The Benefits of Renting from Partridge Hill

Partridge Hill - Monday, July 16, 2018

4 Renter-Friendly DIY Projects

Partridge Hill - Friday, July 06, 2018

Renting an apartment shouldn’t limit your creative side or thoughts of decorating. There are many DIY projects that are easy to do, renter-friendly, and will bring your personality to life in your Partridge Hill apartment. Our apartments are ideal for young professionals and families who want to be centrally located in the Capital Region without compromising space and luxury living. Make your apartment feel like your own with our easy DIY decorating tips!

4 Rent Friendly DIY Projects

1. Painted Dining Room Chairs: If you have eclectic taste, or want to create a focal point with your dining room table, pick up some thrift store chairs and give them a makeover! Adding a coat of paint is an easy way to create a cohesive look and adding life to furniture without breaking the bank. 
2. Update Your Curtains: Out with the old and in with the new! If your curtains are a solid color, switch them for a trendy patterned set. If you’re a novice with a sewing machine, you can create your own design on a solid set rather than buying something new.
3. Incorporate a Multi-Level Cart: No matter the size of the room, multi-level carts can serve multiple purposes. From a portable kitchen cart, cocktail or entertainment cart, to something the kids can use for toy storage – the possibilities are endless. Depending on your style you can add color with paint to create something that really stands out or add a small amount of personality with mod podge and adhesive paper. 
4. Chalkboard planters: Growing your own herbs or plants in an apartment is easy to do, but sometimes the planter pots are boring or you might want to label the herb. Pick up some chalkboard paint and either paint the entire pot or create a design large enough for you to write the plant’s name. 
These are only a few of the ideas we have for you and we’d love to see your creations or how you’re incorporating your personality into your apartment. Show us what you’ve done on Facebook (@partridgehillapts)! 

Perhaps you’re already a whiz with renter-friendly DIY projects and it’s the size or layout of your apartment that is the issue. Partridge Hill offers layouts and size options that will suit your needs! Contact us today to schedule a tour!

Top 4 Indoor Plant Mistakes You Could Be Making

Partridge Hill - Tuesday, June 05, 2018

Sprucing your home up with indoor plants not only creates a source of vibrancy and joy but can also bring life into an otherwise inanimate space. An indoor plant that is struggling to survive can make your space look dreary and can bring down the overall appearance of your home. Admittedly so, there are a few mistakes many of us are guilty of making when it comes to caring for our house plants. Continue reading to learn more about the common mistakes we make with plants and how to fix them!

4 Indoor House Plant Mistakes 

1. Fertilization: For indoor plants to survive, they rely on nutrients found in their soil. For them to truly thrive and flourish, they may require additional nutrients found in fertilizers. Ideally, you will want to fertilize during the plant’s natural growing season and then taper off until their dormant season. This schedule will vary depending on the plants natural schedule. 
2. Hygiene: This may sound odd, but, plants need to have their hygiene maintained too. Plants that live outside essentially become clean with the wind and rain. To help their continued growth and prevent possible pest infestation, it is ideal to dust their leaves and remove any dead foliage.
3. Location: For us, where we live is typically based on the age old adage of ‘location, location, location!’ the same can be said for your indoor plants. Your interior design hopes and dreams shouldn’t determine where your plants should live. For plants to thrive, you need to keep in mind what they need in order to flourish. Is it 8 hours of full sun or maybe they prefer a life that’s only in the sun for a few hours? If they aren’t receiving the proper amount of sunlight, it could be detrimental to their survival.  
4. Water: Are you the person who forgets to water their plants or the person who waters them too frequently? Whichever category you find yourself in, you’re actually causing serious harm to your plants. Familiarize yourself with their watering needs and then set a schedule for yourself whether it’s a reminder in your phone or you write it on the calendar in your kitchen.

Whether you’re looking to add a variety of plants to your home, or only one or two in the living room, your plants are sure to thrive in our apartments! The residents at Partridge Hill enjoy a lot of natural light in their apartments from the oversized windows and patio area, which their plants are sure to enjoy.

Amenities Perfect for Millennials

Partridge Hill - Thursday, May 17, 2018

Rest assured, Partridge Hill has the amenities that will make you want to call us “home”!

4 Ways to Declutter This Season

Partridge Hill - Thursday, May 03, 2018

Spring cleaning is a task many of us dread each year, but, it’s something that must be done. Even after you’ve finished your spring cleaning, it’s possible that your home still feels cluttered. Continue reading for 4 tips to declutter your home this season!

