Sharing an Apartment: Roommate Questionnaire

Finding a roommate to share your Allentown apartment can be a difficult task, but one of the key strategies on your search is to meet the potential roommate in person and interview them. They in turn may do the same. I discovered through experience some interesting questions that you should include on your questionnaire and thought I’d share.

As protocol for the meet up, make sure you decide on a public place to have the interview, especially if this is a stranger responding to your ad for a roommate. Make it a comfortable place, where you can have a coffee or tea and get to know each other. Avoid bars and liquor. You want to have a clear head and a clear atmosphere. Also, I suggest you meet during the day if possible, on a weekend perhaps if you both work full time, or during a lunch hour.

Open your meeting with a nice greeting, and a handshake. First impressions? Take notes in your mind when you can. Your first impression will take you far. Trust them. An immediate bad feeling can be telling you something. When you sit down, don’t be afraid to bring out your list and take notes. This is your place you want to share after all. You will want to find someone truly compatible to make life easier, not more stressful. With that said, here are the questions:

  • Have you shared an apartment with someone before?
  • Was the person you roomed with a relative, girlfriend or boyfriend, co-worker, or friend?
  • Why did you decide to move out?
  • Was there any problem with your previous roommate?
  • Do you have a full time job?
  • What are you work hours?
  • Do you do any work at home? How often?
  • Do you smoke?
  • Do you use recreational drugs or alcohol?
  • Are you in a serious relationship? Will your boyfriend or girlfriend be staying over and how often?
  • Do you have a special diet that you follow, vegetarian, diabetic, vegan, or any other?
  • Are you religious? Does your religious principles effect you daily living and how so?
  • Do you consider yourself a neat person or carefree and sloppy?
  • Will you be will to do a share of the chores to maintain a neat and clean apartment?
  • Will you share the cost of cleaning products for the apartment?
  • Are you willing to work out and divide the cost of a grocery list each week?
  • Do you have any pets? If so, what kind?
  • Friends? How many?
  • Will your friends visit a lot, and do you like to throw parties for your friends? (This isn’t a bad thing, as long as the two of you are in agreement!)
  • Do you watch much television? What do you watch? How often?
  • What time do you usually go to bed, and what time do you get up?
  • Are you a musician? What instrument do you play? How often do you practice?
  • Are you willing to co-sign a lease?
  • Are you willing to sign a roommate agreement?
  • Are you able to supply references from previous roommates, employer, or previous landlord?

Asking any of these questions will open a dialogue with your new acquaintance and will help you get a feel of what the person is like. Keep in mind that this list is designed for an interview with someone you’ve never met before.  If the person you’re meeting is an acquaintance, adjust the questioning accordingly….or perhaps not! It’s up to you, but do take the time to get to know a person before jumping in to sharing your Allentown apartment.

The Arts in Doylestown PA

If you leave your Doylestown apartments and drive around you cannot miss this building because, well, it’s a castle!  The Mercer Museum and the Fonthill Museum are creations of Henry C. Mercer (1856-1930) and his creative vision is kept intact by The Bucks County Historical Society.  At the museum you can view collections from American daily life preserved with great care, ranging from hand tools to horse-drawn carriages.  The six-story concrete castle was erected by Mercer in 1916. Each level of rooms houses its own unique perspective of exhibits, with small alcoves for small exhibits all arranged according to Mercer’s illuminating classifications such as: healing arts, tinsmithing, dairying, illumination, etc.  Visitors will view objects in a new way. Before heading back to your Doylestown apartment, be sure to check out the Fonthill, Henry C. Mercer’s home that was built in 1910 which houses Mercer’s famed Moravian tiles produced during the American Arts & Crafts Movement.  The Mercer Museum is located at 84 Pine Street in Doylestown, Pa.Come to Me All Ye that Are Heavy Laden, oil on canvas, William Schwartz The Michener Art Museum has been called the Art and Soul of Bucks County, Pa.  When venturing out of your Doylestown apartment to view some art be sure to visit this museum located on South Pine Street.  This museum offers exhibits, events and programs for all ages, as well as creative art classes for families and children.  A museum shop is featured and volunteer opportunities are available.  Check out their website for more information. Present exhibits include an American Icons photography collection, artist Si Lewen, and abstract painting exhibits.  Artwork above: William Schwartz, oil on canvas, “Come to Me All Ye That Are Heavy Laden.”

