The Top 3 Apartment Amenities to Have

Good Location

Not many people consider it as such, but a major apartment amenity is location. If it’s close to school, work, recreation, and shopping, you’ll enjoy the apartment even more. The prices usually increase the closer the apartment is to outside amenities, so you’ll have to weigh your options and compare it to other apartments that are farther away from your desired location.

Kitchen Appliances

Most apartments come with all the major appliances, such as a stove and a refrigerator. However, not all apartments include dishwashers and microwaves. If you’re on a strict budget and can’t afford to purchase extra appliances when you move in, look for an apartment that includes these things as part of the overall amenities.

Storage Space

Even if you’re the only one moving into an apartment, you’ll want it to have enough space for your belongings. Walk-in closets provide the most space, so check to see if the master bedroom has one included. If it’s a two- or three-bedroom place, check the sizes of each closet, and look for other storage areas in the apartment, such as a hall closet or a kitchen pantry.

Lack Space? Self Storage is Your Friend

Even the biggest and best apartments in Norwood, NJ run out of space eventually. Whether it’s a three-bedroom apartment outside the city limits or a loft somewhere downtown, you’ll never run out of room in your place when you use storage units from Access Self Storage. Storage space is one of the first things that people look for when apartment hunting. With storage units, you’ll have more than enough space for extra items, allowing you to focus on other apartment amenities that matter the most. Rent a unit today!
