How to Create an Entryway in your Apartment

There’s nothing like a well thought out front entryway to give you a sense of arriving home. But you may be experiencing this common issue in the apartment you rent: the front door opens directly into the living room. Without a formal foyer, your apartment home might lack a defined space to land. 

Here’s a list of clever ideas to create the feeling of an entryway even when there isn’t one. 

Take a seat. Add a small bench with storage cubes underneath for your shoes. 

Light it up. Add a lighting element to the area, either by stringing some lights around the doorframe or by adding a small lamp on an entryway table. 

Create a division. Put a beautiful room divider or shelving unit between the front entryway space you’re creating and the main room the door opens into.

Get artsy fartsy. Add some art on the wall next to your front door. You can splurge on a colorful painting or add something as simple as framed photographs from your Instagram feed. 

Roll out the red carpet. Add a low lying doormat or rug by the door. The softness on your feet will be a physical cue that you’re home sweet home.

When is the Best Time to Rent an Apartment?

The best time of year to rent an apartment is when you need to, of course. But if you have some flexibility - are in a month-to-month lease or are crashing with your folks, for example - planning the timing of your move into an apartment rental can pay off.

Spring and Summer: In general, May through September is the busiest moving season. Kids are out of school, college students have left for the summer, and the good weather makes hauling items across town or country easier. The result is a dynamic rental market where inventory is typically higher, giving you a wider selection of apartments to choose from. 

Fall and Winter: During the fall and winter seasons, the apartment rental market typically slows down. The disadvantage of searching for an apartment during this time is inventory tends to be lower. But the upswing is that because demand for apartments is lower, you have a greater chance at finding a deal on rent. 

It’s September! Ask our staff whether we're offering any seasonal move-in specials.

They steal deposits. I did EVERYTHING they told me to do in order to get my full deposit back. When I left, the apartment was cleaner than when I had moved in. Apparently that doesnt matter to them, and they still took a chunk of my deposit and now won't return my calls or emails. It has been 3 months, and I still am waiting for my deposit. Apparently the 21 day rule is something they think is a joke. I filed with the BBB against them, and they ignored all attempts at mediation. Please beware if you are looking to move in to Stonewood; lowest rated property in all of San Diego. That has to tell you something.
