Keeping your Owasso apartments organized is easier said than done. Few things feel more defeating after a long day of work than walking into an apartment that’s cluttered. If that keep happening to you, you’re probably tired of feeling the need to clean right away when you get home from work. When all you want to do is relax, the thought of cleaning can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. The staff at your apartments for rent in Owasso doesn’t want you to feel overwhelmed, so we set out to find some pieces of advice that might help our residents stay tidy without having to put in a lot of extra work.
We’re lucky to live in a time period when a lot of people live in apartments. There are, of course, advantages and disadvantages to this kind of lifestyle being so common, but one big benefit is the fact that companies are producing more and more products that are specifically designed for people who live in apartments. For example, IKEA is a home furniture store, but they have a wide variety of collapsible furniture with built in storage — perfect for apartment dwellers who need to maximize space.
The floor plans at 98 Apartments offer plenty of room for our residents to spread out, but there’s nothing wrong with doing everything you can to create even more open space. If that’s your goal, you’ll love this week’s blog. This week’s post is all about keeping your Owasso apartments organized, so you can enjoy a luxury lifestyle without worrying about constant tidying up.
Check out these pieces of advice below, and be sure to send this post to anyone in your life who might need a few pointers on how to stay organized. We’re sure you’ve got a few people in mind.
Make sure all your furniture is dual-purpose
If you want to maximize space in your apartment, follow this rule whenever you go furniture shopping: don’t buy any furniture that doesn’t have multiple uses. Your couch should have built-in storage, and so should your ottoman. Invest in floor lamps and headboards that have shelves built into them. This rule will save you space, as long as you can force yourself to stick to it.
Hide your wires
Until the tech industry fully moves on from wires, we’re stuck with them. We need wires, but they’re terribly ugly. Do whatever you can to hide wires or at least keep them neatly organized. You’ll start loving your apartment even more once you stop forcing yourself to look at unsightly wires. You can tuck them under rugs, buy wire covers or simply tie the extra wire up with a rubber band.
Invest in clear storage boxes
If you’re not storing your winter clothes and other seasonal items, you should start. There’s no point in cluttering up your closet with clothes that you haven’t worn in months. The best way to store these types of seasonal clothes is to put them in clear storage boxes. Clear boxes don’t look quite as good as boxes that are opaque, but they’re more practical. Clear boxes let you easily identify the location of your clothes without having to open and then dig through a stack of boxes.
That’s our list of tips for this week, residents! We hope these tips help you feel calm, cool and collected next time you walk into your apartment after work. There’s nothing better than coming home to a tidy apartment, and we’re happy to help our residents achieve that.
