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

Whether you’re just starting out in the world, are downsizing later in life, or anything in between, you have to make a decision. Do you get a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Bloomington? How you choose what’s best for you depends on a few things.

What Can You Afford?

You can find a use for a spare bedroom, but can you afford the added cost when compared to a one-bedroom apartment in Bloomington? The extra space might be nice, but if plan on using it for storage, consider a detached garage instead.

The cost isn’t just in rent. You also might pay more in utility bills With more space to keep up.

What About All Your Stuff?

As you’re deciding between a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment, you should also consider everything coming with you. If you’re coming with a lot of furniture pieces, you may need the extra space. If anything, an extra room may be the ideal space for Grandma’s china cabinet or those collectibles you’d like to display. With just one bedroom, it’s more difficult to decide what’s important, and you’ll have to find which items to donate, sell, or toss.

A Spare Bedroom Gives Overnight Guests Privacy

If you have visiting friends or family, it’s easier for them to be in a bedroom as opposed to on your pull-out couch. Out-of-town guests who stay over have a private place they can stretch out with the guest bedroom. (Of course, a one-bedroom might convince out-of-town relatives to get a room at a hotel). If anything, you can use the spare room for a dog crate or cat palace.

Extra Space For Entertaining

Speaking about your friends: Are you known for entertaining? It is often trickier to comfortably fit larger groups in a one-bedroom apartment in Bloomington than in a bigger unit. You may even be able to turn the spare bedroom into an enviable game room.

Convert The Extra Bedroom Into A Home Office

When deciding on a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Bloomington, the biggest factor may be finding a place to work. Home offices are getting to be more and more popular, and it’s a bonus when you don’t have to have your computer and documents all over the dining table. You can set up a comfy futon or couch for guests and use the second bedroom for a home office. When the workday is over, just shut the door with your stuff on your desk and you’re ready for the next workday.
