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

Whether you’re just starting out in the world, are an empty nester downsizing from a single-family home, or just got married, you have to make a choice. Do you rent a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Bloomington? How you decide what’s best for you depends on many things.

What Can You Afford?

You can find a use for an additional bedroom, but can you bear the extra rent when contrasted to a one-bedroom apartment in Bloomington? The added room might be helpful, but if plan on using it for storage, consider a detached garage instead.

The extra cost isn’t just in rent. You also may pay more in utility bills when you have an extra room.

Where Will You Store Your Stuff?

As you’re deciding between a one-bedroom apartment or something bigger, don’t forget about all your things. If you’re coming with a lot of quality furniture pieces, you may want the extra space. After all, an extra room may be the perfect place for Grandma’s china cabinet or your sports memorabilia you’re looking to show off. Without the second bedroom, your decision on what’s essential becomes harder, and you’ll need to choose which things to donate, sell, or throw away.

A Spare Bedroom May Mean Visitors

If you have friends or family stay the night, it’s easier for them to be in a bedroom rather than crashing on your futon. Out-of-state family or friends who stay over can enjoy a cozy space they can unwind in within the guest bedroom. (Of course, a one-bedroom might persuade out-of-town guests to stay at a hotel). And if you need, you can reserve the spare bedroom for a dog crate or cat palace.

Additional Space For Entertaining

Speaking of your friends: Do you like to entertain? It may be harder to comfortably accommodate larger groups in a one-bedroom apartment in Bloomington than in a two-bedroom unit. You may even be able to convert the second bedroom into a fun 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 tipping point may be finding a place to work. Home offices are becoming more and more important, and it’s helpful when you don’t have to spread out your laptop and documents so they’re covering your living room coffee table. You can have a nice futon or couch for visitors and use the extra bedroom for a home office. When the project is finished, just close the door with your stuff on your desk and you’re ready for the next day.
