Whether you just rented a new place or need to improve your current place, there are some items you can install in your apartment in Fishers. Generally, you should stay away from installing objects where you make a big hole in the wall or are permanent, like a new toilet. Your contract may also specify things you shouldn’t take on. For things on the fence, read this run down before starting a DIY installation in your Fishers apartment.

Can I Install A Wall-Mounted TV Or Speakers?

Most apartment complexes will be fine if you hang a wall mount so you can increase the shelf space on your credenza. The thing to think about for mounts is that screws or small hooks are fine, but avoid the installation if you want to get out a keyhole saw to make a bigger hole. The same also applies for hanging soundbars and speakers. Go ahead and install the speakers, but don’t start cutting into the drywall to obscure the wires.

Can I Install Security Devices In My Apartment In Fishers?

Even apartment inhabitants who live in a desirable neighborhood often want added safety, however, not all security devices are helpful for apartments. Some home security devices require cutting drywall to hide the wires. Then you may not be able to take devices with you when you move. Or you might be given a fee at move-out to repair wall damage. To get around this, use portable security cameras and components that use a battery and connect to your WiFi network. Some apartment renters like the convenience of a doorbell with a camera.

Smart locks are other items you may want to install in your apartment in Fishers yourself. Switching out the locks on your apartment is probably in violation of your rental agreement. If you can’t trust your existing lock’s durability, consult the management.

Can I Install A Ceiling Fan?

Ceiling fans might keep you cool, but they could also cause problems with apartment management if you install one yourself. Residents should never put in something that has electrical work. Your property owner won’t trust if you installed it to code. They want to keep every Resident in your complex safe and guard their property from flammable DIY projects. Going against your lease in this way could result in fees or eviction.

If you need more air circulation or lights in your unit, plug-in fans and standing lamps are your top bets. You might also ask the maintenance team if you wonder if your heating and cooling system isn’t running like it should. Or search out a community that comes with ceiling fans.

Can I Install A Bidet Or Other Bathroom Fixture?

You may wish to personalize your apartment bathroom to your tastes. But, apartment dwellers should not take on major plumbing alterations. Apartment plumbing systems are throughout every unit, and one poor move could affect every renter’s plumbing. So putting in a stand alone bidet should not be an approved do-it-yourself project.

Can I Install More Shelves?

Every floorplan has a closet here and there, but most people still look for extra places to stash their stuff. Most storage shelves work for your unit because you won’t destroy existing storage like built in shelves or create big holes. You can hang PVC shelving to closets, hooks in your front rooms, or an additional towel bar to the bathroom. Or put in wall shelves for accessories in your bedroom and a hanging board for utensils in the kitchen.
