Would you like your apartment to feel more open and spacious? Inefficient organization can make even the most beautiful apartment feel cramped and stuffy. The following are five, cost-free tips that will help you create and maintain your ideal Phoenix apartment home.
- Toss and Donate
Getting rid of unused or unwanted items doesn’t have to mean becoming an extreme minimalist, although we can learn something from this philosophy. First, tidy up any magazines or books lying around and clean any dishes piling up in the sink. Next, go through each closet, drawer, and cabinet and decide what items you no longer use or need. Make a toss pile and a donate pile. Throw away or recycle everything in your toss pile and donate clothing and other items that can be reused to second-hand shops.
Ridding your apartment of unnecessary things will allow it to feel more spacious, creating a relaxed and healthy atmosphere.
- Minimize Your Cleaning Products
It’s easy to accumulate a collection of cleaning products, but are they all necessary? To maintain a clean apartment, you don’t need a ton of different types of cleaners and gadgets. Look through your household products and discard any that you don’t use. We recommend sticking to eco-friendly cleaners as they are not only healthier for the environment, but also for you and your family. This is especially important for apartments in Phoenix, as we spend a lot of time in air conditioning with the windows closed during the hotter months.
- Organize Your Home Office
During this time, many of us are working from home. Maintaining an organized workspace, without the distraction of clutter is essential for productivity. Devoting a space in your apartment to only work-related items will help you stay focused and avoid scattering work papers and documents throughout other parts of your home.
- Repurpose Extra Space
Have a closet or cabinet filled with junk or one that you don’t use at all? Bring more organization to your apartment by repurposing that extra space. Toss or donate anything hanging out in the closet or cabinet that you don’t use. Utilizing storage space efficiently will help you maintain organization and keep your living spaces tidy, making them feel more open and spacious.
- Maintain a Breathable Environment
The benefits of fresh air are often underestimated. Proper ventilation is essential for our physical and mental health. We spend a good amount of time with the windows closed and the air conditioning running in our Phoenix Apartments. For this reason, it is important to set aside a time of day to bring in fresh air. Indoor air is often more contaminated with pollutants than outdoor air. Open windows first thing in the morning, or late in the evening during the hotter months to circulate the air in your apartment.
