5 Appliances for Modern Luxury Apartment Buildings

appliances for modern luxury apartment

In cities all around the country, more and more luxury apartment buildings are popping up. And those individuals who will move into them are going to expect top-of-the-line amenities and touches —- including kitchen appliances. 


People spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Just because someone chooses not to invest in purchasing a single-family home does not mean they are willing to accept a lackluster apartment kitchen. 

If you want to attract high-quality tenants, then you need to attract them with a stylish kitchen they will enjoy spending time in. Pay extra attention to the fine details and you will find you are able to keep that vacancy rate low. 

Here are 5 appliances for modern luxury apartment buildings. 

1. Contemporary Electric Range

What exactly does contemporary mean? Contemporary-style appliances are clean and simple with the ability to work with any design style. Yet, they can make a bold statement from the moment you walk into the space. 

Don’t think that any basic appliance is hiding behind the sleek, refined look. Rather, THOR Kitchen’s 30-inch contemporary professional electric range goes above and beyond to provide you with the aesthetics and functionality that will make happy tenants. 

The features of this range include:

  • Four healing elements
  • 4.8 cubic foot oven capacity
  • Black glass top
  • LED display screen
  • Convection fan for even cooking
  • Heavy-duty control knobs for longevity
  • Large oven window

Built with strength and durability, you won’t have to worry about late-night repair calls. And that’s a definite win. 

2. Microwave Drawer

Let’s be realistic— many luxury apartments come with incredible amenities, great layouts, and even a few bonus perks, but they don’t always come with the most kitchen countertop space. Of course, with all the small appliances found in most kitchens today, such as a coffee and/or espresso maker, air fryer, blender, and the like, taking up countertop space with a microwave can be a turnoff. 

If a tenant had to pick between microwaved chicken nuggets and their morning Americano, they are likely to pick the latter. 

So, what do you do? A microwave drawer has all your answers. 

As its name suggests, this 24-inch microwave drawer by THOR Kitchen sits just like a drawer under the countertop. This keeps it off the counter while still being very accessible. It slides out so that food can be placed down inside of it just like placing something in a drawer. 

This particular stainless steel microwave is spacious with 12 sensor functions, 10 power modes, auto touch open/close control, a warming function, and so much more. It is the perfect solution. 

3. French Door Refrigerator

Keeping with the theory that most apartment kitchens don’t have the greatest amount of space, a French-door refrigerator can be a fantastic choice. 

A refrigerator is quite an important appliance in any kitchen with its primary purpose of storing stuff — perishable stuff. That means when it comes to choosing one for an apartment, you don’t really want to sacrifice space. After all, there are few things worse than not knowing how in the world you are going to store a jug of milk upright in a tiny fridge. Since you don’t want anyone crying over spilled milk, you are going to want to give your tenants what they want — a full-size refrigerator. 

How you make it even more beneficial is with the French doors. They will require much less space to open and close which allows them to be a great fit, even for small spaces. Plus, because it sits flush with the countertop, it won’t stick out and make the space look crowded. 

THOR Kitchen has different models of refrigerators to choose from. However, you can expect them all to come with some remarkable features, such as generous storage space, door storage, crisper drawers, showcase LED lighting, adjustable shelves (protect that milk), automatic ice maker, door alarm, and more. 

4. Dishwasher

You cannot promote a luxury apartment and then expect the tenant to hand wash dishes. Do you see how one just doesn’t go with the other? That’s right, you need a dishwasher. 

Giving your tenants the ability to place their dishes in the dishwasher — and forget them until later when they are clean and ready to put away is something they are likely looking for. Welcome them home with a stainless steel dishwasher that fits the space. 

THOR Kitchen’s dishwasher packs a punch with its features and professional design. The stainless steel finish blends beautifully with other appliances for a uniform look. All the while it won’t break the bank or take up too much space. 

The features are what take this dishwasher to the next level.

  • Smart wash system that senses how dirty the dishes are
  • Powerful spray arms for thorough coverage
  • Adjustable racks to get those big items clean
  • Water and energy-efficient
  • Removable utensil basket

To top it off, the dishwasher is very quiet. And, that’s important when you are referring to smaller apartment spaces. 

5. Outdoor Kitchen Suites

Though it may not be an option everywhere, those luxury apartment buildings with some green space could seriously benefit from an outdoor kitchen. 

Think about it this—- when you need to justify charging higher-than-average rent, then you need to prove the value to potential tenants. Since most apartment buildings don’t allow grills due to fire safety, why not give your tenants a place to come together with friends, family, and neighbors? 

An outdoor kitchen suite, whether by a pool, playground, or both can be a great selling point. 

What better way to complement an apartment with a stellar indoor kitchen?

THOR Kitchen offers you everything you need to create the perfect outdoor cooking space — 

There isn’t much more your tenants could ask for when it comes to creating the perfect living space in your luxury apartments.
