4 Apartment Lessons for 2021
As we kick off the first week of the new year, there are probably many things you’re looking forward to leaving behind in the previous year. Rightfully so, 2020 was an indescribable year; it left many us in an unfamiliar place, and in turn, have you believing that nothing good came from it. Yes, that year was very challenging, and while it might be easy to want to forget 2020 entirely, there are many things to take away. We learned a lot about ourselves; we found out how strong we can be, we found out creative we can be, we found out how patient we can be. These lessons and realizations will continue to help us as we navigate into 2021.
Last year, we became more familiar with ourselves; we got more familiar with something else, too—our apartment homes.
As an apartment dweller, you spent more time inside of your four walls in 2020 than any other period before. This time made you realize that your apartment space needs a fresh look going into a new year after months of looking at the same decor and stylings.
If 2020 didn’t teach us anything else, it taught all of us how to get creative with our spaces in more ways than we can imagine. Use that same energy to add some new life into your area for a fresh 365 days.
Below are four apartment features you must have for 2021.
A REAL “ WFH” Station

New Cooking Supplies
In 2020, we all took home cooking to new heights! All the extra time spent inside our apartment homes had a lot of us mastering old recipes while simultaneously exploring brand new ones.
While doing so, the cooking tools that you previously use on occasion went into overdrive.
