Do’s and Don’ts of Apartment Living


Apartment living is a simpler way of living, which translates to a happier, lower-stress life. A simpler lifestyle provides the space to figure out what matters most and the freedom to focus on other things. Here are the do’s and don’ts of apartment living.

Respect thy neighbor

When you first move into your apartment, introduce yourself as soon as you can. Give the new neighbors your phone number. When people make an effort to be a good neighbor by following proper etiquette, everyone will have a sense of well-being, knowing you are all surrounded by friends. Be the person that you’d like to live next door to, whether your neighbors are tenants or homeowners. It’s more than just giving a smile when you run into someone in the hallway. Being a good neighbor, at least when it comes to apartment living, is about residing in your home in such a way that it doesn’t interfere with anyone else. Keep your music at a reasonable level and be mindful of doing your part to keep common areas clean. Be mindful if you borrow anything.

Return the item immediately after using it. If you break the item, pay to fix it or replace it.

Do make the flat into your individual style

Make the most of apartment living by putting your own personality into your unit. The best homes in Trivandrum are well decorated. Buyers are often more attracted to Cordial Homes because the exteriors and interiors are visually appealing and well-maintained. Cordial Homes has an interior designing team that customizes your home the way you want your home to be and as per your design preferences. Other things you can do on your own are planting some greenery, painting the walls or nailing hooks in the walls for art & creating a comfortable place that will relax you from within. Display things that make you happy, like décor finds and pictures of friends and family to modify the space.

Do engage in regular cleaning of your apartment

Regularly clean your living space to prevent any unpleasant odors or pests. For many, the kitchen is one of the most used spaces in the house. It’s fine to skip making your bed or to leave dirty dishes in the sink overnight, but get in the habit of doing regular cleaning tasks that prevent your space from getting truly dirty, early on. If it is in your budget, hiring a cleaning service or a house-help once a week, to vacuum and/or mop the floors, clean the bathroom and wipe down countertops, helps to ease the load.

Follow the rules

Be familiar with the apartment complex’s rules and regulations, and adhere to them. Be mindful of shared spaces and common areas, and clean up after yourself. Though your apartment & its complex are undoubtedly important aspects of your regular life, there are some areas of the apartment building that are shared. So, being considerate and respectful can go a long way in creating a pleasant living environment for everyone

Amenities for a better you

We are aware of all of the great facilities in our apartment, but actually using them is another matter. The early difficulties of forming a new habit may have little to do with accessibility. In your apartment, you could find a fitness club, a swimming pool, or a children’s play area with equipment, as well as a slew of other modern conveniences. When you already have all of them, it isn’t a good idea to leave them away without considering the benefits. Begin by going to the pool after work for twenty odd minutes or spending time at the park with your children in the evening.

Cordial Layam, gives you the best homes and pampers you with all the modern amenities that you have always longed for. A party area at the terrace alongside a barbeque zone makes sure that the perfect ambience is created for you to unwind and relax. The jogging track, swimming pool, yoga and meditation area, badminton court and air conditioned gym take care of all of your fitness goals leaving you with no excuses to skip your workout sessions. Children too can have their share of fun by playing in the recreational zone or having a gala time at the Home Theatre with their friends.

Don’t wait to report maintenance issues

Issues with your water, electricity, heating/cooling, and pests will only get worse the longer you let them linger. It’s always better to report problems as soon as they arise. If you notice any safety hazards in your apartment or the building, report them immediately to the property management.

It’s your property too!

Do not damage any part of the apartment or the building. Nowadays most apartment buildings have strict no-smoking policies, so smoking inside your apartment is usually not allowed. An overflowing bathtub in your apartment will damage your bathroom, this could also happen in the unit above you.

The best steps you can take to avoid fires are to keep your cooking area clear of combustibles and to never leave the stove top unattended. Switching off the gas connection when you’re not home for a few days, paying close attention to whether heaters, stove burners and the oven have been switched off after use are practices that help in avoiding a fire. Unintentionally turning on or leaving on a heat source is one of the most common causes of a fire.
