nOne of the most common questions we hear from new residents is, “Can I hang personal belongings on the walls?” Every community’s answer is different. In short, our answer is, “yes!” We want you to feel comfortable in your home. You are welcome to mount shelves, televisions, picture frames and more. You can even paint your walls! All we ask is that you restore the apartment to its original condition before you move out. To avoid unnecessary move-out charges, this means patching any holes and, if necessary, painting walls back to their original color. Sometimes, when it comes to living in an apartment, it’s best to find simple shelving solutions for your home. Here are a few of our favorites!

EASY SHELVING SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR APARTMENT

Need some shelving space for your apartment? Get free-standing shelving units that you can pack up and move easily from Target or DIY furniture stores like IKEA or The Container Store. They’re affordable and really easy to put together! And if you just want a few shelves for books or DVDs, get a few mountable single-shelf units and consider adding some storage baskets to help keep your belongings organized.

Corner shelving is also a great solution for floor plans that don’t have much wall space. Shop around to find a corner shelving unit that fits your needs and space. We also recommend visiting Pinterest to get ideas for small spaces and other storage needs! There are many apartment-friendly shelving solutions that are simple to install and uninstall, which will make things much easier for you when it’s time to move.

For more apartment decorating tips and ideas, follow us on Pinterest and Instagram! We’re always sharing our favorite interior designs. Sometimes, we even feature the homes of our residents!

Fright Town

Described by many as the scariest haunted houses in Oregon, Fright Town is “a whole city block of screams and shock.” The haunted houses are designed to scare adults and older children alike, and they do their job well. The haunted house tours are open throughout October, and you can visit frighttown.com to see if the event is right for you and/or your family.

Maze at Sauvie Island

The corn maze at Sauvie Island is open now through October 31st. This year, they’ve teamed up with Peanuts Worldwide to bring The Great Pumpkin to Portland by hosting a Charlie Brown-themed maze! Visit portlandmaze.com for more information.

Haunted Pub Tour

Throughout October, BeerQuest Walking Tours takes guests on a 2.5-hour haunted pub tour through two of Portland’s most historic bars. Enjoy beer tastings and ghost stories as you learn about the city’s eerie past. Visit beerquestpdx.com to schedule a tour!

Boo! Cruise with Portland Spirit

Cruise down the Willamette River in your best costume! Board the Portland Spirit’s Boo! Cruise on the night of October 29th and enjoy dinner, live music, dancing and costume contests. Visit portlandspirit.com to book your table!

Trick-Or-Treating

It can be tough to find a safe place to trick-or-treat in the city. Thankfully, our neighborhood is the perfect solution! We’re inviting all Hassalo on Eighth residents to put on your best costumes and trick-or-treat throughout the community. (If you’re not a resident, you should be! Check out our floor plans here.) For those of you who choose not to trick-or-treat, we encourage you to hand out candy at your apartment! In the coming weeks, we will supply concierge with Halloween-themed paper cutouts that you can place on your door to indicate that you are ready and waiting for trick-or-treaters.
Have a happy, festive October and a safe Halloween!
