In 2022, there are many reasons to be excited about apartment living. In just a few years, we’ve seen apartments become more than just places to live – they’ve become thriving and engaged communities.
And as people everywhere have adjusted their lifestyles to fit the new millennium, community and apartment amenities have followed suit to meet the changing needs of tenants.
Here are a handful of innovative amenities that are changing apartment living for the better:
1) EV Charging Stations
As more and more people ditch their gas-guzzling cars in favor of electric vehicles, it’s becoming increasingly crucial for apartments to have EV charging stations on site. This feature helps streamline everyday living for tenants who only need to use a car occasionally.
2) Work From Home Lounges
Just because you’re working from home doesn’t mean you have to stay home! On-property Work From Home Lounges is becoming increasingly popular, giving tenants a place to get out of the house and get some work done in a professional setting.
3) Community Centers With Chef’s Demo Kitchen
When you want to entertain or have a party, apartment communities with a Chef’s Demo Kitchen offer the perfect place to celebrate. Use the commercial-grade appliances to prepare a meal for your guests, then enjoy the party in a beautiful setting.
4) EV Car Sharing Programs
No problem if you don’t own a vehicle! EV car-sharing programs are becoming more and more popular in apartment communities. For people who only need to use a car occasionally, it’s a great way to save money and reduce your carbon footprint.
5) Bark Parks
Let us not forget about our furbabies! On-site bark parks and dog grooming areas make life easier for pet parents and are a great way to meet other pet-friendly tenants.
6) In-Unit Washers And Dryers
Why waste time, energy, and quarters at the laundromat when your apartment features a full-size washer and dryer? It’s a luxury that more and more tenants are demanding, and it’s one that landlords are happy to provide.
7) USB Charging Outlets
Considering that a USB cord now powers nearly everything we use, it’s no wonder that apartments are starting to install USB charging outlets in every unit. No more fighting over outlets or hunting for that elusive adapter – plug in and go!
8) Locations With High Walk Scores
If you’re looking for an apartment near everything you need, look for one with a high Walk Score. That means you’ll be able to walk to restaurants, grocery stores, parks, and more – making life easier and giving you some much-needed exercise.
These are just a few innovative amenities that are changing apartment living. And, with units ranging from Junior Suites and Studios to spacious three-bedrooms, you have all the space and innovative amenities you need to live your best life.
