When it comes to finding the right apartment in your city, you should consider what apartment amenities will come with your new place. Every apartment community is different, based on their location and the different things the property can offer to residents.

What are some of the biggest trends that are changing the way we view apartment communities? Take a look at four of the amenities you should look for on your next apartment hunt.

A Fitness Center

Fitness centers are becoming the new big thing in many apartment communities, taking the quality of it to new heights. This is something you will see a lot of rental properties do next year.

Onsite fitness centers typically include treadmills, free weights, and elliptical or cycling equipment that is free for all residents.

Billiard Room

A billiard room is also a new trend in apartment amenities.

You can spend an afternoon indoors playing a few games of pool regardless of how the weather is outside! This can be a great way to spend time with your family and friends without having to spend a penny.

Our billiard rooms includes a pool table if you feel like racking them up and a ping pong table as well if you want to become the next Forrest Gump of ping pong.

Park with BBQ Grill

A fun and inviting community should be important whether you have a huge family or it’s just you on your own. Our park is a great place to spend the day. Spend time playing on the swingset or reading a book under the tree. Your kids will be able to run around and play without the worry of traffic as you fire up the grill to cook a delicious meal on one of the bbq grills.

If you want a safe area to relax and enjoy the day our parks will have what you need.

Pet-Friendly Apartments

Your furry friends are a part of your family and you shouldn’t have to give them up because an apartment doesn’t allow them on their property. Instead of sending them to the pound or passing them on to a loved one, stay in one of our pet-friendly apartments and keep your pet as a part of the family!

 We do have a few restrictions on which types of dogs are allowed on the property, along with some recommendations of which dogs wouldn’t do well cooped up in apartments. Reach out to us directly if you don’t see your dog on the list and have additional questions.

5 Amenities to Look for in Your Apartment Community

Perhaps you are a college student, a newly married couple, or an actor just moving to the big city. Regardless of what stage you’re in, it’s all about the amenities. Studies show that loving the space you are in can contribute to your happiness on a daily basis. However, you can only love the apartment you are in if it has all of the amenities that contribute to a comfortable lifestyle.

Every apartment community will offer different amenities. Knowing what you need in a living space will help with deciding on the perfect apartment for you. Besides location, a decent rent and basic aesthetic, deeply consider the things you will need on a daily basis to live well.

We’ve done the research for you and have compiled a list of 5 of an essential amenities for humans in the first world:

Laundry In Your Apartment Community

This is number one on our list for a reason. Laundry is something that many humans need to do regularly, perhaps multiple times a week if you’re married or have kids. You need an apartment with either in-unit laundry or laundry on site. The alternative is having your laundry sent out which can be costly. You also run the risk of the people doing your laundry losing your clothing or accidentally bleaching them.

Air Conditioning/Heat

Regardless of the climate in your locale, air conditioning is a necessity. You won’t be able to live comfortably without proper cooling or warmth. Fans don’t cut it in 2017. Find an apartment with a top-notch air conditioning system.

Amenities

Amenities can make or break an apartment community. Find a community that offers first-rate amenities. Many apartments offer a great swimming pool and a fitness center to their residents. Not only will you save money on your gym membership, you might even hit the gym more often with one in such close proximity.

Dishwasher

While washing dishes by hand isn’t the worst, it isn’t necessarily the ideal option. A dishwashing appliance in your apartment will help keep your kitchen clean as well as the dishes you’ll be eating off of.

Speedy Wi-Fi

The world revolves around access to wifi. In both schooling and business alike, a high internet speed can actually save you in both time and headache. Skip the possibility of your huge project due at midnight not uploading because of a slow Wi-Fi speed and snag an apartment with great internet.

Live Large

Even if your chosen apartment isn’t especially luxurious, you can get a lot of fantastic amenities for a pretty low cost, especially in Fort Wayne. Housing is (for the most part), quality and easy to come by.

Tips to Help you Organize your Apartment

Tips for Better Organization

Who couldn’t use a few new ideas for being more organized?  No matter the size of your living space, storage space is hard to come by.  Storage space can especially be rare in an apartment.  Here are some creative tips for finding more places to store your stuff!

Find “secret stashes” in your Apartment

  • Angle the couch or a big chair in the corner of a room and put storage boxes behind them
  • Put an attractive table cloth over a hall table or chair-side table cloth and store things underneath
  • Use flat, wheeled plastic storage bins under your bed to store things you use infrequently like extra linens or out of season clothes.

      

Utilize Wall Space

  • In the kitchen, use 3M Command Hooks on the walls to keep cooking utensils, potholders, and kitchen towels out of the drawers and within easy reach.
  • Clear up a lot of cabinet space by keeping large pots or infrequently used small appliances on top of cabinets or the refrigerator.

Be creative with furniture you have already:

  • Tall metal shelves from the garage can be repurposed for kitchen storage — holding dishes, pots and pans, cookbooks or food stored in closed canisters.
  • Put a tall bookcase near the front door — add hooks to the sides to hold keys, umbrellas, and jackets; put trays or bins on the shelves for storing shoes, gloves, scarves, and mail.
  • Use an old dresser for a TV stand — the drawers can hold remotes, DVDs, board games, and extra blankets or pillows.

Make what you have work better:

  • Place stacking shelves inside cupboards and cabinets to get more out of their open spaces
  • Shoe storage racks are handy over any door.  Throw them over the bathroom door in order to store bathroom essentials, such as your hairbrush, toothpaste, etc.  Or put one over your bedroom door to store other knick-knacks.

The key to staying ahead of the accumulation of too much stuff is to regularly do as most professional organizers recommend: take a good, hard look at your belongings and keep only the things you really love or really use.

At Willow Creek Crossing Apartments in Fort Wayne, we love to make our residents feel right at home. We hope this handy guide helps you to make the most out of your space!
