Mt. Arlington, New Jersey is a great place to live. Between the great activities, restaurants, entertainment, and nearby towns, there’s always something to do.

Quick Fixes for Your Apartment in 2017
1. Improve Your Apartment’s Air
Start your resolutions off right by improving your most basic necessity – your air! During the winter, the cold evaporates moisture in the air outside, while heating systems do the same indoors. The resulting complications can mean dry mouth and eyes and aggravated sinuses. Investing in a humidifier will cure these issues, plus keep your skin hydrated, reduce infections, and aid your body in any recovery.
The warmer months bring new hurdles. For allergy sufferers, investing in a quality HEPA filter system will mitigate issues such as mold, pet dander, pollen, and dust mites. Improving you air quality will have a significant impact on your health.
2. Store Your Seasonal Clothes
Be realistic. Are you going to wear shorts during the winter in New Jersey? How about that beloved skirt or short-sleeved button-down? When the summer comes, how often are you going to need a cable-knit sweater, snow pants, or a parka? Keep your life organized and reduce closet clutter by putting away seasonal clothes. It’s a small but effective way to keep your stress levels low. If you need extra storage space, don’t forget Woodmont West has storage units available for our residents.
3. Change Your Apartment’s Décor with the Season
If you enjoyed decorating your apartment, why only do it once? Changing with the seasons will give you a fun activity to do at home four times a year. It doesn’t have to be a major overhaul either. Small little details will come together to change your apartment’s atmosphere, keeping your space feeling fresh year-round.
Winter blankets and linens are not only practical; they provide easy and effective ornamentation around the apartment. During the spring, consider switching out window dressings for something more sheer, taking advantage of the added natural light. In the fall, something as small as collecting fallen leaves can look attractive as a centerpiece. The beauty is in the details! Use your imagination and most of all, enjoy the process, don’t stress.
4. Replace and Streamline Your Kitchenware
Over time, we accumulate far too many pots, pans, and appliances. How many of these are you regularly using? Do you have a collection of knives that you can’t remember their function? The kitchen has become more specialized over the years, but the reality is most good chefs can make do with three to four pots and saucepans (of different sizes), a couple of skillets, a great chef knife, and a couple of multi-function appliances. Be realistic about what you use, and get rid of the rest. Feel free to use this as a chance to upgrade certain items, but the goal will be to make the kitchen more navigable.
5. Regularly Play Host to Friends and Family
What’s the point of having a luxurious apartment if you don’t take advantage of it? Isolation can leave you restless and irritable, so make it a goal for 2017 to have as many dinner parties and small gatherings as possible. Whether you host your guests in your apartment or in one of the shared community spaces, you will be building memorable moments with your loved ones.
