Spring is here, residents! With the warm weather returning, the staff at your apartments in Katy thought now would be a good time to talk about spring cleaning. If you spent the last three months hanging out inside your apartment to avoid chilly weather, it might be time to get organized. There aren’t many feelings better than the feeling of getting rid of things you never use, so if your apartment is feeling a little cramped these days, spend this next weekend getting organized!
In the blog post below, we’ll be talking about four things you can do right now that will help you keep your apartment looking good at all times. Cleaning is a pain, and you don’t want to keep scrambling to clean every time you’re about to have guests over, right? Instead of repeating the in-depth cleaning routine every time, just follow the advice in this week’s blog!

Invest in Vertical Storage
Planning out the furniture and storage space in an apartment is a lot different than planning the layout for a house. Although our apartments are spacious, it’s still important to maximize the space that you have. The most important asset you have in your apartment is floor space, so you need to make sure you’re investing in storage that takes up as little floor space as possible while still giving you ample room to store your stuff.
Whenever you’re buying new shelves for your home, look for tall, narrow pieces. Not only will these draw people’s eyes upwards, but they’ll also take up as little floor space as possible. You should follow the same rule when buying dressers, entertainment stands and end tables. Remember; tall and skinny is good. Short and wide is bad.
Tidy up before you fall asleep
It’s important to develop a bedtime routine so that you can remind your body that it's time to start getting tired. Some people take a hot shower before they go to bed, while others read a book in bed for 20 minutes before turning out the light. Those routines are fine, but if you want to be productive before you fall asleep, consider developing a tidying up routine. It can be a simple routine like wiping down your counters and clearing off your coffee table. All that matters is that you do it every night. You’ll fall asleep faster afterwards, and you’ll wake up to a cleaner home in the morning!
Refuse to leave dishes in your sink
Nothing makes your apartment look dirtier than a messy sink. There’s something about dirty dishes in the sink that can ruin even the tidiest of kitchens. We recommend thinking of dinner as a cycle. Your cycle isn’t complete when you’re done eating — it’s complete when you’ve put your dishes in the dishwasher. If you can think of it that way, you can keep your kitchen looking good at all times.