Becoming Decluttered In 4 Ways

1. Winter Décor: We’ve passed the time frame when it’s still okay to have winter décor around the home, unless it serves a purpose, put it away.  Our residents have the luxury to enjoy oversized closets which they can use to store their seasonal décor! 
2. Cut Back on the Blankets: Each year we tend to accumulate more and more blankets, maybe they were on sale, given as a gift, or it as a print you couldn’t say “no” to. Whichever the reason, consider how much they will be used during the warmer months and put a few away or find a few that haven’t been used recently and donate them
3. Collections: Whether you’re an avid book collector, records, DVDs, magnets or any other collectable, it can take up space and make your home look cluttered. DVDs or books, for example, aren’t used all the time. Consider storing some that you don’t use on a regular basis. 
4. Catch-All: Dressers, desks, and countertops tend to act as catch-alls for homes and the clutter can become quite unsightly. Sort through all the papers and decide what needs to stay and what can be tossed. If it doesn’t serve a purpose and isn’t essential, recycle it.  

If you’ve done all of this and find that your home still feels cluttered, consider renting a spacious apartment from Partridge Hill! We offer one, two, and three bedroom apartments with amazing closet space that will make you feel comfortable while you’re our resident. If you desire more storage space or an enclosed space for your car, we also have garages available!  

Keep Your WiFi Secure In Your New Apartment

Partridge Hill - Thursday, April 19, 2018

Renting an apartment, whether it’s your first or not, comes with a lot of responsibilities! After setting up your utilities and getting moved in, it's time to take care of a security task - protecting your home WiFi network. 

Why Do I Need to Worry About Secure WiFi?

In short: because you don't want other people using your WiFi, for many reasons. One of the most obvious is that you don't want anyone else sucking up your bandwidth and slowing down your internet speeds. However, there are major security risks, as well. 

With just a little work, anyone can get into an unsecured network. When someone is in your network, they can:

- Monitor your web activity. When this is happening, the unauthorized individual can not only read your emails and see which sites you visit, they can also steal any of your log-in and personal information that you input online.
- View all of your files on your computer.
- Spread a virus on your computer. 
- Use your internet connection to perform illegal activity.
- Use your accounts to send spam to all of your contacts.

How Do I Keep The WiFi In My Apartment Safe?

There are two simple ways to make sure that your router is secure: 

Change Your Preset Name: Every router comes with a preset name, which includes the factory name of the router. The problem with this is that if any potential hackers want to get into your router, they will be able to easily identify vulnerabilities with your network, based on their knowledge of the router model. 

Change The Password: Routers also come with a factory password. Again, a hacker knows what router you're using, they can easily guess the password, as well. While you're at it, make sure your password is something unique and difficult to guess! Tip: Avoid pet names (or your own name!) and any combination that make be easy to figure out. 

How Do I Change My WiFi’s Name And Password?

Changing your network name and password are fairly simple tasks. Once you identify the kind of router you have, simple look on the company's website for instructions on how to change your information.

That's it! Now, all you need is the perfect first apartment!

Organize Your Cabinets in 5 Easy Steps

Partridge Hill - Thursday, April 05, 2018

Creating more storage and becoming more organized may seem like an impossible task to take on while living in an apartment. Truthfully, it isn’t difficult at all; you just haven’t come across the best tips and ideas! Continue reading for ways to increase the capacity of the cabinets you already have.

5 Ways to Make Your Cabinets More Efficient

1. Items that you don’t use as frequently, but maybe need easy access to, can be stored in cute bins and baskets on top of cabinets where they are out of the way. If they are items that won’t be used quite as much, consider using a container that has a lid so you can keep the dust out. 
2. Try incorporating purposeful tools into your kitchen. Magnetic spice containers, for example, are a great way to clear up counter space or cabinet space since they can stick to the side of your refrigerator. 
3. Open your cabinets and take a step back to truly look at them. Does everything make sense where it’s currently living? Does it flow well with the space? If you’re searching for a utensil while cooking and can’t quickly find it, then it’s time to reorganize so the space works more efficiently. 
4. Cabinet cubbies, rather than open shelving, kind of force your hand and make you keep everything organized. This way you are less likely to have cluttered messy looming behind the cabinet door. 
5. Store-bought inserts can also help increase the amount of items cabinets can hold, much like cabinet cubbies. Plate racks, Lazy Susans, vertical cookie sheets, and so much more can help hold everything in its rightful place. 

