Should I Lease A One-Bedroom Or Two-Bedroom Apartment In Westfield?

September 18, 2020

Whether you’re just starting your first job away from home, are downsizing later in life, or at a space in between, you have to make a choice. Do you get a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom apartment in Westfield? How you make the choice that’s best for you depends on many things.

What’s Your Price Range?

Some people may want to have a spare bedroom, but can you bear the extra cost when contrasted to a one-bedroom apartment in Westfield? The additional room might be helpful, but if you are just going to use it for storage, consider a detached garage instead.

The extra cost isn’t just about your monthly rent. You may pay more in utility bills due to the extra room. 

How Will You Handle Your Stuff?

As you’re deciding between a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment, you should also consider all the stuff you own. If you have multiple quality furniture pieces, you may need the extra space. If anything, a separate room may be the perfect spot for off-season clothes or those collectibles you’d like to show off. When you only have one bedroom, your decision on what’s important is more difficult, 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 visiting friends or family, it's convenient for them to sleep in a bedroom instead of on your living room couch. Out-of-town guests who stay the night can enjoy a comfortable space they can stretch out with the extra bedroom. (Then again, a one-bedroom might persuade out-of-town relatives to stay over at a hotel). If anything, you can reserve the spare bedroom for a dog crate or cat palace.

Larger Space For Entertaining

Speaking about your friends: Are you known for entertaining? It can be harder to comfortably fit larger groups in a one-bedroom apartment in Westfield than in a larger space. You can even change the other bedroom into a lively gaming room. 

Convert The Extra Bedroom Into A Home Office

When deciding on a one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in Westfield, the deciding factor may be finding a space to work. Home offices are getting very important, and it’s nice when you don’t have to have your laptop and accessories all over your dining table. You can get a comfy fold-away couch or futon for guests and use the spare bedroom for an office. When your workday is finished, just shut the door with your work stuff out and you’re prepared for tomorrow.
