If you're moving to Southwest Austin, congratulations! Your new neighborhood gives you easy access to both city attractions and the beauty of nature. Here are some essential items to bring with you to help you take full advantage of all the benefits of apartment living.
1. A Cheerful throw rug
Whether you like rugs that are brightly colored or demurely neutral, bold and modern or traditionally designed, buying a rug that you love is an easy way to express your personality and accent your furniture in your new apartment.
Bringing greenery into your apartment makes your home look more inviting. Houseplants also purify the air, reduce stress, and can even improve your mood.
3. Hiking boots
Residents of Southwest Austin apartments are fortunate to be close to the beautiful Texas Hill Country. You can explore many miles of trails with a choice of flat or hilly terrain. You will see spectacular views and wildlife. Be sure to bring a good pair of hiking boots to take full advantage of the outdoor recreational opportunities.
4. New towels
Buying a new set of towels is a great way to make a fresh new start in your new home. In addition to accenting your new bathroom, you may want a large towel for laying by the pool or nearby Barton Springs.
5. A bicycle
The Veloway, located in Southwest Austin's Circle C Ranch Metropolitan Park, was the first bicycle track of its kind in the country and is set in a beautiful landscape. People come from all over the Austin area to ride on the Veloway, but you have an advantage -- the Veloway is right in your neighborhood.
6. A comfortable couch
You will be glad to have a comfortable couch when you want to relax after a busy day. When you have a good couch, it's also easy to invite friends to come over.
7. A camera
There is so much natural beauty in Southwest Austin. One of the most beautiful places in the neighborhood is the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. If you enjoy photography, you'll want a great camera with a macro lens to take stunning close-ups of the flowers and nature.
8. A good set of cookware
Southwest Austin has amazing restaurants, but sometimes you are going to want to eat at home. Having a good set of pots and pans makes cooking a pleasure.
9. A paddle board
Stand-up paddleboarding is super popular in Austin, thanks to the abundance of waterways and the beautiful weather. You can rent a paddle board, but buying your own will give you the most options and let you bypass the rental lines.
