How to Prep Your Apartment for Overnight Guests

If you’re downsizing from a larger home into one of our RPM Living communities, you may be wondering if there is still enough space for hosting overnight guests. If you’ve selected a floor plan that doesn’t have a dedicated guest room, we have some tips to help make it easier for hosting overnight guests. These tips will give your guests a comfortable place to stay while you maintain your own privacy and peace of mind. 

 

Clear Space For Your Guest’s Belongings

 

Whether it’s a coat rack by the door, bathroom counter space, or a shelf in the hall closet, make sure your guest has space to put their belongings. This will make your guest feel welcomed and prevent clutter from piling up in your shared living spaces while they’re staying at your apartment home. With spacious floor plans like the ones offered at Clover Apartments, the possibilities are endless!

We recommend doing this even if it means moving some of your things to a less convenient location while your guest stays with you. It’s more comfortable for you to be slightly inconvenienced in your own apartment than it is for a visitor trying to settle into someone else’s apartment. 

 

Invest in a Pull-Out Couch

 

A pull-out couch makes hosting overnight guests much more convenient both for you and for your guest(s). This way, you can visit in your living room during the day but still give your guest a comfy place to sleep at night. Spacious and stylish floor plans like you’ll find at properties like The Lennox are going to be perfect for adaptable furniture such as this! Make sure you have spare linens for the pull-out bed, too! 

Pull-out couches can be expensive, so if you’re looking for a little less financial commitment, an air mattress also works.

 

Take Advantage of Collapsible Furniture

 

Drop-leaf tables, nesting coffee tables and end tables, folding chairs, and the like help you expand your space to suit more people without adding permanent clutter to your RPM Living apartment. In fact, this tip is useful whether your guests are staying overnight or not; being able to expand the table for a shared dinner, then collapse it to make more room in a spacious living area is a great option to have up your sleeve whenever you want to host friends or family in your apartment home.

 

Get a Folding Screen for Privacy

 

Especially if your overnight guest is staying in your living room, offering a little extra privacy can make a huge difference to their comfort and yours as you move through each other’s space. A folding screen can be just the thing you need to give your guest a little of their own space within your apartment and still be able to transition easily between guest mode and guest-free mode. You can easily store a folding privacy screen in a closet for the next time you have guests. 

 

Plan To Spend Time Outside of Your Apartment

 

There’s no need to spend all your time inside your apartment! Plan some excursions to your favorite places in town, or enjoy an afternoon in a local park. The more time you can spend outside of your apartment, the less frustrating it will be to have limited space to share when you and your guest are both at home. 

 

Be sure to take advantage of the vast community amenities with your guests that we offer at our RPM communities, like the resort style pool at Eastpark Apartments, or the private theater with oversized seating at The Crossings at Canton!

 

That’s it for our tips for hosting overnight guests! Don’t forget, if you want to shop our RPM Living communities across the US, check out our Communities page.

Renter-Friendly Tech For Your RPM Living Luxury Apartment

Are you looking for some renter-friendly smart home technology recommendations to make your life a little easier? Many often mistake that living in an apartment means limiting your smart-home technology. That isn’t true, and we’ve put together a list of smart-home technology recommendations that you can easily implement in your RPM Living luxury apartment today. 

 

Robot Vacuum

Whether you’re a little messy or even if you’re a neat freak, robot vacuums are a lifesaver for day-to-day life, especially in apartments. Our open-concept layouts make it easier to get your apartment in tip top shape without you having to lift a finger. What else could you ask for? Bonus: this one even has a mop feature for all your hard floors. 

 

Bluetooth Speaker

If you’re cleaning, working, or anywhere in between, a wireless speaker is a great way to set your mood - no matter what mood it is. This bluetooth speaker from Ikea may look and sound like it’s going to cost you an arm and a leg, but really, it’s only $79.99.

 

Smart Plugs

Feeling like your energy bill is a little higher than it should be? Invest in a smart plug! These little gadgets will allow you to check via WiFi just how much energy any of your appliances or other electronic devices are pulling, and they can be remotely turned off and on. That’s right - you can turn your coffee pot on without even getting out of bed in the morning. Sounds too good to be true? Wait until you see how affordable it is.

 

Indoor Smart Camera

Hoping to keep an eye on your pets, plants, or belongings when you’re away from your apartment, without installing an expensive home security system? If so, an indoor smart camera should definitely be on your list. Easily connect to your smartphone, and check out what’s going on in your apartment when you’re out of town, visiting with friends, or simply out for an errand.

 

Digital Assistant

This may seem too easy, but we mean it when we say that EVERYONE at our RPM Living luxury apartments should have one of these. Whether you need an answer to a question, set a timer or reminder, or even control your smart plugs, an Amazon Echo or a Google Home is a great way to make apartment life more efficient without breaking the bank or taking up space.

 

With so much helpful tech available in today’s world, we can’t wait to hear what your favorite tools are for your home, too! Let us know in the comments or on our social media.
