The start of a new year is a perfect time to reevaluate things in your life and make resolutions to improve your health and lifestyle or simply do something new. As an apartment renter at The Apartments of Wildewood community, there are several resolutions you can make to make your renting experience even better than before. If you’re ready for the new year, consider the New Year’s resolutions for renters regarding home decor, green living, budgeting, and community living.
Personalize Your Space
Make Your Home Uniquely Yours
Renting doesn’t mean you have to settle for bland. This year, transform your rental into a vibrant reflection of your unique style. Finally hang up that gallery wall of artwork, and add pops of color with new throw blankets or pillows. Even making small changes like adding rugs or lampshades can alter the vibe of your home and make it feel uniquely yours.
Make Smart Decorating Choices
Consider investing in multi-functional furniture, like a sofa bed or storage ottoman, to maximize your space. Add indoor plants to add color and improve air quality to your home.
One of the most impactful New Year’s resolutions for renters is committing to a sustainable lifestyle. Begin this journey by replacing traditional light bulbs with energy-efficient LEDs, using reusable shopping bags, and regularly recycling.
Add More Plants
Add a small herb garden to your kitchen or balcony to grow your own herbs and seasonings. Use eco-friendly cleaning products to minimize your exposure to harsh chemicals. Also, adding numerous house plants can improve air quality and enhance your home’s aesthetics.
Create a Budget
Renting often entails managing a budget. If you haven’t already, gain more control over your finances by creating a comprehensive budget that accounts for rent, utilities, and other living expenses. Identify and reduce unnecessary spending, such as unused subscriptions or frequent dining out.
Embrace Smart Savings
Start building an emergency fund or save money for the future. Even modest amounts saved consistently can accumulate over time, creating a substantial financial cushion.
Be a Model Renter
Build Positive Relationships
New Year’s resolutions for renters may include how they benefit from their apartment community. Building a positive relationship with your landlords and neighbors can enhance your renting experience. Ensure timely rent payments, adhere to lease terms, and communicate openly. Greet your neighbors and participate in community events to create a positive environment.
Respect Your Community
Take pride in your rental community by keeping common areas clean, being mindful of noise levels, participating in community events, and volunteering for neighborhood initiatives.
