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

September 18, 2020

Whether you’re just starting your first job away from home, are downsizing later in life, or at a space in between, you have to make a choice. Do you get a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Fishers? How you choose what’s best for you depends on many things.

What’s Your Price Range?

Many renters may want to have an additional bedroom, but can you take on the extra cost compared to a one-bedroom apartment in Fishers? The additional room might be helpful, but if you are just going to use it for storage, you might want a detached garage instead.

The extra cost isn’t all about monthly rent, either, as you might pay more in utility bills when you have a spare room. 

Where Will You Store Your Stuff?

When you’re choosing between a one-bedroom apartment or something bigger, don’t forget about all the stuff you own. If you own a lot of furniture pieces, the extra space may sound great. If anything, an extra room may be the ideal space for an oversized bookshelf or those collectibles you want to display. Without the second bedroom, your decision on what’s essential is harder, and you’ll have to find which items to donate, sell, or toss.

A Spare Bedroom Makes It Easy To Have Company

If you have friends or family stay the night, it’s easier for them to be in a bedroom instead of on your living room couch. Out-of-state family or friends who stay over have a cozy space they can unwind in with the spare bedroom. (Of course, a one-bedroom might persuade out-of-town visitors to stay at a hotel). If anything, you can set aside the spare bedroom for your pet.

Extra Space For Entertaining

Speaking of your friends: Are you known for entertaining? It may be trickier to comfortably accommodate lots of people in a one-bedroom apartment in Fishers than in a bigger unit. You can even turn the spare bedroom into an enviable game room. 

Turn The Extra Bedroom Into A Home Office

When choosing between a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Fishers, the tipping point may be having an area to work. Home offices are getting more and more common, and it’s helpful when you don’t need to spread out your computer and paper all over the coffee table. You can have a comfy fold-away couch or futon for guests and use the spare bedroom for a home office. When your work is over, just shut the door and leave your work things out and you’re all set for tomorrow.
