Best Amenities for a New Apartment

Now more than ever, people are choosing to rent a luxury apartment home over buying their own home, and for good reason. Apartment amenities can provide benefits that owning a home can never match, such as 24/7 access to a zero-entry saltwater pool or a comprehensive fitness center. So which of these convenient, luxurious, time-saving amenities are the most desirable for today’s resident? Let’s find out.

  1. Pet-Friendly Apartments and Amenities

The majority of renters today are millennials, and over 70% of millennials own pets.  That means if an apartment isn’t pet-friendly, it’s much less likely to attract tenants. So which amenities are the best for your furry friends? A pet park is convenient, and a pet spa is even better. You’ll save money by pampering your pup at an on-site pet spa, and you’ll help them stay stress-free.

  1. A Health or Fitness Center and Fitness Classes

It’s hard to put a price on your health, but gyms across the country are testing the limits by continually raising their membership prices. An on-site fitness center will save you travel time and membership costs with every use. Fitness classes provide an added incentive to exercise, and when classes are only an elevator away, it’s easy to get there on time. A large yoga room is also an excellent bonus amenity.

  1. Refreshing, Relaxing Amenities

After a long day of work, residents aren’t going to want to throw on a swimsuit and drive 30 minutes to a packed public pool. That’s why a large, on-site pool is one of the most sought-after modern apartment amenities. An Olympic size or zero-entry saltwater pool can be incredibly refreshing, and a dip into a hot tub can soothe away the day’s stresses in an instant.

  1. Expansive Outdoor Spaces

Residents want to be able to enjoy green space on a beautiful day. Outdoor grilling areas are excellent spots for social events or for getting to know your neighbors. A stroll through a garden can be just as relaxing as a dip in a hot tub.

  1. Invigorating Social Spaces

A resident lounge is a great place to entertain, relax, and watch your favorite shows with the apartment community. A large game room is also a must for entertaining guests and getting to know your neighbors.

  1. A place to Get Things Done

It can be difficult to find somewhere to work in an apartment, so having a dedicated space like a business hub can be incredibly helpful. Private resident offices are an added bonus, and a conference room can make all of the difference for a self-employed resident or entrepreneur.

  1. Bike Parking

More and more people are commuting on their bikes, and a bike parking area to keep bikes safe and secure is an incredibly important amenity.
