September 18, 2020

Whether you’re finding a place fresh out of college, are downsizing later in life, or just got married, you have to make a decision. Do you get a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Greenwood? How you decide what’s best for you depends on a few things.

What’s Your Price Range?

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 added room might be helpful, 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 additional space to heat and cool. 

How Will You Handle Your Stuff?

As you’re deciding between a one-bedroom apartment or something bigger, don’t forget about everything coming with you. If you have large large furniture pieces, you may want the extra space. If anything, a spare room may be just the place for an oversized bookshelf or your sports memorabilia you’d like to display. Without the second bedroom, your decision on what’s essential becomes harder, and you’ll have to choose which items to give away, sell, or throw in the trash.

A Spare Bedroom Makes It Easy To Have Company

If you have an occasional overnight guest, 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 relax in within the extra bedroom. (Then again, a one-bedroom might convince out-of-town relatives to stay over at a hotel). And if you need, you can use the spare room for your dog.

Larger Space For Entertaining

Speaking of your friends: Do you like to entertain? It may be more difficult to comfortably accommodate larger 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. 

Use The Extra Bedroom As A Home Office

When deciding on a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Greenwood, the deciding factor may be having a space 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 paper so they’re covering the living room coffee table. You can have a comfy fold-away couch or futon for visitors and use the extra bedroom for a workspace. When the work is finished, just close the door and leave your stuff on your desk and you’re all set for tomorrow.
