Whether you are interested in a two or a three bedroom apartment, many of our apartment homes offer the perfect layout for roommates. Basic benefits are included in our floor plans, like a split bedroom layout, two bathrooms, and two expansive walk-in closets. These features eliminate the struggle of deciding who gets the master bedroom because both rooms offer the same features (even if the bathroom is a little down the hall).
Each of our apartments in Winter Park, FL offers a variety of features added to complement your high-tech lifestyle from programmable NEST thermostats to USB outlets. It would be simple to add a few more items to make your luxury apartments a “smart” luxury apartment using additional technology like Alexa or Google Home.
For every negative story that floats about regarding roommates, there are multiple positive experiences. We have compiled a list of roommate tips for a successful roommate adventure:
Clean up after yourself: It should go without saying, but a lot of fights between roommates stem from someone not picking up after themselves. Return items like books to your room after using them in the living room. If you make a mess while you’re cooking, clean it up. Set up a rotating chore list with your roommate to help keep the apartment clean.
Speak up for yourself: If you are picky about which way the paper towels come off the roll or closing the cabinet doors when you’re done, be sure your roommate knows about these little quirks. Everybody will benefit from your honesty.
Ask before inviting people over: Nobody likes to come home to unexpected house guests. You have a right to host whomever you please in your apartment, but you should be mindful enough to alert your roommate. Maybe they have an early meeting at work or are studying for finals and need to find an alternative place to prepare. Make sure you inform your roommate in advance.
Replenish what you use: If you eat the last Pop-Tart out of the pantry, replace the box. If you notice the stockpile of toilet paper or other necessities in running low, replenish the supply. If your roommate bought cleaning supplies and you notice they are almost empty, buy the next round of supplies.
Most of these suggestions seem like obvious considerations; however, roommate spats could usually be avoided if they had only been mindful of these suggestions.
