This 3/2 Bungalow is roomy and convenient, just minutes away from downtown Royal Oak with easy freeway access. The eat-in kitchen looks good with dark stained wood cupboards over a tile floor and granite counters opposite a modern gas stove. A ceiling fan over the eating area will keep the place comfortable even in warmer weather. The wide dual-basin stainless steel sink with its extra-tall faucet and built-in spray nozzle are perfect for doing the dishes. Just behind the kitchen, a sizable laundry room has a side door that opens to the garage, so it's easy to bring in your groceries. In the downstairs bathroom, the wide-bowl sink and tile floors and backsplash are stylish, and the convenient built-in wire shelving in the shower makes the perfect place to put razors, shampoo, and lather thingies. The upstairs bathroom (off the master bedroom) features a classic pedestal sink & commode with a shower. The living room and family room, which make up most of the downstairs, share a light-toned hardwood floor. The family room has a ceiling fan and the sliding glass door that opens onto a patio & fenced back yard, and the living room stairs lead up to the three bedrooms. Those three bedrooms are clad in wall-to-wall carpet to keep the toes warm, and a bespoke dresser and shelving in the shared hallway make for a great place to put communal stuff. One of the bedrooms has unique chalkboard walls, perfect for doodling all over. Another, the master bedroom, is slightly larger and has its own bathroom. Outside, a 1.5 car detached garage offers more storage for a car, some stuff, or both. The fenced-in backyard is great for an afternoon barbeque party. Rent is $1,899 per month and the security deposit required is 1 to 1 1/2 months depending on qualifications. Viewing is by appointment only and you can move in immediately.

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with hardwood floors in Royal Oak, MI

Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Royal Oak 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.
