A rented apartment may not allow most of the people to make any major change in appearance and even interior decoration so you have to live in there as per the demands of your landlord. This may be one of the most painful facts for any rented house but you have to live with it no matter what as the landlord has all the rights to make rules. Apartments in Dallas may have some rude landlords and this is just because of the excessive availability of tenants in this city. Some of the landlords will ask you to leave the apartment very soon just because they want to increase the rent by having a new tenant.
All these things will require you to make peace with your landlord irrespective of his behaviour and your rights violated by him at very small scales. This is because no one will want to change the apartment every now and then as rents are increasing every day and it is very difficult to find same apartment at same rent price after you leave the first one. You have to settle down in the first apartment and then change it according to your own choice without making permanent changes to apartment structure. All you can do in this situation is that hide in ruined places of apartment with some decorative things and make some creative storage places in order to put your stuff.
Most of the apartments will have enough storage space for the number of family members they were made for but you may need some extra space in certain situations. This may happen when you buy some new stuff or decide to through parties because you will need to have more furniture and other items of use. The best thing that you can do in this situation is to buy folding furniture because you can place it anywhere you want and then take it out when you need it. Beautiful folding chairs as well as tables are present in market at very reason able rates and they will also help you to adjust in a furnished rented apartment where furniture is not enough for your family use. You will be able to save enough money for these things as moving in to a furnished apartment will give you relief in purchasing lots of stuff like decorative items, carpets, rugs, kitchen utensils of daily use and washer dryer units.
Any extra corner of your apartment can make a very good closet if you want because all you need will be some curtain clothe and hang it there covering that corner. Some clothes, boots and other things of daily use can be put behind that curtain as they will not be visible to public. This will help you to utilise your space efficiently but you should never forget to use the upper portion of your apartment walls as it is the most wasted space normally. Lower portion of stairs can also help to be a good storage space if you hang a temporary curtain over there.
