Not Just a Laundry Room

Brownstone Laundry room

At Home Apartments is unique in many respects to other property management companies. We own our buildings and that pride shows. We frequently evaluate the condition and aesthetics of our properties. We do this to make our residents’ living experience as enjoyable as possible. This doesn’t stop at our apartment units themselves. For example: One overlooked aspect of many historic apartment buildings is their laundry and storage area. They are usually located in the basement or garden level, neglected for years and often forgotten.

We realized many years ago that these common areas and shared spaces should be celebrated and upgraded equally to the private living areas. Therefore, we’ve taken our historic laundry rooms and completely re-designed them to be just as inviting and comfortable as our newly renovated apartments. This starts with upgraded plumbing and electrical. Then – new drywall, windows, and a refinished floor. From there we install cabinets for storage and granite countertops for clothes folding space and easy clean-up. To finish it off we apply a fresh coat of paint. When space allows we include stainless steel folding tables, as well.

If we’re lucky, there will be space for a book-share library and a bulletin board for notes and news. We’re so happy to improve these rooms for the residents who call these beautiful buildings home.
