At Anyplace, we offer co-living space options for people looking to experience and benefit from this new form of housing. You may have already heard the term, but like many people, don’t know what it means. To help educate you, you will find out on this page what co-living spaces are exactly, what they are not and what are the main benefits and reasons for considering them as accommodation.
What Does Co-Living Mean?
Co-Living is a modern version of a very traditional housing idea. It involves many people living together within one shared space. It is designed to encourage a spirit of collaboration and interaction with one another. Many are run by companies and have been created through necessity more than anything. The necessity for young people moving into big and expensive cities looking for work and a place to stay they can afford.
The concept is new because it not only means you share the costs of living together, but the values, intentions and interests of everyone staying under the same roof. The idea is directly derived from the so-called sharing economy.
What are Co-Living Spaces Like?
Although there may be layout and amenity differences from one co-living space to the next, there are some core features that are found in the majority. Normally, for instance, co-living residents get their own bathroom and bedroom. All other areas in the property, like the living and cooking areas, are shared.
What is the Purpose of Co-Living Spaces?
Taking it from a practical point of view, co-living spaces help young professionals afford a reasonably comfortable place to live as everyone all the expenses, like the living space, are shared. While the prices are different depending on the city and the company behind a co-living space, they are always cheaper than more conventional rent charges.
What Co-Living Spaces Are Not?
Many people misunderstand co-living spaces. They think student dorms, hostels and even hippie communes. Though it may share some characteristics with these other forms of dwellings, it is different because it is geared up to modern, working, young professionals.
Before you decide whether co-living spaces, like those offered by Anyplace, is something for you, consider some of the benefits as outlined below.
Key Benefits of Co-Living Spaces
One of the biggest benefits of co-living spaces is the reduced cost that usually comes with these kinds of shared accommodations. Depending on the property, at the very least residents can benefit from their own bathroom and bedroom along with shared kitchens, dining rooms and at most, gardens, media rooms, pools and even fitness centers.
Having these facilities, even the more basic of them, helps residents to save money they would spend if they had their own home or apartment. Even if the price is like a more traditional rent, as this is highly dependent on the area where the property is located, the fact is – you get everything included in the one overall price.
Amenities Are Shared
As noted briefly above, another major benefit of co-living spaces is the access to shared amenities, that are usable by all residents. If, for instance, you are looking to own a property with a fitness room, hot tub or even pool, or simply want a large kitchen, this is possible with co-living spaces.
Other shared amenities normally included are W-Fi, games consoles and all the bathroom supplies and kitchen supplies you need for a comfortable living area.
Access to a Support Network of Like-Minded People
Generally, people who move into co-living spaces form deep and meaningful relationships with their fellow residents. In time, as relationships develop and people get to know one another, a support network is created between people who have common goals, experiences and values.
