Amenities can make or break an apartment. Whether you’re looking for a one or two-bedroom apartment, it’s important to consider what amenities are included within your complex. When touring a potential apartment complex, be sure to ask about the apartment features as well as the community spaces available to you. Below are top amenities that your next home must have to ensure you are happy after moving in.
Amenities to Look for on Your Apartment Tour
1. Walk-In Closets
While apartments are typically smaller than houses, there’s no reason for your storage space to suffer! By finding an apartment with spacious walk-in closets that feature convenient shelving, it will ensure that everything has a specific spot in your home. No matter if you are currently organized or not, there’s no better time to start than when you move into a new place.
2. In-Home Washer and Dryer
An in-home washer and dryer are two of the most important amenities your apartment needs to have. Who wants to worry about lugging their laundry all the way to a Laundromat? It will waste a lot of your valuable time and money. Don’t make doing laundry more of a chore than it already is and choose an apartment that features a full sized washer and dryer.
3. Updated Kitchen
Between lunch dates with your significant other and dinner parties with your friends, your kitchen will be one of the most trafficked rooms in your space. When on your apartment tour, look for signs that the kitchen has been recently updated. New, stainless steel appliances, Quartz countertops and modern cabinetry are all signs that the apartment is new or has been recently renovated.
4. On-Site Fitness Studio
Why pay for an expensive gym membership when many apartment communities offer their residents a fitness studio? If the gym is an important part of your everyday routine, be sure to tour the fitness studio at your apartment complex. Look to see if they provide a wide variety of state-of-the-art equipment, and be sure to ask if they offer any fitness classes.
5. Plenty of Shared Spaces
The community spaces your complex offers are extensions of your apartment. Between a clubroom, rooftop terrace and lounge, courtyards, BBQ grilling areas, game room, and other shared spaces, be sure to tour each one! If you can imagine entertaining your friends and family in these spaces, then this apartment complex is perfect for you.
6. Pet Friendly Community
Whether you have a pet or you are thinking about adding a furry addition to your family, it’s important to ask about your potential apartment’s pet policy. Most complexes have breed and/or size restrictions and may require you to pay a monthly fee.
7. Ideal Location
No matter how many luxury amenities your complex offers, they are essentially useless if your apartment is in the middle of nowhere. You want to find an apartment that is close to your friends, family and work. In addition, if you are a commuter, there are many apartments that are close to a local train station and bus stop to make traveling to work easier than ever before.
