Luxury Apartments in Tempe

When you think about luxury apartments, what comes to mind first? For many people, the price tag is first to surface, but luxury is about more than an increase in rent. You pay higher rent prices because you're getting something that you wouldn't enjoy from apartments that rent for much less. This often starts with a safer neighborhood close to the best schools, but there are many other things that you should look for when shopping for luxurious apartments in Tempe.

Energy-Efficient Appliances

When you walk into a luxury Tempe apartment, you should see freshly painted walls in attractive colors, well-maintained floors and full-sized appliances that won't run up your energy bill unnecessarily. You may have the financial standing to pay whatever the electric company demands, but that doesn't mean that you want to throw your money in that direction.

Look for upscale apartments with updated appliances that aren't worn out from too many previous tenants. Of course, this also means that all kitchen appliances should match in color and style because aesthetic beauty is one perk that a luxury apartment should always deliver. If the apartment comes with a washer and dryer, make sure that it is energy-efficient and in excellent condition as well.

Fine Details

Once you check the appliances and look at the condition of the floors, walls and ceilings, look for less obvious signs of a well-designed apartment. Here are some of the little things that can make a big difference in the appearance and vibe of your living space:

Crown molding
Vaulted ceilings
Skylights
Spacious bathrooms
Hardwood floors
New carpeting
Jacuzzi tubs
Built-in bookcases

You may also expect your luxury apartment to have a private balcony or patio that extends your living space and allows you to entertain guests on warm Arizona nights. If you're sharing with a roommate or have a large family, you may also want to find an apartment that has at least as many bathrooms as bedrooms.

Walk-In Closets & Storage Space

Do you watch television and envy the massive closets that many celebrities enjoy? Luxury apartments should bring that dream into your reality. If the master bedroom doesn't have a walk-in closet, it should at least have a large closet that allows you to organize and store a large volume of shoes and clothing. Large luxury apartments may even feature connecting rooms that you could turn into a bedroom and adjoining walk-in closet with mirrors and a vanity table.

Consider the amount of storage space throughout the apartment as a whole. This may include on-site storage areas that you can use outside of your apartment, but make sure that these areas are private and that you are the only tenant with a key. If your apartment comes with a parking garage, you may have adequate space for storage there as well.

Secure, Covered Parking Spaces

You shouldn't leave your car sitting out in the hot sun and cold rain when you're paying for a luxury apartment. Look for rental units that come with covered parking areas used exclusively for residents. If you live with a roommate or a significant other, you may also need to verify that you can have two or more parking spaces for your apartment. Some luxury apartments will even give you a private garage, but you may have to pay a bit more in rent to take advantage of this amenity.

On-Site Amenities

Would you enjoy taking your kids or your friends to the community swimming pool on a beautiful Saturday afternoon? Maybe an on-site dog park would save you a lot of time over driving your pooch to a nearby park. Some luxury Tempe apartments even offer community walking trails, playgrounds, grills, picnic tables and gardens. Some family-friendly communities may offer basketball or tennis courts or an indoor recreational facility, so make sure to consider all of your options if you want to live an active lifestyle.

Responsive, Skilled Maintenance Technicians

This is one of the most important things to ask about when you consider upscale apartments. When something in your apartment breaks or you don't think something is working up to your standards, you should get an immediate response from technicians well trained to handle your concerns. They should fix minor problems before they turn into major problems, and you should always feel respected when you interact with managerial staff.

What about Advanced Technology?

If you think all of those bonuses are enough for your luxury apartment space, there are a lot of other things that you may find in some communities. You may have the ability to program your thermostat so that it turns on and off according to your daily schedule. When it rains outside, your windows may shut themselves to prevent leaking. You may even have a whole-house water purification system or speakers built into the walls. While you won't find many Tempe apartments with these advanced features today, you can guarantee that they will become more common in the future.
