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

Whether you’re just starting your first job away from home, are an empty nester downsizing from a single-family home, or anything in between, you have a big decision. Do you get a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Carmel? How you choose what’s right for you depends on many things.

What Can You Afford?

Many renters may want an additional bedroom, but can you bear the added cost when contrasted to a one-bedroom apartment in Carmel? The extra room might be useful, but if want to use it for storage, you might want a detached garage instead.

The extra cost isn’t just in rent. You also might have increased utility bills due to the extra room.

Where Will You Store Your Stuff?

When you’re deciding between a one-bedroom apartment or something bigger, you should plan for everything coming with you. If you own large large furniture pieces, the extra space may sound great. If anything, a spare room may be the ideal space for off-season clothes or those rare vinyl you’d like to show off. When you only have one bedroom, it’s harder to decide what’s important, and you’ll have to find which pieces to give away, 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 on your pull-out couch. Out-of-state guests who stay overnight have a cozy space they can unwind in with the spare bedroom. (Then again, a one-bedroom might convince out-of-town visitors to stay over at a hotel). If anything, you can use the spare room for your pet.

Additional Space For Entertaining

Getting back to your friends: Are you known for entertaining? It is often harder to comfortably fit lots of people in a one-bedroom apartment in Carmel than in a bigger unit. You can even turn the other bedroom into an enviable gaming room.

Change The Extra Bedroom Into A Home Office

When deciding on a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Carmel, the tipping point may be finding a place to work. Home offices are getting to be very popular, and it’s helpful when you don’t have to spread out your computer and accessories so they’re covering your living room coffee table. You can get a small futon or couch for visitors and use the spare bedroom for a workspace. When the work is finished, just shut the door with your work things out and you’re ready for the next workday.
