What Does a Typical Retirement Apartment Offer?

Published: 19 June 2018

These luxury retirement apartments are modern, light and airy and are finished to a very high standard to include built in quality appliances, high gloss cabinets in the kitchen and wet-room style bathrooms.



Once you step into an apartment, you enter the hallway which may include cupboard space that can be used as storage. The hallway then leads on to the kitchen, lounge and bedroom(s).



Kitchens are modern and usually include fully fitted integrated appliances, high gloss cupboards, double glazed windows and a slip resistant floor.


Dining Area/Lounge

The dining area/lounge is usually open plan and may open out to a Juliette balcony or walk out balcony. This allows lots of natural light to enter the apartment and the walk-out balcony comes with the bonus of having an additional seating area to sit and relax.


Apartments have either 1 or 2 bedrooms with floor to ceiling modern fitted mirrored cupboards offering plenty of additional storage space.


The bathrooms are also ultra-modern and offer a shower, bath or both. Some apartments have a wet-room style bathroom which is great if you have mobility issues because there is no shower tray. Many bathrooms are fitted with a safety pull cord and a slip resistant floor.

Windows are generally double or triple glazed and many of the apartments are sound proofed. Some apartments come with underfloor heating to heat the apartment quickly and efficiently and pets are allowed at many of the developments.

There are usually television and telephone sockets and an intercom on the front door with a camera that links to your television, so you can see who is at your front door.
