Creating a Family-Friendly Sanctuary within Your Apartment

Aug 10, 2021

Apartment living suits a range of lifestyles, including families of all shapes and sizes. With the demand for family-friendly apartments on the rise, we’ve highlighted all the things both you and your little ones will love about your Caydon apartment, every single day.

More Aussie kids are growing up in apartments than ever before. According to 2016 Census data, the number of families living in apartments with children increased by a whopping 56% between 2011 and 2016, and that number continues to rise.

With house prices continuing to escalate, buying a home within premium inner-city locations can often seem out of reach. Apartments, on the other hand, can make this dream a reality. With the increased demand for low maintenance apartment living, it’s becoming a higher priority to consider the evolving needs of families though clever home design.

At Caydon, premium features like durable engineered timber flooring, European appliances and abundant storage come as standard, while our vibrant shared spaces can improve daily life for all of our residents – both young and old.

Of course, this is just the beginning. Discover other ways we’re catering to families of all shapes and sizes, along with some ideas for further maximising your spaces to benefit both you and your little ones.


 

Creating zones can help define both spaces and routines

Flexible furniture is your new best friend. While bedrooms should primarily be places of rest, moveable study desks can become dedicated homework areas, to be neatly tucked away when not in use. Alternatively, an open-plan layout means younger children can utilise the dining table for homework while you prepare dinner, allowing you to multi-task like a pro.

In the evenings, home automation routines can be programmed so overhead lighting switches off and lamps switch on, signifying that it’s time for the kids to unwind with a few chapters of their favourite book.

Furniture and lighting are essential in creating zones, along with helping to define routines and rituals that we know children thrive on.

 

 

Safety features for a worry-free lifestyle

For families with younger children in particular, safety is always front of mind. Our apartment buildings are equipped with cutting-edge security features to ensure our residents feel secure, both when at home and when away.

All Caydon buildings require double-swipe access into the lobbies, lifts and shared spaces, while CCTV surveillance is fitted throughout. Guard rails are also in place on elevated spaces like balconies and rooftop terraces.




Shared spaces become your backyard

Apartment living with Caydon means world-class shared spaces become your backyard. From gardens to swimming pools and rooftop terraces, the little ones can enjoy an array of environments and adventures each and every day.

We’re committed to incorporating green open spaces within all of our developments, meaning playtime has no limits and screen time can easily be kept to a minimum.


When you’d prefer to head out and about, your apartment is located within reach to local parks, playgrounds, walking tracks and more. It’s called our 10|20 living model, and it means you’re never more than 10 minutes away from the CBD or 20 minutes from the everyday essentials.

 

 

You’ll love low-maintenance living

When you purchase an apartment, you’re bidding farewell to many additional household chores like mowing the lawns, clearing the gutters and even taking the bins out.

This low-maintenance way of living could even give you more hours in the day – whether that’s to help the kids with their homework, play board games or simply enjoy your thriving neighbourhood together.
