While searching for an apartment can be fun, there are many things to consider before making a decision.
You won’t be able to tell exactly what a property looks like from pictures alone, which makes it difficult to figure out if the apartment meets your requirements.
Choosing an apartment may seem as easy as finding an available listing within your budget and signing a lease. However, you may find yourself in a less-than-ideal living situation down the road.
Whether it’s your first rental experience or you’re an expert renter, finding the perfect apartment that fits your lifestyle and needs isn’t going to be easy. Before you sign that lease, we’ve compiled a list of important considerations to keep in mind while apartment hunting.
A Convenient Layout
When touring potential apartments, most people focus on the square footage.
While that’s an important factor to consider, how the space is used determines its functionality and can make rooms seem bigger than they are.
The number of bedrooms and bathrooms is usually determined by how many people will be living in the apartment. Other layout considerations such as open and closed floor plans affect the types and sizes of furniture to use, how to arrange them, and how much storage space you have available.

Location, Location, Location
Living in an apartment that adds more time to your commute is not ideal.
Think about where you go regularly, whether that’s school, work, or otherwise, and centralize your search based on convenient access to these places. If your favoured area doesn’t meet your budget needs, you’ll have to decide which amenities are most important for you to be close to.
For some, living slightly farther than their work or school is fine if they have access to a personal vehicle. For those who walk, cycle, or use public transportation, proximity is a big element to keep in mind.
Le Louvre is located beside the Century Park LRT station. This makes commuting to the city very easy! It’s only a 20-minute ride to Central Station in downtown Edmonton.
Plenty of Storage Space
The words “storage space” and “apartment” very rarely go hand in hand, as most rented homes have limited space to keep your extra belongings.
Nobody wants to feel cramped and nobody wants to pay extra for secondary storage space, so while it’s great to have a big bedroom closet, it’s not the only storage area to inspect.
Personal hygiene items, cooking utensils, towels, sheets, and pots and pans all need a place to go, which is why you should check out the kitchen and bathroom cabinets to make sure everything will fit.
