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

September 18, 2020

Whether you’re just starting out in the world, are downsizing later in life, or anything in between, you have to make a decision. Do you get a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Indianapolis? How you make the choice that’s right for you depends on many things.

What’s Your Price Range?

Many renters may want to have a second bedroom, but can you afford the extra cost when contrasted to a one-bedroom apartment in Indianapolis? 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 pay more in utility bills due to the spare room. 

Where Will You Store Your Stuff?

When you’re deciding between a one-bedroom apartment or something bigger, you should plan for all your things. If you have large quality furniture pieces, you may need the extra space. If anything, a spare room may be the perfect space for an oversized bookshelf or those rare vinyl you’d like to show off. When you only have one bedroom, it’s more difficult to decide what’s essential, and you’ll have to find which items to donate, sell, or throw in the trash.

A Spare Bedroom Makes It Easy To Have Company

If you have friends or family stay the night, it’s easier for them to be in a bedroom rather than on your futon. Out-of-state guests who stay overnight can enjoy a comfortable place they can unwind in within the extra bedroom. (Of course, a one-bedroom might persuade out-of-town visitors to stay over at a hotel). And if you need, you can reserve the second room for your dog.

Additional Space For Entertaining

Getting back to your friends: Are you known for entertaining? It can be trickier to comfortably squeeze lots of people in a one-bedroom apartment in Indianapolis than in a larger space. You could also turn the spare bedroom into an enviable game room. 

Use The Extra Bedroom As A Home Office

When deciding on a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Indianapolis, the deciding factor may be finding a place to work. Home offices are getting very important, and it’s helpful when you don’t need to pile your computer and documents so they cover your living room coffee table. You can get a comfy fold-away couch or futon for visitors and use the extra bedroom for a home office. When your work is over, simply close the door and leave your stuff out and you’re ready for the next day.
