Making the Most of Your Space in 1 Bedroom Apartments

Living in 1 bedroom apartments can be challenging, especially if you have a lot of stuff. No matter how small your apartment is, you want to ensure that you get the most out of the space you have.

Want to turn your apartment into a cozy living space? Want to avoid feeling cluttered in your home?

If so, continue reading. We’ll discuss 5 tips for getting the most out of your small living area.

1. Master the Art of Concealing

If you can’t outwardly store, conceal! There is nothing worse than having every item on display in a small apartment. Having too many items takes up space and makes your home feel claustrophobic.

To store while concealing:

  • Purchase lidded storage containers
  • Use woven baskets to hold small items
  • Buy furniture with built-in storage such as a bed or ottoman

Concealing allows you to have all of your stuff without crowding your home.

2. Make Every Piece Matter

With small areas, every item in your home needs to count. Buy furnishings that not only look nice but are functional.

Instead of buying one big coffee table, purchase two small round tables. Smaller items are easier to move. They also provide more room for traffic flow.

Buy a couch that pulls out into a sleep sofa. This gives you a much-needed couch while offering another sleeping space.

3. Go Vertical

In 1 bedroom apartments, storage can be a huge issue. Chances are you have a small closet for your clothes and nothing else.

If you’ve got a lot of items to store, you’re going to have to get creative.

Is there extra room in your closet for another clothes rack? Is there an empty area in your living room for a vertical shelf?

Find empty spaces where you can add shelving. Check above doorways and cabinets.

Use a vertical bookcase as a divider between your bedroom and living room.

4. Use Double-Duty Solutions

With a 1 bedroom area, double-duty solutions are a must. Figure out ways that you can use the same area for various purposes.

Use your bedroom area as a place to sleep and to work. Purchase a dining room table with an added leaf for hosting dinner get-togethers.

Determine what tasks you need to accomplish and figure out how to make them one.

5. Declutter

We all have items that are personal and important to us. But, if you want to live happily in 1 bedroom apartments, you need to declutter and reduce.

When unpacking your stuff, ask yourself if you really need every item. If you don’t, you can hold onto it and place it into storage.

You can also consider selling items online to put some extra money in your pocket.

Find Independence in 1 Bedroom Apartments

Are you a college student looking to avoid dorm life? Are you a growing professional who wants to enjoy the freedom of renting an apartment?

If so, consider moving into Montrose Square Apartments. We offer several floor layouts that provide the space and amenities you need.

From 2 bedroom apartments to studios, we have the living area that’s right for you.

Ready to soak in the independence of living on your own? If so, don’t wait any longer!

The Best Apartments in Fort Wayne Have These 5 Amenities

What you buy when you rent an apartment is more than just a roof over your head. It’s a worry-free space.

You know that when the heater goes out, there’s someone on hand to fix it. If the roof leaks, it’s not your responsibility. And you’ll always have a shoveled driveway in the winter.

People who rent instead of own a house do so because of the freedom it affords them. So, if you’ve decided to rent an apartment, you most likely have a list of pertinent amenities.

We’ve put together a list of what the best apartments in Fort Wayne can offer. Scroll further to find out.

1. The Best Apartments Keep Out the Heat (And The Cold)

Eastern Indiana summers are muggy and hot. If you’re stuck in a building that includes no air conditioning, you know what sleepless nights in Fort Wayne are like.

Then the snow piles up and the late winter brings freezing rain. You really don’t want to brave those fridged northern winters without a furnace.

Fortunately, apartments exist that include an HVAC machine in every unit. And the most you’ll be responsible for is a filter every few months (maybe).

2. Take Out the Trash But Let The Robot Do the Dishes

While it would be nice if the best apartments included some sort of robot maid, we’re just not there yet. But they do include the next best thing.

Dishwashers aren’t a guaranteed amenity in every apartment complex. Sometimes you have to do your own dishes.

