Rental living is filled with open spaces just waiting for you to put your stamp on them. Maybe you are moving into your new apartment and need to figure out the best place for all your living room furniture. Maybe you’ve been in the same place for over a year and are in need of a change and want to move your bedroom furniture around and possibly add a new piece. Either way you have space to work with and all it takes is your imagination and the time to move furniture all over the place.
Space is something that everyone values, whether it’s personal space or square footage. The downside is that it comes at a cost (square footage that is), which makes each and every piece of extra space made within your apartment a little victory.
What better way to celebrate the little victories than by making more of them?

Now that summer is almost here, it’s time to make sure that your apartment patio or balcony is ready for anything.

Plants have always added that something extra to the space they reside in, whether it's with a splash of color or giving an added ambiance to the front porch. While you might have some basic idea of the type of plant you want for your apartment, shopping for it is a whole other deal.
When you move into your new Chico or Redding apartment, in all likelihood the walls will be painted white, the floors will be ivory and the carpeting will be off-white. All that muted color might be calming, but it also might give you a case of the blahs.
Plants can add another element to your home. They can be used as décor, help purify the air or just make your home feel more alive. But if you don’t have the space for a garden or an area that gets decent light, they can also be a commitment!
If you like the idea of having plants in your Chico apartment, but just don’t have the green thumb – or ideal space – to keep them aliving and thriving, then the list we found below will be ideal for plants to use in your apartment living space.
