You’ve made the decision to get an apartment. You know the amenities that the complex you choose must have: 24-hour gym, dog park, pool, and easy access to shops, restaurants, and work or school. What you haven’t decided is if you want your new domicile to have one or two bedrooms.
Don’t ponder the situation alone. Here are three pointers for your consideration and ultimate decision making:
Me, Myself, and …
Are you going to live alone? You might immediately say, “Yes, it’s just me. So, a one bedroom is perfect.” While this may be true, you might want to consider your lifestyle.
If you enjoy having guests visit, especially in a city like Lafayette, that has festivals almost every weekend and live music nightly, an extra bedroom might be just the convenience you need for friends and family coming to town to experience the sights and sounds with you. Do you really want your overnight guests camping out on the sofa or do you want them to enjoy the privacy of their own room?
Are children a part of your life? If they are, even young children benefit from having their own space when visiting once or twice a month. Being able to keep to a bedtime schedule, especially for little ones, makes for a happier, healthier child. Can you or they truly get the rest you need when sharing sanctuary of your room instead of a room of their own? Probably not, so it might be best for everyone to have a room of their own.
Consideration 1: If you truly are going to live alone, have infrequent visitors, and never have the need to provide overnight accommodations for children, a one bedroom is the way to go. Otherwise, consider a two bedroom.
Hi, Ho, Hi, Ho, it’s off to work I go…
Do you work or take online classes at home? Some work from home can be done at the dinner table or at a desk in the corner of the bedroom. Study after study shows that work and sleep are best kept separate.
Your bedroom is where you go to rest, restore, and revitalize. Can you do that if you are also using the space to read instructional materials and work on a laptop or tablet? Probably not as successfully as if you have a two-bedroom apartment where you could set up the room as your home office.
A home office affords you space and the atmosphere to conduct business or study with greater concentration and attention. If you are splitting the space of a bedroom for too many activities, it can be distracting.
Consideration 2: A one bedroom is fine if you don’t work from home and are not pursuing higher education. Go with a two bedroom if your life includes a home office.
These are a few of my favorite things…
Most of us accumulate things. You may be a minimalist and pursue hobbies that require little by way of materials and/or equipment. You may be a shopper, sports enthusiast, collector, or hobbyist that needs extra room to house your accruements.
Consideration 3: Most of us indulge in possessions that make us happy. If you can keep a one bedroom tidy and clutter free with the belongings you own, a one bedroom apartment will probably do. If you know extra space would mean being able to display more and easily access your favorite things, consider a two bedroom.
