How To Maximize Storage Space
No matter where we live,
it always seems a little difficult to get the maximum amount of storage space
we need. It could just take time for us to use all the storage space in our
homes, but once you run out of room, what do you do? Getting the right amount
of storage space is important and even if luxury townhomes
have a few walk-in closets, you can still fill them up to max capacity. However,
check out these tips that can increase your storage space with just a bit of
- Closet: If your closet is packed full of clothes, shoes, hangers
and whatever else you’re trying to store away, consider some nifty closet
organizers. You can get a custom, built-in look with closet organizers from a
department store. They typically require basic tools, but once you have
installed them into your closet, you’ll immediately notice a difference in storage.
They give your closet more dimension and surface area so you can hang your
clothes and put away your shoes without a cluttered look. Also, consider
getting rid of old, unwanted clothes by donating them to a foundation. This
tactic can also free up valuable storage space.
- Under The Bed: If you have a raised bed then you have a perfect
area to store items. You might be thinking that items under your bed will look
unsightly, but, you have to get a little creative with storage bins. You can
find low profile storage bins that can glide right under your bed. Consider
heading to your local IKEA store because they have storage bins that are
perfect for under-the-bed applications.
- Living Room: If you still have a massive amount of overflow items
that you want to store, consider getting a deep storage ottoman. These can be
found at most retailers and serve multiple purposes. They will have hollow
insides where you can place many items and close the lid to have a comfy foot
rest or extra seating space if you need it. None of your friends will know
anything is in the ottoman!
- Kitchen: Your kitchen
can sometimes be the most cramped space in terms of food storage and utensils.
With that being said, you can maximize the space in your kitchen by adding a
low-profile shelving unit that sits about waist high. Like in the picture
above, this shelving unit can have deep pockets where you can place storage
baskets in them to hide grocery
items, kitchen appliances, aluminum foil – the list can go on. While you’re at
it, you can even use the shelving unit as an island or have it up against a
wall for extra counter space.

you start to save space and maximize your storage, you could be increasing your
homes’ aesthetic appeal – making your space more enjoyable!

How To Prepare For A Lease
Congratulations! You’ve decided to look for a
new place to live which is an exciting time in your life. You’ve narrowed down
your search from the numerous luxury
townhomes you’ve looked at and now it’s time to move
forward. With this new change, are you prepared to sign for a lease? Preparing
for a lease can take some time but you should get all your proper documents and
paperwork in order before you sign away. Be sure you have the following things
covered before your lease starts:
Insurance. If you haven’t had renters insurance before,
you may want to check some rates for the specific place you have in mind.
Renters insurance is more than likely a must-have requirement in the lease
agreement you are looking at. This type of insurance will cover any damages
that may occur during your occupancy. Also, if you were to experience a loss of
some sort, like a natural disaster, the insurance will be able to replace the
things that were damaged.
Deposit. Many times you will come across a lease
agreement that requires some type of money up front. This is very typical when
looking at townhomes, apartments and anywhere else that requires a lease. They
may range from a nominal fee to upwards of a month or two’s rent. Don’t be
discouraged if you face such a situation because these types of deposits are
looking out for the landlord’s property. Just be ready to have some type of
money set aside specifically for a deposit if needed.
Check. In addition to the security deposit, some
leases will require a credit check before the process can be finished. With
that being said, make sure you monitor your credit score and fix any problems
it may have. This will increase your odds of securing a new place!
Providers. Once you have the above checked out and in
line, you should begin to look for service providers in the area you are moving
to. Do you want TV cable service and internet? Hunt around online to find the
best provider with the best deal to fit your budget.
5. Utilities. Often times, you will need to put various utilities in your name like
electric, gas and water before you officially move in. Be sure you find out
what companies manage those utilities and set up the accounts to begin service
on the day you move in so you can have those amenities active.
After you have everything ready to go for your
lease, you can continue preparing for the move. Don’t forget to furnish your
new luxury townhome so you can start living comfortably!
Tip: Make sure you measure your new place to
ensure your furniture will fit. Take measurements of the entryways, stairwells,
hallways and tight corners!

City Living Without the City Price
Imagine living in an area that can put your
within minutes of the Manhattan Financial District and close by to numerous
entertainment attractions in New York. In an ideal world, you could have all
that within a stone’s throw for a price that isn’t as high as the Empire State
Building. Well that lifestyle can easily be fulfilled by living in luxury
apartments in North Jersey.
Nothing beats location and nothing can beat price
which is why choosing to live in luxury apartments in North Jersey is your best
option for close proximity to Manhattan. Choosing apartments in towns like
Edison, South Plainfield and even in New Brunswick all provide easy access to
major highways and offer prime locations. What interesting is that Manhattan
has a population of about 1.6 million people and during the weekdays about the
same amount of people commute from outside the city to work, doubling the
amount of people! Also, Manhattan draws in more commuters than any other county
in the country. According to the NY Times, nearly 400,000 of those commuters
are from New Jersey.
There’s an apparent reason why all those people
don’t live in Manhattan and that could simply be because of price. The cost of
living in Manhattan is notoriously higher than surrounding areas and the
reasons are apparent - it’s one of the biggest cities in the world! However,
when you live in North Jersey you don’t have to worry about higher living costs
and hard to find parking spots. Luxury apartments in North Jersey are far
enough away when you need a break from the buzz across the water but close
enough to be within minutes of the city.
Another benefit of living in North Jersey is that
you get more bang for your buck. Who wouldn’t want top-notch features, a prime
location and a comfortable living style? Whether you work in Manhattan or you
are just looking to explore the city on a regular basis, consider picking a
place in North Jersey to fit your needs.
