With the help of advanced planning and cutting-edge technologies introduced in the 21st century, the human race has come a long way in terms of the construction of vertical projects and skyscrapers. The skylines of our cities now look more futuristic than ever before, dominated by vertical developments promoting modernity and sustainability.
Since people are now more inclined toward vertical living, the real estate market has been stormed by apartment hunters in recent years, resulting in an imbalance of demand and supply. Most of the apartment buyers are millennials, probably in their thirties, who usually have high expectations and want an apartment project to fulfil most, if not all, of their lifestyle requirements.
So, in order to effectively address the demands of modern-day apartment seekers, real estate developers and stakeholders have now shifted their focus to creating high-end vertical complexes and equipping them with a myriad of lifestyle amenities.
Now, you may be wondering what are the most popular types of amenities offered these days and how they improve the vertical living experience for the residents of a particular project? To help you answer these questions, we have put together this thorough real estate guide about the different types of apartment amenities and their benefits.
Apartment amenities can be classified as luxuries. They are the non-essential features or services available in an apartment complex to enhance the experience of the residents. They may include gyms, pools, covered parking, laundry rooms, and in-house cinemas, among other features. The availability of apartment amenities may also vary from project to project, making every development unique.
No, the apartment amenities aren’t offered for free. The residents of an apartment complex may have to pay a certain amount every month as an amenity fee. For renters, it is often included in the property rent or building maintenance charges. The amount collected is generally utilised by the building management to keep the facilities up and running.
Now, let’s learn more about the two types of apartment amenities, listed and discussed below:
Building amenities, also known as community amenities, are shared by all the people living in a complex. In a masterfully planned project, building amenities are usually a part of communal spaces that are accessible by all the residents.
However, the accessibility and usage of these amenities are subjected to the rules and regulations set by the management of the building. Also, in most cases, community amenities offered by an apartment complex are only available to residents and their guests but not to the general public.

Private amenities, which are often referred to as in-unit amenities, are available within an apartment that can only be used by the residents of that particular unit.
The basic concept behind these types of apartment amenities is to offer a luxurious and comfortable living experience. This is why the availability of in-unit amenities has a direct impact on the real estate value of an apartment.
