What are Apartment amenities? 

Apartment amenities are the fun perks in a building that simplifies the lives of its residents, helping them pursue fun activities with more convenience and generate more productivity in a short distance. One might think the very concept of apartment, let alone its amenities, originated and popularized a couple of decades ago. However, the Ancient Romans embraced and popularized this concept with ‘insulae,’ which featured communal amenities like public baths, shops, and even dining areas. These structures offered a lifestyle of having everything necessary within reach, like the modern amenities offered by apartments, fostering a sense of community within the residents.  

 

Importance of Amenities in apartment living; 

The modern lifestyle is proving itself to be more hectic, crowded, and stressful to its participants, with the downsides outweighing the positives. Pollution of all forms can be found in its ultimate form within the highly dense and overpacked streets, which fuels their ‘already in burnout’ stage with work and other personal problems. These factors impact their physical and mental health, resulting in an accumulation of diseases that push the individual toward the brink of insanity.  

Apartment amenities offer themselves as a path for residents to escape the boredom and stress of the complex modern life, as a core advantage of leveraging these facilities is it opens opportunities for leisure and socialization, increasing satisfaction, retention rates, and overall happiness in the renters.  

The current generation is witnessing amenities of all sizes and shapes manifest within these apartments, and have been divided into two parts: indoor and outdoor. We shall be going through them as we scroll down:  

 

Common Apartment Amenities list

This list elucidates to the reader of the apartment amenities widely available, with variations in each building. These facilities tend to serve multiple purposes in addition to adding comfort and providing a seamless luxurious experience to the residents and are divided into: 

 

Indoor Amenities

These amenities are made available for the resident to partake and benefit from within the four walls of the complex, with the likes of: 

 

Fitness Centres

The current era is witnessing a significant rise in fitness enthusiasts, with social media playing a pivotal role in boosting their interests. The gym serves as more than a place to develop one’s physical abilities, it also activates the practitioner’s happy hormones which is a key factor in a healthy and happy lifestyle.  

 

Swimming Pools

Swimming is a beneficial activity that contributes towards the growth in height for kids and keeps everyone in shape. It is also perfect for relaxation and recreation, serving as the perfect getaway to beat the summer season.  

 

Clubhouses or Common Arenas

Clubhouses serve as the ‘meeting point’ for residents of the building, as people come together to know each other, engage in a conversation, or perform activities that tighten the bond eventually. This fosters the residents’ sense of belonging and camaraderie.  

 

Business Centres

The COVID-19 pandemic catalyzed the popularizing of the concept of ‘work from home’, with 28 percent of employees across all industries working remotely. Noting this new trend, various apartments are facilitating business centers with well-facilitated workstations for these hard-working employees to work with minimal to no disturbance.  

 

Indoor Recreation Facilities

These spaces encourage the residents to interact and conduct activities with each other, and serve as a development point for sports and active recreation. These facilities contain spaces to engage in games such as squash courts, table tennis centers, badminton/tennis courts, bowling alleys, and even skating rinks.  

Outdoor Amenities

These amenities are for those who may feel bored enough to sit in their rooms, but are not willing to move outside their complex:  

 

Outdoor Pool or Hot Tub

Similar in structure to a swimming pool, the outdoor pool or hot tub serves more like the outdoor version of a jacuzzi. One can simply lay and soak themselves in the warm waters, relaxing their stressed muscles and reloading their brain’s functioning capacities.  

 

Rooftop Deck or Patio

These flat structures are found at the top of a building with the required furniture and other tools already set up for the residents to view the sunrise/sunset and just sit there, admiring the beautiful sky and fluffy clouds while breathing in the fresh air. 

 

Sports Courts

The importance of engaging in a physical activity that channels competition is always on the rise, and the current generation is no exception. Kids love sports, and apartments facilitate sports courts for them to play and practice their favorite sports whenever required.  

 

Grilling or Picnic Areas

The unhinged traffic with road blockages sometimes deters people from conducting a picnic with their families. Apartments provide these spots for families to just walk around, have a delicious meal outdoors, and enjoy the breeze and view nature has to offer.  

 

Dog Parks or Pet Amenities

Although owning a pet is harder, especially if one resides in the upper floors, there has been a significant rise in pet owners within the last few years. Dog parks are also being facilitated with additional pet amenities being provided to take good care of their pets physically and mentally.  

Benefits of Apartment Amenities:  

 

Convenience

Apartment amenities are very convenient, as the inhabitants have access to every major facility that most people need to travel for.  

 

Health and Wellness

The presence of an already-established and well-equipped gym with other sports courts motivates people to engage in physical activities. 

 

Socialising and Community Building

Some people desire to foster a connection with people but do not know where to start, and the building’s clubhouse can serve as a great starter to meet people who share similar interests and views of life. 

 

Recreational Opportunities

Apartment amenities serve as various outlets for the inhabitants to pursue recreational opportunities to take a break from their stressful work life. 

 

Enhanced Quality of Life

Various studies have shown that most people who live alone with minimal to zero contact with the outside world tend to develop depression and reduce their mental health drastically. Community amenities allow people to engage with each other and engross themselves in various fun activities.  

 

Factors to Consider When Choosing Apartments Based on Amenities

Selecting an apartment is easier said than done, as there are numerous options to choose from and they tend to be overwhelming. Getting in touch with a company that deals with providing the right selection of options to choose from can be beneficial. Apart from that, one needs to note several factors like: 

 

Personal Preferences and Lifestyle

One needs to consider their daily lifestyle choices involving their requirements and preferences and should look for an apartment that covers most of these requirements.  

 

Budget Considerations

A very important factor one needs to consider before purchasing an apartment, as there are several areas to cover which can only increase the purchasing cost. 

 

Location and Accessibility

One should see the distance of their desired apartment from their workplace, school, hospital, and other public amenities.  

 

Amenities’ Maintenance and Availability

This also falls under budget considerations, as mishaps while calculating one’s financial situation can cause dire consequences to their pockets. 

 

Tips for Maximising Apartment Amenities

 

Read the Fine Print in Lease Agreements

An underrated suggestion that most people tend to not follow, as their sense of judgment is overshadowed by their excitement. There can be a line of hidden costs or conditions unsuitable to the buyer, who will not realize them until too late.  

 

Respect Community Guidelines

An apartment shelters various families, whose vastly different lifestyles can clash more than often. The community guidelines set by the apartment’s committee ensure no one gets offended and that they adjust better.  

 

Engage with Community Events and Activities

One does not fully experience the benefits of residing in an apartment if one does not engage in community activities and events.  

 

Utilise Amenities Responsibly

Staying in an apartment while barely utilizing the facilities provided serves as nothing more than a waste of money for the buyer. However, misusing these amenities not only dampens everyone’s mood, but also negates their daily activities, and the perpetrator ends up paying a lot to repair damages.
