When searching for an apartment in Orlando, access to laundry facilities can be a big selling point for a potential new living space. For a person who needs to do laundry frequently, proximity to convenient laundry accommodations are important. Thankfully, apartments in Orlando offer a variety of options including on-site laundry centers, in-unit washers and dryers, and seperate laundry.
No washer or dryer? No problem! Not having a washer or dryer inside your apartment is quite common in most cities, so Orlando is no different. On-site laundry facilities provide a common area for residents to take care of their laundry needs. Some communities have one large room with rows of washer and dryer machines available while others may have a room on each row of the building designated for laundry. Though the machines aren't directly in your unit, with more than one washer and dryer available at a time, you may have the luxury of doing multiple loads at once to speed up the process. Community laundry facilities are exclusive to residents and usually require some form of payment whether it be coins or an electronic payment card. The cost of laundry facilities in your community would be something important to inquire about beforehand.
Washer and Dryer Included
If communal laundry facilities are not quite what you're looking for, you may prefer an Orlando apartment with a washer and dryer included. With a washer and dryer in your apartment, you can conveniently do laundry whenever you want without the hassle of having to haul your clothes and detergent elsewhere. Although you likely won't be able to do multiple loads at a time, as you would in a larger laundry room, you will be in your home allowing you to multitask and get other things done between loads. With this option, you can also easily start a load and leave without having to worry about abandoning your clothes. Some communities include the washer and dryer in the rent, while others charge a monthly fee in addition to your existing rent.
Having a washer and dryer in your Orlando apartment is convenient, but some communities really go the extra mile with separate laundry. Orlando apartments with separate laundry provide an extra room or space in your apartment specifically for your laundry needs. Apartments with this feature can come with a washer and dryer included or they may have washer and dryer hookups for you to bring in your own appliances. The separate laundry room will also often include other features to make doing laundry more convenient like storage shelves and clothing hooks. This space is great for people who have a lot of laundry to do, especially if you live with roommates. Separate laundry is perfect for apartments with two or more bedrooms.
