Communal living is not a new idea, but luxury apartment buildings in Brentwood like NMS Villas have given it a modern twist. Co-living is a popular option for busy professionals and students in Brentwood because it combines the privacy of a traditional apartment with the community and the convenience of living with roommates. This unique type of living Arrangement is not for everyone, so it's important to understand exactly what co-living is, what to expect from a co-living suite, and if this type of apartment living is right for you.
Independence and Privacy
Co-living Suites give residents their own private bedroom, a place that is uniquely theirs and can be decorated and designed to reflect their style. This space features bedroom furniture, a fully furnished bathroom, and space to retreat from the rest of the house. Long gone are the days when co-living meant squeezing into a tiny bunk bed surrounded by strangers. Now, residents who choose the co-living lifestyle have their own bedroom, their own bed, and their own space to spread out and get comfortable.
Designed By Professionals
Co-living suites tend to be smaller than traditional apartments, but their designer finishes and amenities make up for what they lack in space. Each of NMS Residential’s furnished units is carefully curated by an in-house interior designer to provide the ultimate turnkey experience. Apartments feature hand-selected art collections that perfectly complement each building’s unique surroundings.
Properties like NMS Villas offer hand-selected modern finishes, including quartz countertops and built-in cabinetry. This eliminates the need to buy or bring bulky furniture to make the suite livable. When you move in, it’s already done.
One challenge that many new roommates face when moving into an apartment together is how to furnish their living areas. When you move into a co-living suite, this isn't an issue. Everyone moves into a fully furnished apartment that's already been decorated. Someone else has already found, furnished, and decorated the apartment before you move in. And even better, you don't have to argue about whose turn it is to clean these shared areas because professional housekeeping is part of the deal.
Community and Connection
While co-living suites are designed for privacy and space, they're also designed for community and connection. When you need to study quietly, rest, or just have your own time, your bedroom and personal space are perfect for this. But when you want to collaborate, share ideas and resources, study together, and make new friends, the shared living areas are perfect for socializing. Whether you share a living area, kitchen, or laundry space, co-living gives you the freedom and flexibility to be as social or independent as you want.
