Should I Rent 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 just got married, you have to make a choice. Do you rent a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Fishers? How you choose what’s right for you depends on a few things.

What’s Your Price Point?

Some people may want a second bedroom, but can you afford the added cost when compared to a one-bedroom apartment in Fishers? The extra room might be useful, but if plan on using it for storage, consider a detached garage instead.

The cost isn’t just about your monthly rent. You might have higher utility costs when you have a spare room. 

How Will You Handle Your Stuff?

As you’re choosing between a one-bedroom apartment or something bigger, you should also consider everything coming with you. If you have a lot of large furniture pieces, you may need the extra space. After all, an extra room may be the perfect space for off-season clothes or those rare vinyl you want to show off. With just one bedroom, your decision on what’s important is more difficult, and you’ll need to find which items to give to a friend, sell, or throw in the trash.

A Spare Bedroom Makes It Easy To Have Company

If you have an occasional overnight guest, it’s easier for them to be in a bedroom as opposed to on your living room couch. Out-of-state family or friends who stay over have a private space they can stretch out within the guest bedroom. (Then again, a one-bedroom might persuade out-of-town visitors to stay at a hotel). If anything, you can use the spare bedroom for a dog crate or cat palace.

Extra Space For Entertaining

Getting back to your friends: Do you like to entertain? It is often harder to comfortably accommodate bigger groups in a one-bedroom apartment in Fishers than in a bigger unit. You may even be able to convert the spare bedroom into a fun game room. 

Turn The Extra Bedroom Into A Home Office

When deciding on a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Fishers, the tipping point may be having a space to work. Home offices are becoming very popular, and it’s helpful when you don’t have to spread out your laptop and accessories all over your dining table. You can have a nice fold-away couch or futon for guests and use the extra bedroom for a workspace. When the work is done, just close the door and leave your stuff on your desk and you’re ready for the next day.
