4 Essential Amenities for Apartment Living

When you’re apartment hunting, there are many fun and exciting options that can make an apartment stand out above the rest. Searching for a new apartment can be a thrilling experience because you get to explore different apartment communities, as well as discover a variety of amenities that will make living in a new place even better. 

Every person has different amenities that they are looking for in apartment communities. For example, if you are a fitness fanatic or live with pets, then you are probably looking for conveniences that will fill those needs. Selecting the right comforts for your needs will help your new apartment feel like home. We’ve compiled a list of amenities to help you decide which ones are essential for your new apartment.

Indoor Communal Spaces

For residents who work from home, indoor communal spaces can help foster favorable work environments. These types of spaces are ideal for those who work from home because they can give residents places to work that are quiet with little distraction. Apartments have designated private working spaces, such as conference rooms, for residents to use whenever they need. Additionally, apartment communities offer free Wifi in their common spaces for those who need to use the Internet and sometimes have coffee bars, so that residents can grab a coffee and get to work.

Communal spaces at apartment communities also offer places for you to socialize and hang out with your friends. These spaces are perfect for hosting parties and other types of celebrations. Many apartment communities have amenities like party rooms for private events like birthday parties or anniversaries. We have various sizes of party rooms, like our Chef’s Table, which is often used for more intimate holiday gatherings, since it has a kitchen and seats up to 20 people. Our other party room, the Lounge, also seats up to 20 people. Along with these rooms, we have a few unique indoor communal spaces, like our media lounge where residents can watch Sunday football or movies, and our virtual reality indoor golf simulator.

Outdoor Communal Spaces

Outdoor communal spaces offer additional places for you and your family and friends to hang out when the weather is nice outside. Communal grills offer places to barbecue during the summer, and fire pits present areas to roast s’ mores over an open flame. 

For outdoor enthusiasts, many apartment complexes have trails for running, walking, or bicycle riding. You can even spend time on the community dock, and if you are feeling adventurous, check out our shared kayaks.

Pet-Friendly Communities

If you have a furry friend who is always by your side, then you are in need of a pet-friendly apartment complex. Moving into a pet-friendly community creates an easy way to make new friends—both human and dog. It will make your move a lot easier since you and other residents will both have pets, which will help spark conversations. People often gather on paths around our building and even on our community “Woof Top” with their pets. 

You can also find friends to help you with your animals, which will make your life much simpler. Luxury apartments can offer services for pets, like dog walking services or boarding and pet-sitting. To help you connect with other pet owners and services, we’ve created an app to easily connect you to what you need. 

Resort-Style Pools

Whether you like to swim, dive, splash, or lay next to a pool, it’s always a fun place to go to during the summer. Apartment complexes that have pools are always an added bonus during those hot summer months. 

Most apartments with pools usually have sundecks and cabanas for shade, for those who prefer to sunbathe or relax next to the pool. We have a resort-inspired pool with patio chairs and semi-private cabanas to give those who visit our pool a refreshing experience.

This list of apartment amenities can help you decide which conveniences are essential for you in your new apartment. Both indoor and outdoor communal spaces will allow you to spend time with your friends and family in different social settings. Pet-friendly apartments can give your pet a welcoming home, as well as a pet-loving community for you to join. A pool can provide entertainment and a relaxing place to spend your time outside of work.
