What ‘Luxury’ Apartment Living Means

Looking for Louisville luxury apartments? If so, you may find that “luxury” is a subjective term – similar to “nice” or “upscale.”  No guidelines exist regarding what features a luxury apartment must include, but when you see a true luxury apartment in person, you’ll know.

Defining Luxury

On a fundamental level, the real estate profession defines luxury apartments as homes that appeal to people who could afford to buy a house but prefer apartment life because of:


  • Amenities – Features inside apartments and throughout the property that make life more convenient


  • Location – Many luxury apartments are in or near downtown Louisville, where houses are in short supply


  • Commitment – Apartment living is free of the responsibilities of owning a home (such as maintenance and repairs)


Those factors are just a baseline. It’s the details that make a community truly luxurious.

A Cut Above

A swimming pool is “nice” – a saltwater pool is “luxury.” When you visit a luxury apartment community and tour the common areas, you’ll notice that the spaces are well planned and inviting. Shared outdoor spaces aren’t just grassy expanses – you should see amenities such as grilling stations and several types of seating areas.


Interior shared areas should be colorful and inviting, with perks that include gaming areas, a media lounge, coffee bar, and a business center. A commercial-quality fitness center is a must.

Apartment Features

Details that add elegance to an apartment include crown molding, pendant lighting, stainless steel appliances, a built-in wine rack, and craftsman-quality cabinetry.


Pet-Friendly Amenities

Increasingly, discerning renters are looking for more than a pet-friendly community – they want amenities specifically for dogs. A private dog park and dog-washing spa are two highly desirable amenities that the best apartments provide.
