Three tips for better apartment living

Feb 20, 2014

During a long and cold winter like this one, we bet you’re spending a lot more time at home in your Windsor apartment. Make the most of your time at home and improve your living space with these tips.

Spruce up the place

Tidying up and enhancing your home’s décor and atmosphere is a great place to begin. Start by getting rid of old clothing, toys, kitchen appliances, and other items that you no longer use. It’s a good idea to donate these items to your favourite local charity or thrift shop. Why not do some good while also improving your space? Once you have a nice clutter-free home to work with, decorating becomes not only easy but lots of fun. Let your creative juices flow.

Keep your finances in check

Having full control of your finances is a very liberating experience, but getting started can be daunting. Try setting a household budget and sticking to it. This is useful for singles, couples, and entire families. Creating a budget can allow you to get your savings in order, pay off debt and expenses, as well as allowing you and your family to make long-term monetary decisions. Other ways of achieving a more economical apartment include conducting an energy audit, going ‘green’ wherever possible, and eating in more often. Many of Timbercreek’s Windsor apartments, including our 1170 Lauzon Road and 450 Victoria Avenue residences offer a variety of easy payment choices such as pre-authorized, debit, online banking, cheque, and money order options.

Utilize your apartment facilities

Timbercreek’s Windsor apartments offer some great complimentary amenities for our residents so you don't have to brave the cold in order to get things done. Our 1400 Ouellette Avenue apartments offer laundry facilities, on-site building management, and even a social/party room. Every apartment renter can seriously benefit from understanding his or her apartment’s building policies and procedures, and Timbercreek’s on-site management team can help with any of your questions and inquiries.
