Should I Rent A One-Bedroom Or Two-Bedroom Apartment In Broad Ripple?

Whether you’re just starting your first job away from home, are downsizing later in life, or anything in between, you have a big decision. Do you rent a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Broad Ripple? How you choose what’s right for you depends on these factors.

What Can You Afford?

Some people may want a spare bedroom, but can you afford the added cost when contrasted to a one-bedroom apartment in Broad Ripple? The additional room might be useful, but if want to use it for storage, you can get a detached garage instead.

The extra cost isn’t all about monthly rent, either, as you may have increased utility bills due to the spare room.

Where Will You Store Your Stuff?

As you’re deciding between a one-bedroom apartment or something bigger, don’t forget about all the stuff you own. If you own multiple furniture pieces, you may want the extra space. If anything, an extra room may be the perfect spot for Grandma’s china cabinet or those rare vinyl you want to display. When you only have one bedroom, your decision on what’s essential is harder, and you’ll need to choose which things to give away, sell, or throw in the trash.

A Spare Bedroom Gives Overnight Guests Privacy

If you have an occasional overnight guest, they may be more comfortable sleeping in a bedroom instead of on your futon. Out-of-state family or friends who stay over have a comfortable place they can stretch out within the guest bedroom. (Of course, a one-bedroom might convince out-of-town visitors to get a room at a hotel). If anything, you can use the extra room for a dog crate or cat palace.

Extra Space For Entertaining

Getting back to your friends: Are you known for entertaining? It can be harder to comfortably squeeze bigger groups in a one-bedroom apartment in Broad Ripple than in a larger space. You may even be able to change the second bedroom into a fun gaming room.

Convert The Extra Bedroom Into A Home Office

When deciding on a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Broad Ripple, the tipping point may be finding a place to work. Home offices are getting to be more and more important, and it’s nice when you don’t need to spread out your laptop and documents so they cover the living room coffee table. You can get a small fold-away couch or futon for visitors and use the spare bedroom for a workspace. When the workday is over, simply close the door and leave your work things on your desk and you’re all set for the next day.
