Whether you’re just starting your first job away from home, are an empty nester downsizing from a single-family home, or anything in between, you have to make a choice. Do you lease a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Brownsburg? How you choose what’s best for you depends on a few things.

What’s Your Price Range?

Many renters may want to have a second bedroom, but can you bear the extra cost when compared to a one-bedroom apartment in Brownsburg? The extra space might be useful, but if you are just going to use it for storage, you can get a detached garage instead.

The additional cost isn’t just about your monthly rent. You might have higher utility costs With additional space to keep up. 

What About All Your Stuff?

When you’re choosing between a one-bedroom apartment or something bigger, you should plan for all the stuff you own. If you’re coming with multiple quality furniture pieces, you may need the extra space. After all, a spare room may be the ideal space for Grandma’s china cabinet or those rare vinyl you’d like to display. When you only have one bedroom, your decision on what’s important is harder, and you’ll have to find which items to donate, sell, or throw away.

A Spare Bedroom Gives Overnight Guests Privacy

If you have friends or family stay the night, it's convenient for them to sleep in a bedroom rather than crashing on your pull-out couch. Out-of-town guests who stay overnight have a private space they can relax in within the extra bedroom. (Of course, a one-bedroom might persuade out-of-town visitors to get a room at a hotel). And if you need, you can set aside the spare room for a dog crate or cat palace.

Extra Space For Entertaining

Speaking of your friends: Are you known for entertaining? It is often harder to comfortably squeeze larger groups in a one-bedroom apartment in Brownsburg than in a two-bedroom unit. You may even be able to turn the spare bedroom into an enviable gaming room. 

Convert The Extra Bedroom Into A Home Office

When deciding on a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Brownsburg, the deciding factor may be having a space to work. Home offices are getting to be more and more common, and it’s a bonus when you don’t have to spread out your laptop and documents so they cover your living room coffee table. You can have a nice fold-away couch or futon for visitors and use the second bedroom for a workspace. When the work is over, simply shut the door and leave your stuff on your desk and you’re all set for the next day.
