You want to decorate your apartment but you don’t want the same as everyone else. Sound familiar? Your not alone. Luckily there are some tips you can utilize to help make your space uniquely yours.

  • Organize by using cube style shelves and you can make them more unique by the types of boxes you put in them. They can be in bold colors or a mix of different styles.
  • Let your furniture work double duty by using a table as both for eating and a desk. It will help you save space and create a unique look to your home.

There are many unique designs you can implement into your Lowell apartments. Follow some of these tips and put your stamp on your space so that people can see your style when they come in. For more decorating suggestions, feel free to contact us at Cabot Crossings Apartments.

5 Tips for Making the Kitchen in Your Lowell Apartment a Zero Waste Kitchen

cooking-1013455_640

One huge advantage we all gain from living in our Lowell apartments is that we can set up a zero-waste kitchen. Here are five tips to get you started.

  • You can regrow some vegetables to reduce waste. For scallions, simply cut off the white ends, put them in a glass of water, place the glass near direct sunlight, and cut off the green ends for your cooking needs.
  • You can reuse your coffee grinds as well. Put them in plant pots to improve plant growth, use them for keeping ants away, or to get rid of smells.
  • Use your orange peels to cancel out musty smells, or grind them up to keep mosquitos and ants away.
  • Use your microwave to freshen up stale chips. Put them on a microwave-safe plate then into the microwave for 10 seconds on full power and you’ll have fresh chips once again.
  • Your microwave can also be used to revive old sponges. Put a wet sponge in the microwave for a few seconds and it will look like new and be 99% germ free.
  • Contact us if you’re looking for apartments in Lowell.

    5 Great Ways to Customize Your Apartment

    cabo

    There’s a common misconception flying around that apartments can’t be customized. Fortunately, with these five tips and more, you can make your home both comfortable and unique to you.

  • Use modular furniture. It not only looks trendy and modern, but in such cases as sectional couches, you can shape it to fit whatever space you need furnished.
  • Fix up your wall-to-wall carpeted areas with bright accents and area rugs. This can change the look of your entire room!
  • Many apartments have neutral tones all across the board, but if yours came with an accent color (like bright green cabinets), work with it. If you can find towels and decorations to match, it gives your apartment a sophisticated feel.
  • You don’t need to remodel to customize your kitchen. A little decoration goes a long way!
  • And don’t forget the most underrated and simple tip of all: Break the blank-wall trend with framed pictures and even artwork. Even if you can’t nail things into the wall, there are plenty of adhesive-based alternatives.

    5 Things to Not Put Down the Garbage Disposal at Your Lowell Apartment

    Protecting your Lowell apartment’s garbage disposal from inadvertent damage will safeguard you from countless plumbing related issues. Here are five items that should never be put down garbage disposals in Lowell Apartments:

    washing-dishes-1112077_1280

    Glass

    Although most glass is brittle enough to easily shatter, it is still hard and sharp; this causes it to chew up your garbage disposal as it tries–and fails–to break the glass down.

    Paper

    Garbage disposals do a poor job of breaking down paper. It just ends up going down the drain mostly intact; this results in drain clogs.

    Fibrous Foods

    When fibrous foods such as celery, corn husks and onion skins are shredded by a garbage disposal, they become strings that tangle and lock up your garbage disposal unit.

    Grease and Oil

    Grease should never be intentionally poured down the drain, even if you have a garbage disposal. The garbage disposal will not break grease down and you will end up a regular grease drain clog.

    Water-Expandable Foods

    Foods like pasta and rice will expand while in your pipes even after they are shredded; this causes clogs.

    Dress Up Your Bedroom

    vintage-635262_1280

    It’s always fun to stay in a nice hotel. From the soft sheets to the plush pillows, you can bring that feeling home with you by doing the following to your Celebration apartments.

    • First, get some art. You want to use the artwork as an anchor for your decor so be sure to choose pieces that will create the overall aesthetic you desire.
    • Next, get a visually appealing headboard. Oversized headboards with colorful, plush coverings, soften the room’s appearance.
    • When it comes to bedding, invest in the best. Soft sheets and fluffy comforters will keep you comfortable and cozy at night. It’s also a wise idea to invest in plenty of soft pillows that you can drift off to dream upon.
    • Finally, bring layered lighting into the equation. A side table with a lamp, a couple of candle holders, and carefully selected light bulbs can help create a soothing, relaxing atmosphere for any occasion.

    We invite you to contact us to learn more about our apartments and the comfortable bedrooms each features. We’ll be happy to give you the details and schedule a time for you to stop by and take a look around our community.

    Starting Your Day Off on the Right Foot

    woman-601568_1920

    There is nothing worse than waking up on the wrong side of the bed, so the key is to try to start your day off right. We have put together several Lowell MA apartment living tips to help you get your day off to a good start.

    • Get Ready The Night Before: Rushing around the apartment and then out the door can put you in a bad mood. Wipe down the kitchen, prepare lunches and laying out clothes the night before can help you get a head start on your morning.
    • Drink Something Warm: A warm beverage, whether it be coffee or tea, can be comforting. This comfortable feeling is sure to put you in a good mood. You can even drink a cup of water before your warm beverage, as this will boost your energy.
    • Start Over: The morning may not go as well as you hope, but the next hour is another opportunity to take a deep breath, recharge your batteries and start over.