And if you’re not the type to own only one set of dishes per individual, then dishes pile up quickly in the sink.

And if you dislike having to drive across town to do your laundry, you’ll want to search for an apartment with a washer and dryer in the unit. Sure, some complexes include coin-op units in some back basement room. But the best ones include a washer and dryer in the unit itself.

3. The Pets Deserve a Place Too

You’ll be hard pressed to find a place that will let you keep your pet tiger. But a small cat or dog doesn’t do much damage. And besides, they won’t eat the neighbors if they escape.

The best apartments understand this. And despite a small pet fee, you’ll be much happier if your little puffball doesn’t have to go stay with your aunt for the next few years.

In fact, residents who keep pets tend to be happier individuals.

4. Emergency Maintenance At All Hours

When a pipe bursts and your bathroom is flooded, you can’t wait until the next morning. And it would be disastrous for the owners of your building if a fix waited until dawn.

This is why it’s extremely important you pick an apartment complex that offers 24-hour emergency maintenance. You’re paying good money to live in an apartment. The least they could do is fix your emergency maintenance situation.

5. A Place to Store Your Things

Many apartments don’t have closets or storage space. If you don’t have a place to put your things, where do they go? In your car?

The best apartments include some sort of storage facility.

Our apartments include an attic storage space along with plenty of closets. If you’re looking for an apartment with all these amenities and more, contact us for information on how to apply.

Beginner’s Guide: Creating a Spending Plan

spending plan

Living on your own for the first time is exciting. You finally get to make your own choices about what you pay for, what you don’t, how you manage your kitchen, and more.

However, being a first-time renter also involves controlling your spending. It’s too easy to buy things, subscribe to services, eat out, and incur dozens of other expenses. It can spiral out of control quickly.

To keep things under control, you need a spending plan. It may sound restrictive but look at it this way. Having financial peace of mind will give you the ability to have more fun with spending money because you’re not living in fear of accidentally spending the rent.

Here’s how to create a spending plan you can live with.

Write Down Your Essentials

There are certain things you need even if you’re taking Lyft to work and eating peanut butter sandwiches every day. These should be top priorities in your spending plan.

Here are some examples:

  • Rent
  • Electric bill
  • Water bill
  • Home gas bill
  • A basic low-cost phone service, perhaps prepaid
  • Groceries

These are the things you need to simply live. Everything else can go if it needs to. There are always other options.

Knowing your real essential bills can help you realize that life is more affordable than you think. If you know what the essentials are, you can make sure to pay those no matter what.

Record Second-Tier Essentials

Second-tier essentials are things that many people call essentials but aren’t necessary to survive. They are financial responsibilities and things that make life a lot better when you have them.

Your second-tier essentials will depend on your lifestyle, but may include:

  • School loans
  • Savings for emergencies and retirement
  • A car, car insurance, and gasoline
  • Renter’s insurance
  • Internet access
  • Netflix, Hulu, or other television or entertainment
  • A cell phone

List “Nice to Have Expenses”

“Nice to have” expenses are things you enjoy, but can be the first to go when money gets tight. They include entertainment options, subscriptions, and more.

Some “nice to have” expenses you might budget for are:

  • Going out with friends
  • Magazine or online subscriptions
  • Gym memberships
  • Extra channels on television
  • Eating out
  • Shopping for clothes
  • Apartment decor

Once you have your expenses prioritized into essentials, second-tier essentials, and “nice to have,” you’re ready to set up your spending plan.

Creating the Spending Plan

At the top of a spreadsheet or sheet of paper, record your monthly income. Below that, list your essentials, the date they are due, and how much is due.

You probably have some money left over. Now it’s time to add in the appropriate second-tier essentials. If you hit your monthly income in the process, you know exactly what you can currently afford.

If you still have money in the budget, add in some “nice to have” expenses. By tracking how much money you spend – or better yet, using cash you set aside in advance – you can enjoy these activities without overspending.

