The pros and cons of upper and lower floors.

Once you have made the decision to buy your own apartment and have chosen your real estate promoter, the next step is to choose the specifics: the shape, the number of rooms, the surface, and the design of your apartment. Would you prefer to give more space for the kitchen or the living room? Will you choose a luxurious laminate floor that matches the light? Or would you prefer a marble floor that goes with all kinds of furniture? But first and foremost, you need to choose the appropriate floor to live on that suits your family’s current and future needs.

As it is known, a residential building consists of several floors, sometimes exceeding 20 floors, divided between upper and lower floors. This leaves the clients in a state of confusion as to which floor will suit the nature of their needs.

Let’s start with lower floors, which are characterized by their proximity to the main entrance, which means:

  • Avoiding the permanent use of elevators and stairs.
  • Avoiding problems when changing the apartment’s furniture
  • Easy transportation of daily household purchases.
  • Ease of transportation for people with special needs and seniors.

All of these positive qualities are contrasted with negative ones that can make your choice of ground floors seem very daunting such as:

  • Excessive noise due to the frequent use of gates and stairs
  • The large presence of strangers and visitors in front of your residence door, which means that a special security system must be created to avoid all incidents such as theft and entry of strangers
  • The lower floors are affected by a lot of dust and dirt emitted from outside
  • Lack of sunlight, which indicates an increase in electricity consumption

Now let’s move on to the upper floors to discover their advantages:

  • The view, upper floor owners are constantly enjoying the charming night and bright views in the morning.
  • Less noise, there is no car noise on the upper floors.
  • More privacy and quiet.

When it comes to the disadvantages, we find the following:

  • Difficulty in moving and shifting furniture
  • Difficulty in using the stairs if the elevator breaks down or if the power goes out, especially for elderly and people with special needs
  • Heights phobia is an issue for people who do not want to use the upper floors

In summary, there are many differences between upper and lower floors. As we have seen, there is no ideal floor. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, the buyer must choose based on their daily and family needs and what really suits them best.
