I like to entertain and throw dinner parties. What amenities should I look for in a UCF apartment?

In my world, it's pretty much inevitable that my friends will come over for dinner. So, having the perfect space to entertain my guests is a priority. A good way to make everyone happy is through their bellies. Having a spacious, up-to-date kitchen to cook that perfect meal in is half the battle. Many apartments near UCF have awesome kitchen amenities that will help you wow your guests; the only thing it won't be able to do is cook the meal for you!

Upgraded Kitchen

The worst part about cooking or entertaining is the clean-up. Apartments with upgraded kitchens often have granite or stone countertops. These are simple to wipe clean and you don't have to worry about stains. There is nothing worse than a white countertop with an ugly wine stain on it. Guests will admire your matching stainless-steel appliances, which look sleek and elegant but make clean up a breeze. One of the best upgrades to your University of Central Florida apartment would be the glass top stove. Not only is it easy to clean but features on the stove make burning your food next impossible. With these features, cooking is basically fool proof!

Kitchen Island

When entertaining, space to cook all of your food can be an issue. You can easily avoid this problem with a kitchen island! Whether you need extra storage space for all of your pots and pans, extra seats for your guests or space for that five-course meal you're cooking, a kitchen island will certainly prove useful. If aren't sure if a kitchen island is an amenity you need, you
can always add one in later. Check out these kitchen island ideas which are perfect if you're on a budget.


Dinner is done and you're full, meaning the last thing you want to do is wash the dishes. Good thing that apartments near UCF offer kitchens with dishwashers. There is nothing worse than waking up to a sink full of dirty, smelly dishes from the night before. Another perk of having a dishwasher in your UCF apartment is that you can put dishes in as you use them and wash
them all at once. If germs are what you are worried about, there is no need! Dishwashers go through a few sanitizing cycles and can reach temperatures of up to 130 degrees Fahrenheit. Dishwashers also save you precious time. With the push of a button you can run your dishwasher while you are on the way out the door for work or class. Imagine what you can do with all of that saved time!

Now it's time to put your chef's hat on and invite some friends over for a night of good food and fun. Bon Appetit!
