Next, as they are adaptable to consumer requirements, they have more flexible policies to ensure your comfort while maintaining collective safety. Here are five best tips for you to follow while renting a co-ed PG in Pune:
Inhabitants of the house may share rooms so it is critical to factor in your roommate’s needs. Most differences in a PG are over the upkeep of cleanliness and sharing of room. Stay hygienic, in light of the fact that others in the room might be specific about cleanliness. Personal hygiene and general order are appreciated by everyone so please ensure you don’t do something that makes your roommate feel uncomfortable. Select specific places for clothing, utensils, and your shoes. Outline your corner in the room and urge others to do so as well. Be attentive that you are not messing up another person’s space. Also, make sure you give enough space to the other person in the room to keep their stuff. In managed accommodation spaces, you often have the advantage of separate furniture, storage areas, and cupboards which are helpful in maintaining order in the room. And of course, it reduces fights for petty reasons!
Be it your attached bathrooms or common areas like gyms and lounges, just ensure you respect everyone’s right to use them and maintain hygiene and cleanliness across. In general, be also mindful of the other’s right to use the space so don’t hog the TV or keep the bathroom to yourself. While putting up together, housemates also tend to share stuff – from appliances to daily use products. Try to be conscious of others’ needs as well and share judiciously, so you can avoid quarrels over common stuff.
Different PGs have different rules. While some are strict about timings, as a result of security reasons, some others have ruled over food and sharing spaces. Others might have a strict visitor policy. Check if your PG permits you to get visitors or not. If they permit, then check with your flatmates before welcoming them in a relative or companion. Even more important than following rules is ensuring the comfort and agreement of your fellow roommate.
Often people choose a shared accommodation as it is more economical and they might want to live with like-minded people instead of staying alone. But everybody longs for their very own space and one should respect boundaries – both physical and personal.
These are some of the ways through which you can experience a wonderful stay in your co-ed PG in Pune. Treat your roommates and fellow PG-dwellers with respect and courtesy. Try to be friendly but mindful of boundaries and you will together form a rich and engaging coliving experience.