If you find that your income can’t accommodate everything you need or want, you’ll want to get creative about increasing your income. Many people have side hustles that can put extra money in your pocket even if you’re working full-time.

The 5 Essential Apartment Decor Pieces You Need

apartment decor

It’s a good time to be a renter in America, and even more so in Fort Wayne, the country’s cheapest place to live.

Time was, the dream of every young person was to get married and buy a home as soon as they entered adulthood. In fact, home ownership is at a 50-year low, despite the fact that the housing market has bounced back from its late-2000s crash. More and more, though, the under 30 crowd is putting off that decision till later.

Apartment Decor Makes a House a Home

Part of it is the freedom, financially and geographically, that comes with renting, but they also enjoy the sense of community they get from being part of a whole. Renting is no longer just a place for you and your stuff: thanks to designer apartment decor, the modern renter has learned how to make a rental a real home.

Here are five essential pieces of apartment decor that are inexpensive, make a statement — and can be packed at a moment’s notice!

1. The Wall of Art

Posters, prints, and artwork can transform any blank space into a personal statement, and chances are you’ll have at least one giant blank wall in even a studio apartment.

Design experts say a series of small pieces that complement each other in some way is better than one large painting. Make sure the frames compliment each other as well.

Turn one whole side of your apartment into a gallery and watch visitors take notice.

2. Custom Lighting Fixtures

Your apartment or condo can come with any type of lighting: modern or classic, minimal or ornate. Guess what? You don’t have to be shackled by it. Use a series of smaller lights — lamps, pendants, sconces, lanterns, track lighting, even candles — to create a warm and inviting mood.

You can even experiment with replacing fixtures on the lights that are already installed… just make sure you know your landlord’s rules before changing anything.

3. Green Solutions

No, not eco-friendly ones — although those are fine, too. We’re talking about cleaning the air the old-fashioned way, with living plants. Hanging ferns make any apartment feel more lived-in, but don’t ignore some other less standard options, like the baby cactus on your countertop or the imposing rubber plant in your foyer.

4. Mirror Magic

Mirrors are not only cheap ways to spruce up a dull wall, hallway, or door. They also help make your apartment seem and feel bigger and more inviting! Experiment with different types of glass (marbled, painted) and also with the frames themselves, which are as adaptable and distinctive as any painting.

Reclaim an antique find, or have one custom made for any room in the house.

5. The Signature Piece

Minimalism is usually the rule these days when it comes to apartments, but nothing says you can’t have one conversation starter.

A chaise lounge, a reupholstered loveseat, a series of designer ottomans, or a handcrafted coffee table complete with interesting books… one, and usually only one, signature piece and your main room will draw the eye in and claim the apartment as your space.

Stylish Apartment Decor: The Modern Renter’s Secret

You too can join the movement and create your own small but functional home inside an apartment.

No mortgage or housing bubbles to worry about, plus all the creature comforts of a real home… apply here today and then get to work personalizing your new digs!

5 Helpful Tips For A First Time Renter

first apartment

Making the move into your first apartment can be an exciting experience. You’re on your own and can eat cookies for breakfast and chips in bed because no one is there to tell you otherwise. But as a first-time renter, there are some things to be aware of before you settle down in the apartment of your dreams.

Here are a few tips to avoid getting stuck:

1. Getting Through the Application

A first-time renter should expect to fill out an application for a potential apartment. This usually includes a background and credit check, and you will need to pay for the cost. Most application fees run between $30 and $50, depending on where you live. If you’ve found the perfect place to rent, it’s a good idea to fill out your application and pay the fees as soon as possible — even the same day. Many times, landlords will rent an apartment or house based on who turned in their application first.

If your credit score isn’t up to par, that’s OK. Most leasing agents allow renters to have a co-signer, who will sign the lease with you and is responsible if you don’t pay your rent for any reason.

