Tips for Getting Settled In Your Corporate Apartment

January 23, 2018

What is the first thing you like to do to get settled in a new city?

Feeling at home in furnished corporate apartments is not as easy for some as it is for others. Here are a few tips from Arkansas Suites that will help you enjoy your stay in the natural state.

Cook a meal from scratch.

It might take a while to really feel at home in this space. Give yourself some time. Maybe you are not the best cook, but getting busy in the kitchen will help make furnished corporate apartments feel more comfortable to you. You will learn to use the appliances in the kitchen. You’ll even find that any sense of rigid corporate sophistication you feel in this space will begin to wear off, as messes are bound to happen while cooking.

Add your own touch of interior design.

Don’t forget to decorate. While the corporate apartment you are staying in might be fully furnished, it might not be furnished according to your interior design preferences. Add foliage to the shelves and family photos to the walls and fridge.

You’ll want your corporate apartment to feel like a place you can de-stress after a long day of training.

Keep track of your belongings.

Moving and packing is a lot of work. Not having good organization can lead to lots of extra work on your part. Your organization doesn’t need to be extensive. Keep a list while you pack and revisit this list when the time comes to head back home.  

Get familiar with the surrounding areas.

Don’t wait until weeks into your stay to find a good coffee shop. One of your first priorities should be to locate things like grocery stores, dry cleaners, salons, pharmacies, and more.

You should also get familiar with the tourist attractions. Work won’t consume the entirety of your stay. There are so many sights to see and entertainment to enjoy in central Arkansas. Ask around. The last thing you want to happen is to realize all the fun to be had only at the end of your stay.

You can even do some research on local attractions before you come. Check out central Arkansas major cities like Bentonville, Rogers, Fayetteville, Little Rock, North Little Rock, Maumelle, Benton, and Bryant.
