Tips on Making Your Apartment Feel Like Home

Living in a rental apartment is a dream! You have a new space of your own and now you’re able to add a touch of you to it. We all want to feel comfort and ease when we return home at the end of the day, and feeling at home is important regardless of whether you plan to stay for a year or ten years. Here are a few things you can do to make your space feel like home!

Decorate Your Space

The easiest way to feel at home in any space is to make it your own. Unpack your boxes, get your decorations up on the wall and start to feel it come together. Speak with your property manager to find out what’s allowed and then jazz things up a little with changes like new curtains, new hardware or even removable wallpaper. Hang wall art, add curtains, get a few plants and make your apartment the space you want to come back to every evening. 

Add and Arrange Furniture

Sometimes a solution to help make your apartment feel more like home is to add or arrange furniture. Maybe your space is missing something and you just can’t put your finger on what it may be. Try adding an accent chair or rearranging the furniture you already have in a different way. Adding a subtle piece of furniture in the corner of a room or simply swapping the couch and recliner can make an immediate and noticeable difference.

Get a Pet

If you’re a pet person, having a pet can be a great way to feel more at home in your space. Pets bring life and comfort to a home and they will always be there to greet you at the end of a long day. South Pointe Apartments and Homes is a pet-friendly property and we even have a pet park for your four-legged friend to run and play. Afterall, having a pet to come home to after a long day can definitely change the atmosphere of your home! Talk to us about our pet policy beforehand to ensure you’re able to follow our guidelines to having a pet in your home.

Learn About Your Community 

If you’re living in a new town, or even a new part of town, it’s good to learn about your community. Explore the neighborhood by meeting your neighbors and the community around you to help yourself feel more at home. Try out amenities or even follow your community on Facebook to stay informed. South Pointe Apartments and Homes offers a new Resident Portal to help you get accommodated in the community. Finding local places to shop, eat, drink and hang out will help you create a sense of belonging and comfort in your new space. Try visiting the local coffee shops, finding a farmers market or getting involved in community events. Regardless of how long you live in a town, you can feel more at home by living like a local instead of a tourist. 

South Pointe Apartments and Homes offers rental homes and apartments. We are located in a prime location at 679 East Michigan Ave. in Foley, Alabama. To schedule a tour of our community give us a call at (251) 971-3800 or visit our website
