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

September 18, 2020

Whether you’re just starting your first job away from home, are downsizing later in life, or at a space in between, you have to make a decision. Do you lease a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Sylvania? How you decide what’s right for you depends on these factors.

What Can You Afford?

Some people may want an additional bedroom, but can you take on the added cost compared to a one-bedroom apartment in Sylvania? The additional room might be nice, but if plan on using it for storage, consider a detached garage instead.

The additional cost isn’t just in rent. You also might pay more in utility bills due to the extra room. 

What About All Your Stuff?

When you’re choosing between a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment, you should also consider all the stuff you own. If you have large quality furniture pieces, you may want the extra space. After all, a spare room may be just the spot for off-season clothes or those rare vinyl you want to display. With just one bedroom, your decision on what’s essential becomes harder, and you’ll need to choose which things to give away, sell, or toss.

A Spare Bedroom Gives Overnight Guests Privacy

If you have visiting friends or family, it's convenient for them to sleep in a bedroom instead of crashing on your futon. Out-of-town guests who stay over can enjoy a private space they can unwind in within the extra bedroom. (Then again, a one-bedroom might convince out-of-town visitors to get a room at a hotel). If anything, you can use the second room for a dog crate or cat palace.

Larger Space For Entertaining

Getting back to your friends: Are you known for entertaining? It is often trickier to comfortably squeeze bigger groups in a one-bedroom apartment in Sylvania than in a bigger unit. You could also turn the spare bedroom into an enviable game room. 

Change The Extra Bedroom Into A Home Office

When deciding on a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Sylvania, the deciding factor may be finding a place to work. Home offices are getting to be very common, and it’s helpful when you don’t need 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 an office. When the project is finished, simply shut the door with your work things out and you’re all set for tomorrow.
