Whether you’re finding a place fresh out of college, are downsizing later in life, or at a space in between, you have to make a choice. Do you lease a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Indianapolis? How you decide what’s right for you depends on a few things.

What’s Your Price Range?

You may want to have a spare bedroom, but can you afford the extra cost when contrasted to a one-bedroom apartment in Indianapolis? The added room might be useful, but if you are just going to use it for storage, you might want a detached garage instead.

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

What About All Your Stuff?

While you’re choosing between a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment, you should plan for all your things. If you own multiple large furniture pieces, you may need the extra space. After all, a spare room may be just the space for Grandma’s china cabinet or those collectibles you’re looking to show off. With just one bedroom, it’s harder to decide what’s important, and you’ll have to find which items to give away, sell, or toss.

A Spare Bedroom May Mean Visitors

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 place they can relax in with the extra bedroom. (Of course, a one-bedroom might persuade out-of-town relatives to get a room at a hotel). And if you need, you can use the spare room for a dog crate or cat palace.

Extra Space For Entertaining

Getting back to your friends: Are you known for entertaining? It can be harder to comfortably fit larger groups in a one-bedroom apartment in Indianapolis than in a larger space. You may even be able to convert the second bedroom into a fun game room. 

Use The Second Bedroom As A Home Office

When choosing between a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Indianapolis, the biggest factor may be having an area to work. Home offices are getting to be very common, and it’s nice when you don’t have to pile your laptop and paper all over the living room coffee table. You can have a nice futon or couch for visitors and use the spare bedroom for an office. When your work is over, just shut the door and leave your work things on your desk and you’re prepared for tomorrow.
