City Guide for Derby, KS

The air is so pure and the breezes so fine, the zephyrs so balmy and light, that I would not exchange my home here to range forever in azures so bright. The Kansas state song, "Home on the Range," could add a new verse about the town of Derby. This small city not too far from Wichita has much to sing about.

Situated nearly a half an hour southeast of Wichita, the city of Derby, Kansas, rests neatly within the middle of the nation's heartland. For a town of just over 22,000 residents, Derby combines the easy-going nature of the plains with a suburban vibrancy that provides just enough kick to everyday life. While not bothered by the hustle and bustle of a big metropolis scene, the town makes the most of its comfortably tranquil city life with a wealth of community activities and plenty of space for a variety of recreational activities. Whether you fancy the culture of the Derby Historical Museum or the adventure of the Rock River Rapids, Derby has the right atmosphere and friendly company you'll enjoy. See more

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with hardwood floors in Derby, KS

Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Derby renters. They`re typically a beautiful addition to your space. They’re also easier to clean and sweep, particularly if you have pets.

However, there are some downsides. Hardwood floors carry sounds. They can also make your apartment noisy for your roommates and downstairs neighbors.

Ask the landlord or property manager about the hardwood floors before signing a lease. Are they actually hardwood or a popular composite alternative? The latter is probably easier to clean and care for than the real thing.

It’s also important to ask about who’s responsible for any damage to the floors and what that entails. Your security deposit could take a hit from scratches, dents, and other damage.

Consider the type of climate you live in. Hardwood floors typically don’t fare well in damp climates full of moisture. Stains and buckling are common in hardwood floors after rain flooding or excessive moisture.

However, hardwood floors can be ideal for dry climates or sunny areas for renters who love the way they look.
