10 Must-Have Features For Your Luxury Apartment

There are currently 48.5 million apartments in the United States. And if you're looking to rent an apartment in a luxury facility, there are a few things you'll want to consider to ensure it meets your needs.

Deciding where to live can be tricky, but we've compiled a list of things you may wish to consider when renting a luxury apartment.

In this blog post, we'll talk about a few must-have features you'll definitely need in your new apartment unit to make it feel like home and give you the most bang for your buck.

Read on for more information.

1. Free Parking

Not all apartments come with free parking, especially if you live in a city. In some urban areas, you can expect to pay a couple of hundred dollars a month for parking, and even then, it might not be covered.

Covered parking is certainly a luxury and one that should be included with a luxury apartment building. Your car will be protected from theft and vandalism, as well as other things like the elements and animals.

2. A Gym

While working out may not be everyone's cup of tea, a gym in your luxury apartment is a must-have for many. You won't need a commute to the gym, and you'll be able to work out virtually from the comfort of your own home. In addition, since Dallas is sweltering in the summer, an indoor gym saves you from having to get your workout outside in the oppressive summer heat.

3. Air Conditioning

In the Dallas summers, air conditioning is a must, and you'll want to be sure you can keep cool all year long. Don't rent a luxury apartment without air conditioning, as you'll find yourself suffering unnecessarily during the hottest months of the year.

4. Modern Appliances

Many older apartment buildings, or non-luxury buildings, have appliances to match. You don't want to be cooking with a dirty microwave, an old stovetop or store your food in an old or unreliable refrigerator. Modern appliances that are up-to-date are essential when choosing a luxury apartment.

5. Luxury Finishes

A luxury apartment building should have luxury finishes to help your home have that high-end feel. For many people, living in a luxury apartment is a replacement for living in a luxe hotel, and you'll want to feel as though you're getting that experience. Some things to look for include luxury countertops, stainless steel sinks, beautiful hardwood floors, freshly painted walls without damage, and more.

6. Newly Renovated

You don't pay to live in a luxury apartment to have a bathroom or kitchen from the 1980s. Instead, you likely want modern finishes and an up-to-date look for the interior of your home. Newly renovated facilities give your home that extra oomph and help it stay looking sleek and fresh. They are also much easier to clean than non-newly renovated apartments.

7. Pet Friendly

You want all of the members of your family to live with you in your luxury apartment, so you'll want to find an apartment that will welcome them with open arms (or paws). Finding an apartment that will welcome your fur babies is a must for many pet owners, and many luxe buildings will do so.

8. Concierge Service

A concierge service can help with building security, as well as handling things like your mail or packages while you're out. This is incredibly handy if you're a person worried about their privacy or a woman living alone. They can vet who comes in and out of the building and pick up your food deliveries and other items for you.

9. Centrally Located

This may not be a must-have for everyone, but it certainly is for anyone who cares about being near the action or being near to their work. A centrally located luxury apartment building is priceless and allows you to explore the surrounding area on foot. In addition, you can have access to world-class food and shopping at your doorstep without the hassle of finding parking or the kerfuffle of going out and about.

A centrally located luxe building also allows you to create community with your neighbors, as you may go out and about with them.

10. Community Rooms

Do you want to host events but don't want everyone in your house? If so, many luxe apartment buildings will provide community rooms that you can use. Whether you use this common space to get neighbors together or to have your own family over, it is a great way to have guests over without actually having them in your house. It also means you won't need to go above and beyond to ensure your apartment is spotless before guests come over: they're already in a nice and clean room.

Whether you're hosting a family reunion, a birthday party, or just want to hang out with friends, your community rooms are perfect for that.

Choosing Luxury Apartments That Work for You

What you want in luxury apartments may not be the same as what someone else wants. That's why it is so important to decide what amenities are must-haves and which ones are negotiable before you take the plunge and sign a lease. Of course, you'll want to find one that ticks the must-have boxes so you'll enjoy your time in your apartment.
