When you begin apartment hunting you probably have a list of things you have to have. Two bedrooms, pet friendly, and close to your office are all requirements if you’re going to sign the lease on a new apartment. What about the little things, though? While not necessary, there are amenities and perks that can make one apartment community more appealing than another.
You’ve had a long day at work, and after coming home and cooking dinner, the last thing you want to do is wash all of the dishes by hand. You could wait until tomorrow, but they’ll have to be washed at one point or another. You don’t realize how helpful dishwashers truly are until you don’t have one.
There is something about walk-in closets that seems luxurious. Apart from a feeling of luxury, walk-in closets are more spacious, allowing for more storage. Your clothing is easier to see and there’s more room for shoes, purses, and other accessories. Oh and there’s even room for your partners clothing…well, maybe.
Having a fitness center in your apartment complex is convenient and will save you money. With a gym so close it’s hard to make excuses for not going. You’ll be able to stick to your fitness goals and meet people who live in your complex! You’ll also won’t have to pay $30 a month for a gym membership as many apartment complexes don’t charge a membership fee.
If you’ve always wanted a swimming pool of your own, now is your chance! Finding an apartment with a pool gives you all the relaxation benefits without having to maintain it. It’s a win-win for you. Instead of cranking the AC on hot summer days, you can go relax poolside with your favorite book.
A Wall Mounted Microwave
This one may seem odd, but we have a good reason for making it a perk. A wall mounted microwave frees up counter space for either prepping food or fun kitchen gadgets. A wall mounted microwave also means you won’t have to put yours someplace inconvenient, i.e a cabinet or on top of the fridge.
