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

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 make the choice that’s right for you depends on a few things.

What Can You Afford?

You can find a use for an additional bedroom, but can you take on the added cost when compared to a one-bedroom apartment in Sylvania? The additional room might be nice, but if you are just going to use it for storage, consider a detached garage instead.

The additional cost isn’t just in rent. You also might have higher utility costs due to the extra room.

Where Will You Store Your Stuff?

When you’re choosing between a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment, don’t forget about all the stuff you own. If you have multiple furniture pieces, you may want the extra space. After all, a spare room may be just the place for off-season clothes or those rare vinyl you want to display. Without the second bedroom, your decision on what’s essential becomes harder, and you’ll need to choose which things to donate, 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 living room couch. 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 stay over at a hotel). If anything, you can use the second room for your pet.

Larger Space For Entertaining

Getting back to your friends: Are you known for entertaining? It is often more difficult to comfortably squeeze bigger groups in a one-bedroom apartment in Sylvania than in a bigger unit. You could also convert the second 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 tipping point may be finding a place to work. Home offices are becoming very popular, and it’s helpful when you don’t need to pile 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 over, simply shut the door with your work things out and you’re all set for the next day.
