Home is Where the Heart Is: 8 Ways to Love Your San Antonio Apartment

(July 28, 2016)

Love-Your-Apartment-SA.jpgOur Springs San Antonio luxury apartment homes come complete with decorator touches such as crown molding, hardwood-style flooring and spacious walk-in closets. These features form the perfect canvas for stamping your home with your unique personality.

Here are some of our favorite tips for turning your apartment into a home you will cherish.

1. Create a Sanctuary

If home is indeed your castle, design a bed chamber fit for royalty.

  • Purchase the highest thread-count sheets you can afford.
  • Add soft, cozy blankets and comforters along with plenty of fluffy pillows.
  • Stick with neutral colors that will provide a soothing, restful ambiance.
  • Place scented candles or bowls of fragrant potpourri around the room.
  • Decorate the walls with favorite artwork or framed photographs.
2. Rotate Accessories

When you're ready for a change, there's no need to invest in more furniture. Use accessories such as throw pillows and blankets, candles and vases, or even lampshades to get a whole new look. Change with the seasons or with your mood.

3. Dine In

Many of our fondest memories revolve around food, either as the main event or a backdrop. Few things add domestic warmth to a home like sharing a meal at the dining table. Cooking at home also creates delightful aromas to whet your appetite.

4. Entertain Family and Friends

Welcoming loved ones to your home is a great way to add a personal touch. Plan events based on your preferences for style and level of preparation, whether it's an elaborate dinner party or a casual get-together for pizza, beer and the big game.

5. Avoid Clutter

It's hard to maintain a comfortable, cozy feel when you're surrounded by stacks of magazines, piles of outdated clothes or useless tchotchkes. Keep your surroundings as uncluttered as possible. Taking just a few minutes every other day or so is much easier than letting it build up to an all-day job.

6. Deck the Walls

Hang colorful tapestries or fabrics for a paint-free method of "changing" the wall color.  

7. Adopt a Pet

Even if you live with family or roommates, the unconditional love and companionship a pet offers is truly heartwarming. Our pet-friendly Springs San Antonio communities accept a wide variety of animals, including several larger dog breeds.

8. Join the Neighborhood

It's more satisfying to put down roots when you feel like you're part of a larger community. With our on-site amenities such as 24-hour fitness centers, resort-style pools and leash-free dog parks, there are a number of opportunities to meet your neighbors and make friends. Our Springs management teams also stage lively resident events for holidays, special occasions or just because!