2. Add in All of Your Costs

When you’re renting your first place, it’s important to know how much you can afford. That includes all of the additional costs that come with living on your own. In addition to the application fee, expect to put down a security deposit and sometimes the first and last month’s rent, which protects the landlord in case you damage the apartment or move out early.

Other costs to add to your apartment budget worksheet include:

  • Utilities. Every lease is different, so you’ll have to check to see what is included in your agreement. Some contracts pay for water and trash, while others include electricity.
  • Renter’s insurance. Many landlords require their tenants to have this coverage, and it also provides peace of mind. This protects your belongings in the case of a disaster such as a fire.
  • Pet deposit. If your lease allows pets, most landlords require a pet deposit to cover any potential damage to the property. In some places, there is an extra fee each month in addition to the deposit, but you’ll need to budget for this if you’re bringing your four-legged companion with you.

3. Pay Attention to Your Lease

A lease may be the first legal document a first-time renter encounters. It’s important to read through it carefully so you know what to expect. If there’s anything you don’t understand, get someone else to look over it with you. Make sure the move in and move out dates are clearly specified, and make sure you understand any restrictions in your lease, such as noise, visitors, roommates, and pets. Your lease should outline everything you need to know before you move in, including any potential fees or consequences of breaking the lease.

4. Do a Walk-Through

Before you sign on the dotted line, do a thorough walk-through of your new apartment. Keep an eye out for damages or anything that doesn’t work — not just how you will lay out your new digs.

It’s in your best interest to take pictures and give a dated copy to your landlord so there’s no discretion when you move out and ask for your security deposit back.

5. Know Your Rights

Renters’ rights are different in every state, but it’s important for you to know what you’re responsible for versus what is your landlord’s obligation.

For example, if something breaks, usually the landlord is required to fix it. But how long do they have, and what will you do in the meantime if it’s a serious situation? Will you be reimbursed if you incur out-of-pocket expenses?

Knowing your rights ahead of time will give you an advantage if something does go wrong.

First Time Renter

When you’re ready to find your first apartment, being prepared can help you land the perfect apartment.

Apartment Guide: 6 Ways to Create an Eco-Friendly Home

Apartment Guide

Looking for a way to make your apartment or home eco-friendly? There are many ways to make your living space greener, no matter how small it is. The good news is that you can live sustainably in your home without having to stretch your wallet or move to the countryside.

We’ve compiled your Green Apartment Guide, which compiles six best methods of putting the eco in your friendly apartment home.

Apartment Guide: 6 Ways to Create an Eco-Friendly Home

1. Think air.

The first step is to maximize air circulation and quality in your apartment or home.

  • Install ceiling fans in order to improve air circulation and minimize energy use.
  • Set up an air purifier that specifically removes pollutants from the air.
  • De-clutter and organize your living space to maximize air circulation.

2. Choose energy-efficient, sustainable light.

This is at the top of the list for your apartment guide to living greener. A lot of older apartments and homes rely on less energy-efficient bulbs and lighting systems that end up using a lot of energy.

Choosing CFL or LED lights are the way to go in terms of getting the greenest light possible. Replace as many of your existing bulbs with these energy-efficient lights. Although LED lights can be expensive, they may even save you money over time due to their high performance and overall efficiency.

3. Maximize your water usage.

  • Long showers can be luxurious, but these can add up. Consider buying a shower head with a low-flow option.
  • Turn off the sink when you are brushing your teeth.
  • Investigate your toilet’s flush system. If it’s not already a dual flush system, check with your leasing office to get permission to install a dual flush converter.

4. Take charge of the heat!

  • It’s easy to waste a lot of energy by keeping a thermostat on or forgetting to turn it off when you leave the home. See if you can schedule your thermostat to come on and off at certain times.
  • On a related note, invest in a power strip in order to maximize your energy use. Unplug appliances when they are not in use, and turn off lights when you leave a room.
  • Call your utility company and see if they have an “eco” option. Consider enrolling in whatever green program they may offer.

