Apartment Living: How to Decorate With Space Limitations Author: Angela Back Whether you are living in a studio apartment with one room and a bathroom or a larger apartment with three or four separate rooms, decorating challenges can and will occur. There is no reason to be discouraged because, as you will read below, there are several decorating tips that you can use, without spending a fortune, to make any size living space both functional and stunning. The most important obstacle to overcome is the color that you select for the walls and/or ceiling. When selecting a color choose one that is warm and inviting, as well as, one that promote a stress-free environment. In some instances, the living room, kitchen, and dining room all over-lap. If this is the case, then you will need to make sure that the colors you select for each room corresponds with one another and that the décor’ blends easily with each room. One suggestion is to choose a color that you can get varying shades of so that it separates each room while maintaining the unified color scheme. Dark colors tend to absorb light and visually make the walls seem as though they are closing in on you so take this into account when selecting a color. Keep in mind that the smaller the space the lighter the color of the walls and ceilings should be. Use bold and bright colors when selecting accents to give the room that burst of color that you are looking for. If you must use a dark color in a small space then the most workable solution is to paint the largest wall in the room a dark color while leaving the other walls a lighter more reflective color. This will create a nice contrast to the room without drawing attention to the small space. Now that you have selected the color scheme for your room(s) you will want to think about lighting. Lighting can make or break a room! A typical apartment will have flat overhead lights which make a small apartment seem smaller. If you are not at liberty to remove and replace the overhead lights then consider strategically placing lamps throughout the room to “stretch” the corner of each room and leave the overhead lights off. Using lamps and/or other light sources give you the freedom to control the room’s atmosphere, conceal cluttered areas due to limited space, and add a separated glow around the room. It is imperative that the furniture you select be both versatile and functional. For example, if you are living in a one bedroom apartment a futon couch can serve both as a couch and a bed. Position your couch facing the entrance to the living room to give your guest a sense of being welcomed. Another example of a functional piece is using a coffee table with built-in drawers that can hide throws, magazines, or just about anything that might otherwise create clutter in the room. Keep in mind, when purchasing furniture, the size of your apartment as well as the functionality of each piece.

Some Great Apartment Storage Ideas Author: The Apartment Dude We know the common scenario: The junk is piling up and space is running out. We have all been through this routine umpteen times and living in an apartment with all this junk can prove challenging when looking for places to store things. You can only stuff so much in your closet before the door busts off its hinges. It’s time to stop shoving things in boxes in the closet and use some of these creative storage and organizational ideas that will help you keep the junk under control. Wall Shelves- Take small storage pieces like a two shelved shoe organizer and attach them to the wall to create wall shelves that can easily house books, collectibles, and other little conversational items. Mobile Storage Unit- Find a cheap plastic multi-level storage shelf unit and attach some easy to attach casters or wheels to the bottom. Add a few small containers and/or bins to those shelves and suddenly you have a rolling organizational masterpiece ideal for storing shoes, socks and undies, tools, and other small items. Storage Bench- This is my favorite storage idea! Basically, get a hold of an old upper kitchen cabinet or even buy a new one from Home Depot. Add some feet to the bottom and attach seat cushions to the top. Suddenly, you have an awesome sittable piece of furniture with storage space underneath the seat. Stacked Bench Bookshelf- How about this: Stack three colored simple wooden benches on top of one another against a wall. Throw a standing clock on the top and line each bench below with books like a bookshelf. Make sure and add some attached support from the wall and, viola, you have a standing bookshelf. Organized Entryway- When you come into your apartment, think of all the junk you bring in with you. From coats and hats to phones, mail, and keychains, the amount of stuff that you bring in with you and empty from your pockets far out number the junk going out. So, keep it all close to the entry. Line you entryway walls with hooks to hang coats, keys, and hats. Set up a small shoe organizer to keep those muddy foot pieces on the linoleum floor. Install some hanging drawers and a wall shelf to store the mail, tax write off receipts and other small pieces that get lost anywhere else in the apartment. Add a piggy bank or a cool change jar to the mix to chunk all the spare change that dump out of your pockets. Lastly, put a small, tasteful waste basket near the door to rid of the candy wrappers, unneeded receipts, and other bits of trash before it enters your lair. If you are having some organizational issues and your apartment is getting cluttered from random items of junkness entering your abode everyday, try a few of these ideas to get things organized. The organized entryway and the storage bench really upgraded my living and lifestyle. If you can only try a couple. Try those!

