If you own an apartment complex and you want to offer your tenants more amenities but you don't have a lot of space to work with, there are a few things you'll want to consider adding in your limited area. A lot of tenants are often looking for an apartment building that has a workout facility, tanning center or possibly a pool.
However, trying to get all of these items into a cramped space or inside the free area you have may be difficult. Here are a few things to consider when adding amenities and making changes.
A few pieces of cardio equipment and some free weights are great for your tenants. You can have a custom gym equipment company come in and measure the space, and then create a layout that will help you fit the most amount of equipment in the smallest amount of space. A treadmill, elliptical trainer and stationary bike are perfect cardio machines, and the company can custom install storage and options for free weights and other machines.
A tanning bed, or a stand up tanning machine can fit in an area that would hold a closet or appliance. This is an easy item to purchase used if you don't want to spend a lot of money, you just have to make sure that people remember to clean the machine when they are done, and that you have goggles available. You'll attract a lot of new tenants with this option.
If you don't have a lot of room on a patio or around a club house and you want to do a pool or hot tub, a swim spa option will do the trick. You can get a unit larger than a hot tub that runs currents so people can swim in place and get a workout, or they can turn the heat up and sit in the unit like it's a hot tub. Different models and sizes are available.
There are a lot of small things you can do that will make big changes when you are marketing your apartments for rent, and these are just a few top choices that will attract new tenants. To make sure that everything is installed correctly and that you have the permits or licenses you need, work with a professional installation team or contractor. That way, you can make sure that everything is perfect for your tenants.
