Make The Space Your Own

It’s always a good idea when first moving into a new place to do a deep clean. You’ll want a nice, clean base before you start unpacking and decorating. Doing this you a chance to get to know the space a bit better. Our maintenance staff ensures that all apartments are in tip-top condition before you move in, but it never hurts to get acquainted with your new space! You can brainstorm while you are cleaning what may go where, and get an idea for how you want to set up your new apartment to make it yours.  

One Room At A Time

At first, with so many boxes and furniture everywhere, it’s hard to know where to start. We recommend unpacking one room at a time, starting with your bedroom. Get your bed set up with a comfy blanket and your favorite pillow, and maybe hang up a picture or two to begin making the space your own. 

Make sure to clear your bedroom of any other boxes. So on those first few nights, you can sleep peacefully, comfortably, and without clutter. It’ll give you a safe haven in the midst of the disarray, and you can begin to feel cozy where you need it the most.


Once you start getting a little more situated with major things like living/bedroom furniture placement and get some of those boxes unpacked, start adding some small decorations to make the space feel like your own. A lamp, piece of art, and some photographs are a great place to start and will give you a good base to build off of. What colors do you love? What smells make you feel good? 

This is your space now, so fill it with things you love and bring you joy!

Your Nose Knows

We all have such an emotional connection to smells. Certain scents can bring up memories and can make us feel calm and at peace. Whatever scent makes you feel good inside, grab a candle or some incense and light it up! This will make your apartment feel so much more like yours, and there’s no better feeling than that.
