If you’ve lived in a city for a while, you know that any convenience that makes life easier – food delivery services or in-apartment concierge services, for example – has an out-sized impact on your day-to-day life. 

That’s why when looking for apartments, keeping an eye out for amenities that offer convenience is key. In-unit laundry might not be as flashy as a pool deck – but when it comes to making your life easier, this apartment feature ranks highly on our list.

Why in-unit washers are dryers are so convenient

There are a few reasons that having laundry an arm’s length away is so helpful:

  • You’re saved from lugging your stuff up and downstairs. The alternative to in-unit laundry is usually either having your laundry in a communal building space (usually the basement) or having to outsource it all together. The obvious perk of keeping laundry so close is not having to move your clothing very far.
  • Multiple loads! When your laundry options are so far away, it usually deters you from running separate cycles for dark colors, light colors and delicates. But with in-unit options, you can run as many loads as are necessary.
  • No communal wear-and-tear. Most communal laundry machines are industrial grade because of such heavy use by so many people. Conversely, in-unit washers and dryers, especially in luxury buildings, are often of a much higher grade – which is great news for your clothes.
  • Use in a cinch. Whether you’re dealing with sweaty gym clothes or a mess from your pet, nothing is more convenient than the ability to throw things in the laundry at a moment’s notice.
