Are you ready to move in with your significant other? Congratulations, and welcome to this awesome adventure! Before you take the plunge, make sure you find the perfect Camden apartment home to accommodate both of your needs. We recently posted about things to consider before cohabitating with a roommate. Now, here are a few things to consider when looking for your dream apartment with your signifcant other:
How big or small your first apartment together is a big decision. Living in a nice cozy studio is perfect for some couples, but a two-bedroom or townhome might be best for others. Consider what your needs are as a couple and what you can afford before starting your search.
Do you need an extra room for frequent guests? Having a spare bedroom may be a perfect idea. Your guests can have their own space and their own bathroom while in town visiting. Do you or your significant other work from home? Then an extra bedroom or an apartment with a den or flex space would work for you both. Some Camden communities even have floorplans with built-in desks for an easy WFH experience. Do you not mind being close? Then a studio is a seamless choice for you both. If you need a minute alone, you can head out on your Camden patio or balcony or visit any of our excellent amenities.

Downtown life and suburban living are two completely different lifestyles. Do you want to be surrounded by the hustle and bustle? Living downtown is for you! From many of our downtown/urban communities, you can walk to fantastic shopping, restaurants, bars and museums. For example, Camden South Capitol is right across from the Nationals baseball stadium, and Camden Pier District is a 5-minute walk from the famous Dali Museum.
Don’t want to live in an urban community? Don’t worry; we have plenty of amazing options for you! Many of our suburban garden-style communities are in sought-after neighborhoods and locations. Many conveniences such as a grocery store, yummy restaurants and entertainment are just a short walk or drive away.
Another factor to consider is your commute to your office. How far are you willing to drive? Do you want to live close to your office, or is driving and listening to a podcast your “me time” every day? Factoring in your commute is very important on deciding on a perfect location. At Camden, we are located in the most desirable neighborhoods of your city. You will find the ideal location that works for you both.

Our Camden communities have some wonderful amenities! Make sure you decide as a couple what amenities are MUST haves and what are nice to have. You are in luck; all of our communities have beautiful pools where you can relax on our lounge chairs and soak up the sun. No need for a gym membership! There is a fitness center with cardio equipment, weight machines, and more in every Camden community.
Some communities have unique amenities. Do you need a conference room for an important work meeting? We have that at Camden Lake Eola, Camden Central, and more! Need a recording studio? Camden Music Row and The Camden have jam rooms to create your perfect tune. Make sure to check out all amenities at each community you tour. Just want to have a nice place to read a book or work from home area outside of your apartment? Most Camden communities have beautiful resident lounges and community workspaces for your enjoyment.

If you have pets, Camden is a perfect place to call home. We love pets! Dogs, cats, birds, we welcome them all! Many of our communities have dog parks where your four-legged friends can play, and you can meet some of your awesome neighbors. Get your pup fresh and clean at our onsite Paw Spa washing station. Some first-floor apartment homes even have private yards attached so your pets can bask in the sun all day.
We can’t wait for you to make Camden your home today. We have many options for you to easily tour our communities and fall in love with your perfect apartment home!
