Co-living teaches millennials the value of creating experiences

Did you ever, as a child, dream of living with your friends?

 

In your dream, you live in a home with 32 rooms with one large dining area. You and your friends will all eat dinner together so that suddenly, washing the dishes isn’t such a chore because you have all this dynamic tangle of friends and family to help you. Today’s living spaces bring those childhood dreams to life, catering to Millennials’ need for a more sociable lifestyle minus the feeling of loneliness associated with living alone. Students and young professionals are increasingly turning to shared living spaces for comfort and camaraderie.

 

‘Adulting’ but Less Gruesome

Co-living accommodation is a cross between hotels and student housing. These living arrangements offer serviced rooms in shared apartments, usually with communal kitchens, lounges and bathrooms. It often caters to a specific demographic: upwardly mobile young professionals who want complete flexibility and convenience in their living situations. Modern co-living spaces eschew the version of ‘adulting’ most of us know. With most accommodations readily integrating furnishings, they shun the footwork involved in finding an apartment and acceptable roommates, while still living a sociable lifestyle. As mundane tasks, such as refilling toilet paper supplies, are bypassed, tenants have more time for creating social experiences, from movie nights to yoga classes.

Together is Better

For young people who tend to feel isolated in a big city, co-living options are a boon. These co-living setups are likely to be more conducive to happiness compared with living alone, as tenants get to maintain a social connection, most times with the same people or people close to them.
