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

Whether you’re just starting out in the world, are downsizing later in life, or just got married, you have to make a decision. Do you rent a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Greenwood? How you decide what’s best for you depends on a few things.

What Can You Afford?

Many renters may want to have an additional bedroom, but can you afford the extra cost when contrasted to a one-bedroom apartment in Greenwood? The extra room might be useful, but if plan on using it for storage, you can get a detached garage instead.

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

How Will You Handle Your Stuff?

As you’re deciding between a one-bedroom apartment or something bigger, you should also consider everything coming with you. If you have multiple large furniture pieces, you may want the extra space. If anything, a spare room may be just the spot for an oversized bookshelf or your sports memorabilia you’d like to display. Without the second bedroom, it’s harder to decide what’s important, and you’ll have to choose which things to give away, sell, or toss.

A Spare Bedroom Makes It Easy To Have Company

If you have visiting friends or family, it's convenient for them to sleep in a bedroom rather than on your pull-out couch. Out-of-town guests who stay over have a cozy space they can stretch out within the spare bedroom. (Then again, a one-bedroom might convince out-of-town relatives to get a room at a hotel). And if you need, you can set aside the second room for your dog.

Larger Space For Entertaining

Speaking of your friends: Do you like to entertain? It can be more difficult to comfortably fit bigger groups in a one-bedroom apartment in Greenwood than in a larger space. You can even change the other bedroom into an enviable gaming room.

Convert The Extra Bedroom Into A Home Office

When deciding on a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Greenwood, the deciding factor may be having a place to work. Home offices are getting more and more popular, and it’s nice when you don’t need to spread out your computer and documents so they’re covering the living room coffee table. You can set up a comfy fold-away couch or futon for visitors and use the second bedroom for a workspace. When the work is over, just close the door and leave your stuff on your desk and you’re all set for the next day.
