Should I Get A One-Bedroom Or Two-Bedroom Apartment In Fishers?

September 18, 2020

Whether you’re just starting out in the world, are an empty nester downsizing from a single-family home, or anything in between, you have to make a decision. Do you lease a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Fishers? How you make the choice that’s right for you depends on many things.

What’s Your Price Point?

You may want a spare bedroom, but can you afford the added rent when contrasted to a one-bedroom apartment in Fishers? The added space might be nice, but if want to use it for storage, you can get a detached garage instead.

The extra cost isn’t just about your monthly rent. You might have increased utility bills due to the extra room. 

How Will You Handle Your Stuff?

As you’re choosing between a one-bedroom apartment or something bigger, you should plan for all the stuff you own. If you own large quality furniture pieces, you may need the extra space. After all, a spare room may be the perfect space for an oversized bookshelf or those rare vinyl you’d like to display. Without the second bedroom, your decision on what’s kept is more difficult, and you’ll have to choose which pieces to give to a friend, sell, or throw away.

A Spare Bedroom Gives Overnight Guests Privacy

If you have visiting friends or family, they may be more comfortable sleeping in a bedroom instead of on your pull-out couch. Out-of-town family or friends who stay over can enjoy a cozy place they can relax in with the guest bedroom. (Of course, a one-bedroom might convince out-of-town visitors to stay over at a hotel). If anything, you can set aside the extra room for your dog.

Extra Space For Entertaining

Getting back to your friends: Are you known for entertaining? It may be trickier to comfortably squeeze lots of people in a one-bedroom apartment in Fishers than in a two-bedroom unit. You can even turn the other bedroom into an enviable gaming room. 

Change The Extra Bedroom Into A Home Office

When deciding on a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Fishers, the biggest factor may be finding a place to work. Home offices are becoming more and more important, and it’s nice when you don’t have to spread out your computer and accessories so they cover your coffee table. You can have a small futon or couch for visitors and use the extra bedroom for an office. When your workday is done, simply close the door with your work stuff on your desk and you’re all set for the next day.
