There are lots of ways to decorate the bathroom in your TriBridge Residential apartment but the absolute best way to get it looking great is to make sure it’s well-organized.
Keep your apartment’s bathrooms neat and well-organized!
Having a well-organized room really comes down to have enough storage for all of your belongings without the room looking crowded. Everything needs to have a place and to be in that place. Thankfully, there are plenty of great options to add storage in your apartment’s bathroom without making it feel cramped.
In place of adding large shelves, consider some more sleek like a decorative and functional shelf over your door. The bathroom door is actually a great area to add more storage. If you can’t seem to find enough storage for your towels then installing a few towel bars on the door might be the way to go.
To maximize your drawer space, add a few dividers to give you extra room. For larger items, a few baskets placed under the sink can really help make enough room to help keep your counters cleared and looking great!

There are a lot of popular myths and misconceptions about working out and getting in shape. But to be honest, generally we’re just making things more complicated for ourselves. Sometimes, we even let these myths intimidate us into not working out!
You probably don't need supplements to get or stay healthy
Here are a few such fitness myths:
- You have to start young. There is a common misconception that it’s dangerous to start working out later in life but this is simply not true. While it is true that you should be cautious when starting a new exercise program, it’s never too late to start improving your health!
- You need supplements. Sure, some people like bodybuilders and strength trainers can benefit from taking supplements and protein shakes but for the average person there is generally no need.
- You should bring a sports drink. Just like with supplements, sports drinks have their place but they’re not really for the average person. For serious athletes in longer term, high performance scenarios a sports drink can be beneficial, but it’s simply not needed for someone who works out an hour a day.

Get along with your roommate with these tips!
Do you live with a roommate in your TriBridge Residential apartment? If so, check out these tips to help you get along with your roommate:
- Communication is everything. Regardless of whether you’re close friends or not, the most important thing you can do is to communicate. If your roommate doesn’t know that one of their actions is upsetting you, chances are they’ll keep doing it.
- Pets can complicate things but they don’t have to! Make sure to be very clear on who is responsible for what when it comes to pets, especially if you each have one.
- Split bills 50/50 and put everything in writing. Written contracts are always better than verbal ones. This will make playing the bills so much easier.
- Divvy up responsibilities and write it down. Making a chore calendar may sound silly, but it’s a nice reminder of who needs to do what.
