4 Tips for Finding the Ultimate Studio Apartment in Fort Myers

May 16, 2016

fort-myers-studio-apartment.jpgA studio apartment is a great solution for apartment dwellers who want their own space on a manageable budget. While you’ll enjoy all the conveniences of a quiet sleeping area and welcoming living space with a studio, you won’t have to worry about paying for space you don’t need. Use these tips to locate the Fort Myers studio apartment that will fit your needs.

1. Inventory Your Furniture

Take a quick inventory of what you own. Do you have a large couch and several lounge chairs? How about a dining room table, or spacious work desk? The right studio apartment will accommodate the items you do have, while offering handy solutions for anything you lack. For example, the kitchen counters in our Grand Courtyard Studios at Springs at Six Mile Cypress offer enough space for you to eat without the need for a dining room table. On the other hand, if enjoy having guests over for meals, you’ll likely prefer an apartment that will accommodate your  dining room table.

2. Check Your Closets

Consider how much storage space you need very carefully. Closet space is more generous in some studio apartments than others. If you’re struggling to find an apartment home with adequate room for your clothing, shoes, or other belongings, don’t forget to investigate some creative storage solutions. You can often find extra unused space beneath your bed or inside a living room ottoman.


3. Look at the Appliances

Studio apartments sometimes come with downsized appliances, such as a shorter fridge or smaller oven. If you don’t cook much, you might enjoy the space-saving convenience of such appliances. However, residents who like to entertain might want to focus on full-sized appliances. You should also check for a garbage disposal, ice maker, and microwave to make sure you’re prepared for anything that might be a deal-breaker for you.

4. Consider the Community

The apartment community that you choose will ultimately become an extension of your home. Though you may have limited space in a studio for entertaining, you can always turn to your community’s amenities for added space and entertainment. A community like Springs at Estero offers ample options for getting together with friends, such as the community clubhouse, resort-style pool, free coffee bar, and 24-hour fitness center.

When you keep the right considerations in mind, it’s easy to find a studio that’s well-suited to your lifestyle. Have tips for searching for a studio apartment in southwest Florida? Share them with other apartment hunters in the comments below.
