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

Whether you’re just starting your first job away from home, are downsizing later in life, or at a space in between, you have a big decision. Do you lease a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Indianapolis? How you decide what’s best for you depends on a few things.

What’s Your Price Range?

Many renters can find a use for an additional bedroom, but can you take on the extra cost when compared to a one-bedroom apartment in Indianapolis? The added room might be helpful, but if want to use it for storage, consider a detached garage instead.

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

How Will You Handle Your Stuff?

When 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 need the extra space. After all, a separate room may be just the place for Grandma’s china cabinet or those rare vinyl you want to show off. 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 May Mean Visitors

If you have friends or family stay the night, it's convenient for them to sleep in a bedroom instead of crashing on your pull-out couch. Out-of-town family or friends who stay the night have a cozy space they can relax in within the guest bedroom. (Of course, a one-bedroom might persuade out-of-town guests to get a room at a hotel). And if you need, you can use the second room for a dog crate or cat palace.

Additional Space For Entertaining

Speaking about your friends: Do you like to entertain? It is often more difficult to comfortably fit larger groups in a one-bedroom apartment in Indianapolis than in a bigger unit. You could also turn the spare bedroom into an enviable game room.

Use The Second Bedroom As A Home Office

When choosing between a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Indianapolis, the biggest factor may be having a place to work. Home offices are getting to be more and more popular, and it’s nice when you don’t need to pile your laptop and paper all over your dining table. You can set up a small fold-away couch or futon for visitors and use the extra bedroom for a home office. When your project is finished, simply close the door and leave your stuff on your desk and you’re all set for tomorrow.