If you’re not the big museum type, when you head out of your Doylestown apartment you have many other options and The Chapman Gallery on East State Street is perfect.  Founded in 1989, the gallery specializes in original artwork and fine prints by Bucks County area artists. The galley exhibits oil paintings, watercolors, acrylics, and pottery.  They also buy and sell past Pennsylvania Impressionist and New Hope Impressionist paintings.

Rust Revelation

Consider the color rust when designing the interior of your Doylestown apartment….it is quite different, adds warmth, and subtle inspiration.

…my favorite piece, the  Rusty Scroll ottoman from Spacify….inspiration for this post…

….adding a throw or some pillows in rust can really highlight a bland room….

…..love the color combination here…almost anything is possible…

…rust objects d’art….from Colour Lovers….

….soft and pretty…rust, gold and taupe together…

….a combo of red, orange, and yellow pillows spill into rust…

Just adding a touch of rust color to any room in your Doylestown apartment is worth trying.  Rust goes with white, sage, beige and brown tones, and can add a hot reflection on black furniture.  Hope you find some of these images inspiring for your apartment in Doylestown.

Celebrity Living Rooms

My fascination with living space of famous people continues.  Taking hints from popular interior designers of celebrities homes can enhance your Doylestown apartment.

“The making of the house was as significant to me as the living in it,” says Jennifer Anistan of her Beverly Hills retreat designed by Stephen Shadley.  This sleek living room full of warmth opens out to a koi pond.  Table is from Todd Merrill Antiques. Glant linen on sofa. Velvet chair is by Manuel Canovas.  (March, 2010).  Maybe we can’t go so far as to putting a koi pond in our Doylestown apartment, but the rich tones of this room would be easy to duplicate.

For a totally different look to your Doylestown apartment take a look at this stunning 70s-like room of Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish.  This Boogie Nights inspired living room was designed by Martin Lawrence-Bullard.  The scenery is L.A., but the minimalist clean lines and color can be inspiring in your Doylestown apartment.  Onyx and chrome low tables by Lawrence-Bullar. Carpet by The Rug Company.  (Dec. 2009)

Ah, love the comfy look of this space.  “We just wanted to feel like you’re in the country,” says Dennis Quaid of his Los Angeles home he shares with wife Kimberly.  This relaxed, comfortable interior is both artistic and welcoming. I would add those rust-colored ottomans and table to my Doylestown apartment in a second if I could. Designers John and Krista Everage incorporated the rough-hewn ceiling beams from a Pennsylvania barn.  Now there’s something close to home.  (Nov. 2008)

Patrica Heaton and David Hunt’s L.A. home is a romantic delight.  This Hancock Park home was designed by Bebe Johnson and Ellen Greer.  “Despite its large size, there’s a hominess to it,” says the actress.  We find this space on the formal side, yet quite inviting.  Painting the walls of your Doylestown apartment can change the appearance completely. Consider a soft yellow such as this to bring a bit of warmth to your room.  Carpet shown here is by Monsour.  Sofa and ottoman (love that orange!) by A. Rudin.  (Dec. 2009)

Saved the best for last.  Cheryl and Rob Lowe hired architect Don Nulty and designer David Phoenix to design their dream house. Arranging your furniture in the more central area of the large living room in your Doylestown apartment is a great idea.  Again here, the soft tones of ivory, tan, and gray meld together. consider gold frames for artwork, mirrors, and of course, the wondrous chandelier if possible in your apartment.  In this living room, the photo above the Dutch secretary is by Lyndie Benson.  The Sisal rug is by Stark. (Nov. 2010)

Romantic Room Design

With Valentine’s Day approaching, I’ve got the bug to find romance in decor…and some ideas can easily be incorporated into your Doylestown apartment.  Finding an antique mirror like this one for the bedroom adds instant romance…

Taking some romance ideas from this living room and adding them to your Doylestown apartment space can be easily done. A soft white sofa with changeable cover and toss pillows and candlesticks on the coffee table add romance. Another mirror, over fireplace, adds interest.

Instant romance: A canopy bed, soft shades of rose, creative patterns, a crystal chandelier, and gilded frames.  Consider some of these ideas when decorating your Doylestown apartment.

We cannot forget dining in your Doylestown apartment. Soft throws over chairs and double table cloths add instant grace and flow. The peachy tones we think are, well…just peachy.

We can’t forget kitchens!  Is there such a thing as a romantic kitchen? Well, this one suits me.  Adding warm tones to your Doylestown apartment kitchen can bring some romance to an otherwise utility area. Adding warm-colored vases or canisters are a nice touch to counters.
