Shared Living Offers Limitless Life Experiences

September 13, 2023

Have you been considering shared living, but aren’t sure where to start? For people who work remotely, or travel the world as a self-proclaimed digital nomad, shared living has become a great alternative to apartment life. The idea is a simple one, and many great things come from simplicity. Here at LivingQ, we’ve compiled a basic list of some of the big benefits that come from this small idea. 

Foster Your Sense Of Community

Shared living gives you a sense of community. If you’ve traveled alone for business in the past, you know how tough it can be to form relationships. Co-working spaces and coffee shops can only take you so far. Sharing work is not the same as sharing a life. Shared living spaces let you build relationships with others who have the same situation as you do, with similar shared goals.  

Many shared housing spaces offer monthly events like movie nights, Taco Tuesday, or trivia night. This is a great way to get to know your housemates and lay a foundation of comradery. If there are no scheduled events at your location, you have the options to set up something similar on your own.

Enjoy Both Privacy And Collaboration

Even introverts can appreciate shared living. Most shared living spaces offer private, fully furnished rooms with private bathrooms. This allows you to have your own space to hang out, be yourself, and relax without having to turn on the charm.

But shared living gives you the best of both worlds with the ability to collaborate with others on a daily basis. You can bounce ideas off of others in the late evening hours, or first thing in the morning. Living together gives you the ability to talk to people when you and they are most creative, which might be outside of regular office hours. (We don’t suggest waking a housemate from slumber, though. Trust us.)

Save Money

Shared living can save you money. It might not be as much as you would save by couch surfing with friends, but at least you get your own space and a better quality of life. Many shared living spaces also include certain amenities along with the pricing, such as:

  • High-speed Wi-Fi

  • Basic household toiletries

  • Coffee

  • A regularly scheduled cleaning service 

Shared living also means that you won’t be stuck with extra rent if a roommate moves out suddenly. Your monthly payment won’t change if a housemate moves on. And, you won’t have to put out a call for someone new to take their spot.
