Be kind to your neighbours – put pads on the bottom of your furniture, originally uploaded by ozlady.
I have lived in apartments for the past 15 years. The first two were good in that we had no upstairs neighbours (we were on the top floor), however our current and previous apartments have upstairs neighbours, and we are occasionally disturbed by the sound of furniture scraping along the floor.
I don’t know about you, but I hate the noise of chairs dragging along the floor. Recently we purchased some chairs, and they are very, very heavy. Fortunately dearest invested in some felt pads (IKEA sells them in packs of 20, I think, for a few dollars). So now I can drag to my heart’s content without disturbing the neighbours downstairs.
I might buy a new year’s gift for our upstairs neighbours. 😉