5. Check what’s under the kitchen sink.

This is an important aspect of your apartment guide to greener living. A lot of household cleaning supplies use harsh chemicals that are not friendly to the environment, especially if they involve a lot of waste. Invest in sustainable, eco-friendly cleaning supplies that are biodegradable or composed of natural materials.

If you can replace everything under your sink with eco-friendly products, you are already taking a step towards your health and a greener home.

6. Make sure your home or apartment is leak-free.

Most homeowners or renters aren’t aware of how much energy can be wasted through leaks in windows, doors, and walls. Make sure that all cracks in windows and doors are sealed or caulked and make sure the sealant or caulk is environmentally-friendly as well!

Conclusion

This six-step apartment guide to living greener can be applied to any home.

Remember that the first step in making your home eco-friendly is the conscious choice to live green wherever you are at!

5 Reasons Why Renting Is Better Than Buying

Renting

It’s official! 2017 is the year of the renter. And if you agree with The New York Times that this is your year to become a renter, you’ll find that making the choice between renting and buying isn’t always as simple as a news headline makes it sound. Before you sign on any dotted lines, read on to learn why paying a rent over a mortgage may be right for you.

Choices, Choices, Choices

A house is like a Redwood. It’s planted pretty firmly in the ground, and you either take it as it is or you leave it.

If you prefer to have more options when choosing where to live, such as location, building type, and amenities, renting could be the perfect match. When you rent, everything is a possibility. You simply keep combing through the listings until you find one that matches as closely or perfectly as your dream living situation.

When You Gotta Go…

Congratulations! You just got into medical school. Or met the love of your life. Or got the job of your dreams. Only problem? They’re all the way across the country and they need you there NOW. When you’re renting, that’s hardly a problem. The worst thing you’ll encounter is having to break a lease (usually loss of the equivalent of one month’s rent).

When you own a home, your roots are as firmly planted as a tree. You’ve got to sell and let’s face it, this isn’t a great time for home sales.

Can you risk missing out on school, love, jobs? Times are so uncertain, so the fluidity of being a renter just works with our shifting world.

Renting: The Newest Social Network?

While it’s true that many larger apartment communities do have some form of intranet or online group for residents, we don’t mean to say that rentals are going to surpass Facebook or Instagram.

But, renters often get to enjoy a bit of community in their neighborhood. Depending on where you move in, you may find activities like:

  • Pizza parties
  • Pool events
  • Movie nights
  • Holiday parties and giveaways
  • Message boards to advertise (or respond to) babysitting, adoptable pets, and walking partners

Papers and Signing and Checks, Oh My!

Quick show of hands: How many of us have known people who moved into apartments on the same day they rented them? Yep, almost everyone.

You really can’t do that with a house. There’s the whole thing of “escrow,” which involves a lot of time sitting around a table with lots of lawyers, lots of papers to sign, and lots of checks.

Despite how ready you are and if all your boxes are packed, there are things like inspections, evaluations, property and deed transfers, and so much more that goes into owning a home.

Buying is not a quick process. Becoming a renter, though, can be.

You Can Do So Much with So Little

So you’ve gotten bit by the small space living bug. Who hasn’t?! But so much of the glory has gone to the small space home kits, which you have to buy, build, and then you own.

Well, guess what?

You can still enjoy the benefits of renting when you rent small. In fact, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology calls small apartment spaces the “Apartment of the Future.” And because this is your space, you get to decide what to do with it. Take advantage of some of the super trendy tricks out there to make your space look huge or keep it as cozy as you prefer.

Get Ready to Rent!

Now you know why so many people choose to rent an apartment vs buying a home. Ready to sign your lease on the dotted line? Great! We are available to help and answer questions about rentals at any time. Get in touch with us. You can send us a form, email, call, or even fill out a rental application. We hope to have you in an apartment soon!
