Create Personal Space in Your DelSuites Furnished Apartment

April 12, 2013

Whether you’re traveling for work or leisure, sometimes you could use a touch of home. Even if you’re not staying at a hotel, no matter how finely appointed your short-term rental is in downtown Toronto,  it’s the personal touches that turn a house into a home aren’t a part of the design. But while renting means that you can’t paint the walls your favourite shade of purple, here are five simple (and practically instant) solutions for adding a little character into virtually any living space.

Design A Photo Gallery

While short or long term residential living means you probably don’t have your children, partner or pet waiting for you at the end of the day, that doesn’t mean they can’t greet you when you walk through the door. By using your favourite photos, you can create an instant gallery as a focal point in your living room, along a hallway or at the front entrance.  Although a collection of inexpensive frames work well for a table top gallery, if you’re short on surface space, consider using a collection of bright coloured peel-and-stick wall frames.

Awaken  Your Senses

You may not realize it, but familiar smells and sounds can make you feel at home in your downtown Toronto furnished rental, even when you’re not. By incorporating a few scented candles into your space,  you can enjoy the aroHome Suite Homema of freshly baked cookies without turning on the oven. For many of us, music is an integral part of our lives which means that by simply loading your iPod into one of the docking stations in your suite, you can listen to your favourite tunes, should you decide to actually bake those cookies.

Prepare to be Floored

For practical purposes, hardwood flooring adds instant appeal in rental properties but sometimes your toes need something to sink into. Whether it’s a simple mat in front of the kitchen sink or a throw rug at the foot of your bed, accessorizing with small or medium-sized floor coverings in your DelSuites apartment rental space is an easy and low-cost way to add comfort.

Positive Reflection

You don’t have to be an interior designer to realize that reflective surfaces will brighten a room. Whether you choose glass frames or add a mirror in your entrance, the reflective nature of these surfaces means that you’ll instantly add more light to your space, which instantly makes it more inviting. Even if the main living space in your apartment isn’t well illuminated, you can maximize what you do have, by adding accessories that reflect the natural light.

Relax & RechargeSleep Well

When you need to rest your weary head, there’s nothing like having the comfort of your own pillow. Even better, having your own pillow-top mattress pad to cushion your whole body. Although you may not be able to travel with your own pillows and linens from home, it may be worth investing if you’re going to be traveling on a frequent basis.

While the changes may be small, it’s often the little things that add the most impact in your day to day. After all, no matter where you go, having a few familiar comforts of home can bring new life and energy to both you and your space.

Elegant Short Term Rentals in Scarborough

August 14, 2012

From cultural diversity to green living, some cities have it all. In the Greater Toronto Area, the suburban east end community of Scarborough offers a cosmopolitan atmosphere along with a generous dose of small-town friendliness that’s as welcoming to visitors as it is to long-time residents. While it’s situated close to Toronto’s downtown, this multicultural community is only minutes away from numerous outdoor escapes including, Bluffers Park Marina and the Rouge Valley Conservation Centre.  With two locations (Forest Vista  and 360) DelSuites rentals in Scarborough has long since been aware of the benefits of living and staying within this growing community.  Whether you’re dealing with renovations or visiting from out of town, DelSuites can accommodate your needs in one of these two convenient locations.

Speaking with local residents is one of the best ways to get to know a city. According Scarborough resident and DelSuites client, Rachel F, it’s the duality of Scarborough, “suburban yet in the city,” that appeals to her most. During her recent home renovation, Rachel and her husband were able to live in their neighbourhood by staying with DelSuites . “We chose to stay at the 360˚City Centre, because it was close to work, childcare and within walking distance of Scarborough Town Centre” explains Rachel. Between balancing the demands of family, work and home renovations, Rachel says that DelSuites housekeeping services allowed her to really focus on other things. As an added bonus, the floor-to-ceiling windows in her suite, offered Rachel a serene view of Lake Ontario, which naturally inspires thoughts of summer.
When it comes to the warmer weather season, Scarborough has plenty of attractions to entertain you and your family. Rachel recommends a visit to the Metro Toronto Zoo, followed by a cooling off at the neighbourhood splash pads at Milliken and McGregor Park.  As the greenest of Toronto’s suburban communities, the regeneration of Toronto’s Waterfront Trail, which runs along Lake Ontario from the Guildwood Go Transit station toPort Union Road, is a scenic route worth exploring at any time of year.

Along with being situated close to the Scarborough’s transit system, shopping and businesses, both 360˚at City Centre and Forest Vista are in close proximity to major highways.  Even if you don’t currently live in Scarborough, either location is well-suited to visitors who are interested in exploring multiple parts of the Greater Toronto Area. “Forest Vista is so close to the 401 highway,” shares Freddy B, “you can still access the rest of the city.” As a 30-year resident himself, Freddy says that he not only enjoys living in this community but he’s also happy to be raising his children here. But when Freddy and his family were forced to spend a week in a hotel (after evacuating their home due to a fire) he discovered DelSuites through his insurance adjuster.  A perfect insurance housing solution. “The hotel had a bed and a microwave,” he shares, “Forest Vista was a furnished apartment that even had everything you needed readily available to prepare our own meals.” Freddy says he and his family were even able to enjoy a few games and ping pong in the building’s games room; almost like a vacation.

Despite their circumstances, Rachel and Freddy found comfort in the simple conveniences of home while staying with DelSuites Scarborough locations. Whether you’re on vacation or you need temporary home in a hurry, it’s all about the location. Quite simply, there’s nothing better than finding a spot that’s right in your ideal neighbourhood.
