The benefits of apartment living

Whether you’re a first time buyer or looking to downsize, there’s so much to love about living in a flat. We’ve listed just a few of the best reasons to consider an apartment if you’re thinking about moving into a new home.

Open plan living

Plenty of apartments make use of open plan living. One of the main benefits of an open plan home is the maximisation of space, which can make a world of difference - rooms will be brighter, they’ll feel bigger, and you’ll have more freedom to create a room layout that works for you. Space that would otherwise be taken up by walls can be used for seating, plants or whatever else takes your fancy.

A great first step

Getting onto the property ladder can seem daunting or even impossible at times, but a flat is a brilliant way to start your journey as a homeowner. Whether you’d like to one day own a London townhouse or you dream of living a rural lifestyle, starting with an apartment helps you settle into the intricacies of owning a property while you plan for your next step, whatever that may be. 

Communal spaces

Flats regularly benefit from private balconies where you can enjoy some low maintenance outdoor space. You’ll also find that many apartment complexes have communal open spaces for you to enjoy when the sun’s out too. Some have terraces, some have lawns, some have courtyards and benches - these outdoor havens are ideal for relaxing and socialising in the sun with friends, family or your neighbours.

Personalise your space 

Often, you’ll have the chance to reserve an apartment at one of our developments before it’s been built. If that’s the case, you’ll have the opportunity to personalise your new home to suit your taste. From choosing the perfect bathroom to fine-tuning the fixtures and lighting, you can pick everything ahead of time with complete confidence. 

Home office ready

More people are working from home than ever before, but the idea of a ‘home office’ is often associated with large houses and spare rooms. If you live in a flat, you can absolutely have a home office - all it takes is a little creative use of space. Whether you allocate a corner of the living room for working or you prefer to work at the dining table, you can make a comfortable, productive home working space that suits your needs.
