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

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

What’s Your Price Range?

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

The cost isn’t just about your monthly rent. You might have higher utility costs due to the extra room.

What About All Your Stuff?

While you’re choosing between a one-bedroom apartment or something bigger, you should also consider all your things. If you own multiple large furniture pieces, you may want the extra space. If anything, an extra room may be the perfect spot for an oversized bookshelf or those collectibles you want to display. Without the second bedroom, your decision on what’s important is harder, and you’ll need to find which things to donate, 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 instead of crashing on your pull-out couch. Out-of-state family or friends who stay overnight have a cozy space they can relax in within the guest bedroom. (Then again, a one-bedroom might persuade out-of-town guests to stay over at a hotel). If anything, you can reserve the spare room for your dog.

Extra Space For Entertaining

Getting back to your friends: Are you known for entertaining? It is often more difficult to comfortably fit lots of people in a one-bedroom apartment in Carmel than in a larger space. You could also turn the spare bedroom into a lively game room.

Use The Spare Bedroom As A Home Office

When choosing between a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Carmel, the biggest factor may be finding a place to work. Home offices are getting to be very important, and it’s helpful when you don’t have to pile your computer and accessories so they cover your 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 finished, simply close the door and leave your work stuff out and you’re ready for the next day.