We would love to see how you’ve organized your space, or even if you feel like you need a little help and you’re looking for suggestions! Share photos of your cabinets with us on Facebook (@partridgehillapts), and don’t forget to follow our page so you can keep up with everything we share each month.

If you’ve tried organizing your cabinets and find you still struggle with finding a home for everything, perhaps your home just doesn’t offer enough space for everything. If this is the case for you,  schedule a tour  of Partridge Hill Apartments! Our apartments are spacious with many amenities people dream of – swimming pool, picnic areas, security intercom entrance, and so much more! 

4 Solutions to Maximize Your Space While Renting

Partridge Hill - Monday, March 26, 2018

How many times have you started reading a blog about maximizing your space, only to realize their suggested solutions won’t actually work for you? Whether it’s installing shelving units, or suspending your pans from the kitchen ceiling, not every solution is viable for your space. 
Space Saving Tips For Renters
Maximize your floor space: Whether you live in one of our one bedroom or even one of our 3 bedroom apartments, floor space can be a hot commodity. Lofted beds, for example, are a great piece for a child’s bedroom. This allows for plenty of space for a desk to do their homework without overcrowding the floor.  

Small tool kitchen storage: While renting, you may find that the kitchen space or layout isn’t completely what you desire. Investing in organizational containers, stand-alone shelves, or even tension rods will allow you the ability to customize your kitchen to fit your needs. 

Invest in baskets: Decorative baskets serve a higher purpose than simply looking nice. Baskets can be tucked into the corner of a room while holding extra throw blankets. If your kitchen cabinets don’t rest up against the ceiling, this creates an ideal place for decorative baskets that hold items you aren’t using on a regular basis but can’t seem to part with. 

Embrace the decorative ladder: Whether you’re aiming for a country feel, or a mid-century vibe, ladders have found their way into our homes and out of storage. Depending on where you want your ladder to live will vary how it’s used for storage. From blankets and throws, to bookshelves (if the rungs are wide enough) ladders create storage that is both unique and purposeful. 

Perhaps you’ve simply run out of space in your apartment and you’re in need of a new place to call home. Contact us today and schedule a tour! Partridge Hill offers one, two, and three-bedroom apartments. Our community offers nine amazing acres of land which offers peace and tranquility for all of our residents. We’re sure to have a place you’d love to call your home.  

Start Growing Your Own Herbs

Partridge Hill - Friday, March 02, 2018

Gardening is a hobby that many enjoy; even those who reside in apartments can get in on the fun with! All you need is one or two sunny windows at Partridge Hill to get started. 
What Herbs Should I Grow?
For an indoor garden, it’s best to stick to herbs that won’t become overgrown, or grow too quickly. Kitchen staples such as basil, rosemary, thyme, and parsley are a must-have for every garden. Remember – starting with seeds is less expensive; however, they require more attention and may take a few months before you are able to reap the benefits. 
How to Manage Your Plants:
Start with your containers. You can opt to plant multiple plants in a large container that is at least 6-12 inches deep. You can also use individual pots that are at least 6 inches for each plant. If you’re starting with seeds, you can use any small container, and transport the plants into larger containers once they are between 2 – 4 inches tall. Finally, you’ll want to ensure that your containers have drainage holes and are sitting on a saucer or similar dish that will hold the drainage water. 

When transporting your plants to a new container, be sure to use potting mix instead of garden soil, which makes it more difficult for the water to pass through after time. Create a 2-3 inch layer of potting mix at the bottom of your container, before gently loosening the roots to flare out your plant, and gently place it into the new container. Finish filling in the container with potting mix, leaving just an inch or so free at the top for water. Water your plant immediately after transporting it to its new container. 

Do not overwater your plants. The best way to test whether or not your plant needs to be watered is to gently poke your finger into the soil. If the soil is dry an inch or two into the container, give it some water. Watering slowly is best; you’ll want to watch the bottom of the container, and stop watering once water starts to leave the container and drain into the saucer below. 

Pruning (or snipping) your plants will encourage healthy growth. Snipping the tips off of basil, rosemary, and similar plants will encourage the plant to branch more. With your cilantro and parsley – which are bushier – you can remove entire stems from the outer edge of the plant to encourage new growth. 

Once you’ve started your indoor herb garden, you’ll be able to use the herbs as soon as you see new growth! Don’t let apartment living stop you from growing your own herbs. Impress your friends with your green thumb and have some great meals made with fresh herbs!
