The Best Ways to Live Like a Rock Star in your Apartment

  |     |   Amenities, Apartments, Renting Tips

Let’s face it you’re not the same as everyone else. While some folks remain grounded, you tend to reach for the stars! And even if you don’t have the big budget of a rock-and-roll-star, living in a rental apartment on Long Island or New York City doesn’t mean you have to curb your lifestyle, or your ambitions. Below are some great tips and tricks to help you live the rock-star-life in your new apartment.

A Cheap Trick

Rock out your kitchen; add a black coffee maker and other black and chrome appliances to your apartments’ counter tops. Decorate your cabinets with music-gear-themed handles or knobs. Next, bring in a black lacquer dining room table and chairs to give your dining area that sleek rock star design. Add glossy white cups or plates and checkboard placemats and accessories to complete the look.

Apartment Art

Everyone has a favorite musical artist or rock star they look up to-but simply hanging a picture of your favorite artist on your apartment walls-is the easy way out. Think outside the box! Seek out rare or original art that depicts a moment in music history or, hang vintage instruments you’ve picked up from garage sales on your walls. Now you’re getting your act together!

Soak Up the Sun

Living like a rock star doesn’t have to be contained to the interior of your apartment. Why not take your act down to the pool. Heatherwood residents have access to outdoor pools and sundecks in most of our apartment complexes where you can strut-your-stuff for your fans. Grab that new pair of shades, your sunblock and exotic (non-alcoholic) drink and get your tan on. No Speedos please.

‘Hard (as a) Rock’ Fitness Centers

Part of living the rock star lifestyle is to make sure you’re body and mind are always in shape and ready for your next world tour! Ok, maybe it’s just your next trip to the mall, either way you need to stay healthy so why not take advantage of the Heatherwood’s state of the art fitness centers in our communities. There are plenty of machines so there’s no waiting. Plus, for that extra VIP treatment, you’ll have exclusive electronic key card access so you come and go as you please.


While it’s not quite a nightclub, our community centers and lounge areas provide the perfect getaway for your A-list celebrity family and friends. Strut on over to our community centers to shoot a game of billiards with a buddy, curl up with a good book on one of our comfortable chairs or set up a poker night with your pals. Extend your apartment life to other areas of your apartment complex. Chill out, you deserve it.

Balconies Rock

Private patios and balconies are filled with rock star stories and rumors. But the private patios, terraces and rooftop sundecks that Heatherwood residents are afforded are frequently filled with stories of relaxation, magnificent skyline views and late night BBQ’s (on our free grilling stations), with glorious sunsets. Talk about a rock star existence-it doesn’t get much better than this!

These are just a few of the many features and amenities that Heatherwood residents enjoy every day! Learn more, contact us here or call 631-775-2290 for Long Island leasing information or 888-982-9346 for NYC rentals.
