Picking a Floor Plan
You’re ready to choose your next apartment home and are excited to begin the process! But then you get hit with the loaded question: which floor plan would you like? This is an excellent question and one you should take some time to consider. Here are some tips to guide you to the right floor plan for your needs.
An important part of any home is the storage it offers. You want to know you can comfortably fit your belongings and still have some room to grow. Some things to look out for include:
- Vertical space for stacking storage
- Closet space for clothing and footwear storage
- Cabinet/pantry space for food storage
- Extra space, like a convenient coat closet or area like the exterior storage in most units at 82 Flats at the Crossing (We also offer additional storage spaces you can rent!)
Of course, everyone’s needs are different, so ask yourself how much you’d fill each storage area. If you come up with less than 50%, the space may be too big. If you come up with more than 80%, the space may be too small. You want room for what you have, plus a little more.
#2: The Kitchen
This is a critical part of making you feel at home in your apartment, but it’s easy to figure out what you need. If you love to cook, then you should look for:
- Ample counter space
- Plenty of cabinet space
- Bonus space, like a breakfast bar or stool-seating area
Not every apartment has expansive kitchens, so take time to look carefully. 82 Flats apartments near Keystone at the Crossing are unique because every unit, from the smallest square footage to the largest, includes stainless steel appliances, a pantry, and an expanded counter with room for stool seating.
At some point, you’re bound to have some friends over, and you’ll need to make sure you have room to host them. When you’re looking at floor plans or taking a tour, think about:
- Seating areas
- Open spaces
- Bathroom access
It can be difficult to find an apartment that fills all of these needs but be sure your top priorities are met. For example, units at 82 Flats feature a bar for stools, a living area, a dining area, and an outdoor space. You could feasibly have 4 seating areas available at once. This would make it easy to host a good number of guests.
#4: Outdoor/Community Spaces
You may be wondering what the outdoors and community spaces have to do with floor plans. Well, while an outdoor space or communal area may not be part of your floor plan, they will impact your ability to enjoy being outside or to host a larger group of people than your apartment could fit. Take time to look for:
- Outdoor space included with the floor plan, like a deck or patio
- Outdoor community space, like a playground or other green space
- Additional communal areas, like a pool, lounge, business center, etc.
Some apartment homes come with a number of resident perks, so be sure to ask about them during your tour. 82 Flats at the Crossing has a multitude of community-shared spaces, including a media lounge, saltwater pool, cyber cafe, game room, fitness center, business center, and more. You want to feel at home not just in your apartment but in your community.
