Roommates Avoiding Common Issues

    -    

Once you make the decision to get a roommate for either college or to save money on an apartment while working, you have to start sharing and negotiating all different things. You cannot automatically start something and make changes to other things without first getting their input. By negotiating with your roommate about something you want to do within your shared space; you will be able to avoid any fights or upsets between the two of you. Styles of decorating can be unique from person to person and differences in decorating styles can lead to many arguments if the decorating is done separately or without the approval of all roommates.


When it comes to decorating the shared living space it is always a good idea to get the input of your roommate. Your roommate may very well have different ideas on what he/she wants the living space to be like. By doing the decorating together you can make a living space that is agreeable to the two of you and also spend time getting to know one another better. It is always fun to decorate a new room, but it can be lot more fun when you do it with your roommate.


If you are looking to make changes in the shared living space, such as replacing a piece of furniture with something else, it is a good idea to get the input of your roommate rather than just using your own judgment. Your roommate may agree to get rid of a certain piece of furniture, but may have other ideas on what to replace it with. By talking over the options you can be assured that the two of you will have a replacement that you will both agree on and like. For instance if you want to replace the existing TV stand, you may want to get a bigger one whereas your roommate would prefer to get one that has multiple uses.


Making the decision to decorate or make changes in the shared living space can lead to all kinds of fun ideas.  But you need to make sure that you include your roommate in all of the decisions so that they can help, since they are living there as well. And by asking for their input you can avoid any arguments and upsets that could very easily occur if you went ahead and did the changes without their approval. Just because you make great roommates, does not necessarily mean that you share the same style of decorating.
