5 summer apartment improvement tips

Don’t let the humid August heat fool you; summer is quickly winding to a close. And as we all know, Chicago autumns and winters can come on quickly. So now is the time to start thinking about those last summer apartment improvement projects that will keep your Chicago apartment cozy and chic during the chillier months.

  1. Clean out storage. You know that closet, garage or pantry that is the final resting place for junk? Thinning out unneeded storage can help give a small one bedroom or studio apartment a bit more breathing room.
  1. Wash the windows. A summer’s worth of sediment can leave windows looking dull and dusty. Show off your view by cleaning both the inside and out before winter snows make it impossible.
  1. Add art. Take all those great photos you have from summer picnics, Air and Water Show outings and family vacations and turn them into a conversation piece. Buy cheap frames from thrift shops or discount stores and install them yourself to add a little interest to bare walls.
  1. Create a home office. Are there cluttered papers, pens and mail all over your dining room table? Check garage sales for old desks that could use a fresh coat of paint or resale office filing cabinets—with a little organization, you can create a functional home office and actually be able to use your dining room table for dinner!
  1. Add greenery. Spring is the traditional time to plant, but in the late summer, you can add potted house plants and live kitchen herbs that will keep your one bedroom, two bedroom or three bedroom South Side apartment looking green—and smelling fresh—all winter long.

These are just a few simple apartment improvement ideas to get your South Shore apartment ready for the chillier months. For more ideas or to find convenient and affordable cheap rent apartments in Chicago, visit Pangea Real Estate today!
