loud music or watching TV at full volume in the early hours of the morning, try talking to them before going to management to place an official complaint.
- A Good Relationship With Your Landlord – Avoid future problems with your landlord by getting everything documented. Know your rights as a tenant should something go wrong in the future.
- Temporary Upgrades – One of the downsides of renting is that you cannot upgrade things that are older. However, you can perform temporary upgrades with the consent of the landlord, especially if it will save him money in the end.
