When you are searching for an apartment to rent, you not only must think about the location of the apartment but also if you should rent a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment. Whether you are a couple or a single person you might think renting a two-bedroom apartment isn't really worth the money. This could be a mistake and in fact, renting a two-bedroom apartment is often the better choice for many people.
Here are some reasons why renting a two-bedroom apartment is the better choice.
The Price Can Be Lower Overall
When you look at rental prices in many apartment buildings you will find that two-bedroom apartments often are a higher rent than a one-bedroom, but if you look at the overall picture, the price is typically lower per square feet than a one-bedroom.
Two-bedroom apartments are usually much larger than a one-bedroom, and with the added space which includes storage typically, it will cost you less in the long run. Many people who rent one-bedroom apartments also rent storage lockers for their extra furniture or items that they simply can't put into a one-bedroom apartment. A two-bedroom can offer you more space for your items so you don't have to rent a storage locker which will help lower your costs as well. If you want to, you can use the second bedroom as a sitting room, an office or a library for less cost than if you rented a one-bedroom plus den, plus that room will be larger.
Your Quality Of Life Can Be Better
Renting a two-bedroom apartment can actually improve your quality of life. When you have more space to live in and a separate room in which you can go to relax or work on crafts or other interests, it can relieve stress and make your space feel less cramped or crowded. One-bedroom apartments don't allow for much spreading out, and most people need a little time alone once in a while, so a two-bedroom can give you much-needed space for some alone time.
You could set up the second bedroom as an office if you work from home so you have a private space apart from your living space. This can give you privacy and quiet to work from instead of setting up your computer or desk in the living room. This can give you a work/life balance that you won't get otherwise.
Overall, a two bedroom apartment can help improve the quality of your home life.
