It’s never fun to receive a bill for utilities that’s much higher than you expect it to be. Fortunately, with apartment living, there are ways to keep your home cool while saving money.  Riverside Park is committed to helping residents stay cool and comfy during the summer heat. Whether you choose to enjoy a movie in an air-conditioned theater or want to enjoy one of our great outdoor amenities, you have many options for staying cool and saving money.

Enjoy Our Outdoor Amenities

During the summer, avoid using your stove during the heat of the day. Instead, please take advantage of one of our fantastic outdoor cooking and BBQ spaces. Complete with grills and seating, you and your family can enjoy a great meal while keeping the summer heat out of your home. Enjoying outdoor amenities is apartment 101!

Rental-Friendly Ways to Cool Down Your Home

Most electricity companies recommend turning your thermostat to one temperature and leaving it there. That way, the air conditioner doesn’t have to work quite as hard to keep the home cool at night. Setting your thermostat to a higher temperature while you’re at work, then lowering it when you come home, can increase your electricity bill. You can also set it to automatic which will allow your device to turn off on its own once a certain temperature has been reached. 

Local Attractions That Will Help You Keep Cool

Why not take advantage of the many shopping malls or indoor activities in your community to stay cool? Reno is home to the National Automobile Museum. So, what are you waiting for — Learn something new while enjoying the lower temperatures at the museum!

Riverside Park Apartments has many amenities that will keep you and your family entertained for hours. Whether you want to be indoors enjoying a fun activity or outside swimming in our pool, Riverside Park will help you beat the heat this summer!

A Good Night’s Rest at Riverside Park Apartments

The best days start after a good night’s rest! That is because eight hours of sleep can improve your quality of life! A good night’s sleep improves your energy, your mood, and your immune system! 

But for many of us, getting 7 to 8 hours of good sleep is just a dream. Instead of tossing and turning each night, why not turn your Riverside Park apartment’s bedroom into a sleep sanctuary. 

Here’s how:

Begin with the Sheets

There is no better feeling than climbing into a bed that has fresh sheets. Using high-quality materials for your sheets not only means that they will last longer, but they will also feel so comfy that you will not want to get out of bed.

Thread count and fiber length are two things to consider. Long-staple cotton is best because it creates longer and finer yarns.  Both make for a luxurious feel and a comfortable night’s sleep.

Your Bedroom Scent Makes a Difference

Choose soothing scents like lemongrass and vanilla. They both are proven to create a relaxing atmosphere. Use candles, automatic air sprays, or essential oil diffusers to fill your bedroom with those calming scents.

The Soothing Sound of Water

Add a soothing water fountain to your bedroom. The gentle sound of running water can help you drift off into a stress-free state. Small indoor fountains are compact and add to your décor. 

Keep It Clean

It can be hard to unwind in a messy room. Add a storage bench to the end of the bed. It will help keep your bedroom in your Reno apartment a bit more organized. It also encourages pets to sleep on the bench instead of in your bed.

Get a Down Comforter 

Speaking of warmth, a down comforter is one of the best ways to keep warm and cozy. Nothing says sleep sanctuary more than being under a plush-down comforter.

And for the warmer months, make sure your bedroom is anywhere between 60 and 67 degrees. Fans and the right sheets can help keep you cool at night.

These tips to creating a peaceful sleep sanctuary in your Riverside Park Apartment in Reno.