What are the Components of a Renter’s Insurance Policy? Author: Trevor Mulholland A renters insurance policy protects the contents of a rented property against losses incurred due to theft, fire or damage due to a hurricane and other natural disasters. Renters insurance also offers protection for liability. It pays for liability for accidents, such as a visitor slipping on your floor and breaking an arm. This type of insurance is primarily designed to protect consumers from unexpected financial hardships. Renters policies specifically state what it insures against. There is a standard set of named perils covered by a renters insurance policy. Some of them are fire, lightning, windstorm, smoke, vandalism or malicious mischief, theft and accidental discharge of water due to a burst pipe. It can also include payment for the medical expenses of non-residents. Floods and earthquakes are oftentimes purchased separately from the renters policy in coastal areas and places prone to either. In most cases, windstorm coverage is also purchased as a rider to the main renters policy. Renters policies use two methods of valuation of the home contents, these are the actual cash value and the replacement cost. The actual cash value pays only for what the belongings were worth at the time of the loss. A household appliance worth about 0 three years before will cost significantly lower at the time of loss. On the other hand, the replacement cost will reimburse policy-holders for the actual cost of the property at the time of the loss. Highly expensive items such as jewelry and antique should be declared at the time of purchase as separate policies or rider policies might need to be issued for these items. If highly expensive items are not declared, the policy-holder will not be able to recover the possible losses pertaining to these items. It is wise to inventory all the belongings to ensure adequate compensation for loss. The inventory should include the value and serial number of every item. Policy-holders should also keep the receipts of expensive items in another place, preferably outside of the house to ensure proper documentation and safekeeping. If the dwelling becomes uninhabitable due to a burst pipe or a fire, the insurance policy will pay for additional living expenses. Certain types of rented property have additional benefits. Condominium units usually come with a waterbed liability provision so that in the event that a waterbed bursts, the policy will cover the water damage caused to the unit under the policy-holder’s package. In terms of pets, there are insurance providers that do not underwrite renters policies for customers owning certain dog breeds. A renters insurance policy is an effective way of protecting the property and its occupants from unforeseen expenses. Paying for the rent might take its toll on a person’s purse and making sure that no additional and unexpected expense comes one’s way to add more financial burden would be a wise move.

College Roommates: Pros and Cons
College Roommates: Pros and Cons Author: Zack Fair Living with a roommate can be a very rewarding experience. It can also have some drawbacks if you and your roommate get off on the wrong foot. In college, most freshmen students are required to live in dorms on campus and have no say in choosing their roommates. Later, they may have their pick of roommates as they finish school or when they are out and starting work. Making a roommate relationship work starts with yourself and then getting know your roommate and his or her tastes and dislikes. A roommate contract is also beneficial in any roommate situation because it will list what each thinks is important as well as any rules for the living area. In college, as freshmen, you are told who your roommate will be and you make the best that you can. You only get to change roommates if you each have irrevocable differences. However, minor differences can easily be cleared up if you both have open minds and want to make the relationship work. Treating one another as you would want to be treated is the biggest thing that you can do. Also, remembering that your roommate may be just as insecure and uncomfortable as you in the beginning, can also help. After that first year of college, it is easier to live with roommates – and getting to choose who you want to live with can make the experience even more fun. Living with friends you have already made will be a lot different than when you had lived with a complete stranger the year before. Aside from already knowing you get along, you will more than likely share some of the same classes with your friends, making it easier to study with someone in your own personal environment. Again, though , a roommate agreement could be beneficial and help to avoid any arguments that you and your roommate may have. Just because the two of you get along well as friends, does not mean that you will make great roommates because everyone has different living styles and preferences. Roommates who also work either work at the same job or met after one rented the apartment and decided that a roommate would be beneficial in helping with rent and other living costs. Co-workers generally have the ability to carpool back and forth to work as well as be compassionate about any problems that may arise at work. Those that work at separate places can have differing work schedules, making it seem like you only share the apartment part time. All in all, whether you choose your roommate or he or she is chosen for you, reminding yourself to make the best of it can go a long way towards keeping the harmony of the shared living quarters. A roommate contract can also help to lay down ground rules that you will each follow and adhere to, preventing a lot of arguments that are prone to happen. An open line of communication is also best when you are living with someone else so that you can talk about any issues as they come up, rather than ignoring them and letting them worsen.
