When looking at apartments for rent in Abilene, TX, you'll likely look at a number of factors. Budget and location will, of course, be considered. But what kind of apartment do you desire? Apartments come in a vast array of styles and varieties. Are you familiar with every type of apartment in existence? You might be surprised at how many there are.
To help you in your search, let's review some of the various apartment types out there.
Individually owned units, condominiums have similar amenities and features to traditional apartments. Sometimes condo owners will rent them out to others.
Over a parking garage or commercial space, here, there are likely four or five floors of apartments.
A private street entrance will accompany this two or one-bedroom house or building. Sometimes this apartment can be above a garage or shop and may involve two floors.
This is exactly what it sounds like. The apartment is in the area of a building that is underground – the basement.
Usually between 200 and 600 square feet, this small apartment includes a kitchenette or compact kitchen and has everything in one room – similar to a studio. It might, however, have a separate bedroom.
Most of the apartment is a "common area" but you'll have your own private bedroom. The rest you will share with others.
These apartment buildings are owned by shareholders rather than a single entity.
The name here gives it away. The perks you will receive here are generally considered above and beyond traditional amenities.
These apartment buildings are classified by the following:
High-rise – 12 floors or more
Mid-rise – between five and 12 floors
Low-rise – four floors or less
Here, you'll need to climb stairs to your apartment unless you live on the main level. There are no elevators. Then again, that allows you to save money.
Some people interchange this term with “studio apartment”, but there are slight differences. With no countertop or stove, a small kitchenette may still be contained in this type of apartment. You may also have a small sink and a mini refrigerator. Maybe a microwave.
Though a studio apartment is small, this is even smaller. A 400 square foot total space is not uncommon. Maybe even less!
If you think a studio will be too small but you still prefer a one-bedroom apartment, this could be your answer. Because you can use a section of it as an art studio, office, or a bedroom, it's considered "convertible".
Set around a garden area or green space, this is an apartment community that's a bit on the small side (maybe three floors). Don't expect an elevator in most of them.
These frequently have tall windows, high ceilings, and are larger than the similarly designed studio apartments named below.
Typically around 600 square feet, this small space – except for the bathroom and maybe a closet – is a singular open room. You may also hear this type of apartment referred to as an L-shaped studio or an alcove studio.
A cottage, cabin, or house that is either one and a half or one story tall. (It may have an open floor plan, be classified as cozy and small, and may possess a low-pitched roof.)
