What to Expect from Your Corporate Housing Kitchen

If you’re planning an extended trip to Saint Louis, you area probably trying to figure out how much everything is going to cost you. One day-to-day expense that can add up is quickly is your meals. Whether you are ordering room service or eating out frequently, the cost of your trip can raise quickly when your dining options are limited.

Your corporate apartment will be spacious and equipped with everything you need to make a smooth transition after the move. Here are some of things that are nearly guaranteed to be inside of your St. Louis corporate apartment:

Improving the Quality of Your Dining Experience

Your corporate rental will come with a dining room table along with seating for 2-4 people depending on the apartment size. Enjoy some alone time over a hearty dinner or invite a friend or colleague over for a home-cooked meal.

Everything You Need for a Tidy Kitchen

On top of all the amenities you get, you will also have everything you need to keep your kitchen clean. After all, your corporate apartment in St. Louis will be your home away from home for the next few weeks or months – you should not be left empty handed. Your rental will include several cleaning-friendly amenities, including:

  • Paper towels and hand towels
  • Dishwasher and dish soap
  • Mop, mop pail, broom, and dust pan
  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Full-size trash can
  • Ample storage

Nearly all corporate housing units comes with the household items you need so moving does not have to be a lot of work. However, if you find yourself in need of additional items, you can always reach out to your corporate housing provider. Unlike hotel rooms, corporate housing units are customized to meet the needs of the person who is staying there. Make sure everything suits your lifestyle, from the furniture in the apartment to the cleaning products you have at your disposal.  

Additional Amenities for the Workaholic

Some of our St. Louis Corporate Housing clients are so tied up in their work, cleaning is the last thing they want to do. If you’re expecting to be busy or out of the house a lot, consider asking your corporate housing provider about maid services. 

You can also choose to have a pre-stocked refrigerator and/or pantry in your apartment. That way, you won’t have to worry about going to the store or finding a nearby shopping center right after you arrive.

As you can see, St. Louis corporate housing units offer a lot more than traditional hotel rooms in terms of flexibility.  Even extended stay facilities with kitchenettes are restricted in the amount of space and type of features offered.      

Corporate housing gives renters the opportunity to travel light and enjoy their stay thanks to a more personalized approach. Your food options won’t be limited by a hotel menu or the restaurants nearby. You can even entertain and cook for guests by taking advantage of the spacious area inside of your apartment. You will be able to prepare nearly everything you would at home, from a light breakfast in the morning to a full-course meal for friends and family in the evening.
