Should You Stick With a Studio or Spring For a 1-Bedroom Apartment in Austin?

August 29, 2017

Studio or 1 Bedroom Apartment in AustinAt Springs at Round Rock and Springs at Lakeline Apartments, we offer both studio and 1-bedroom homes, both of which are popular with single residents and couples. But how do you decide between a studio apartment and a more spacious 1-bedroom layout? Ask yourself these questions; your answers should help you decide!

1. How Often Do You Entertain?

While you can certainly entertain in a studio apartment, you might feel a little awkward about having your guests sitting around in what's also your bedroom. A 1-bedroom apartment, where the bedroom is completely separated from the living space, may be a better choice since you can keep your private and entertaining spaces separate. On the other hand, if you rarely have friends over, you may not be bothered by having your living space and bedroom all in one.

2. How Much "Stuff" Do You Own?

If you already have a large collection of furniture and don't want to part with a bunch of things, then you'll have an easier time squeezing it all into a 1-bedroom. On the contrary, if you don't own a lot of furniture and don't wish to spend a lot of money buying more, it's less expensive and easier to outfit a studio.

3. How Tight is Your Budget?

If you're just starting out in your career or have a lot of other expenses, a studio can offer an affordable, comfortable living space. And at Springs Apartment communities, you gain access to great amenities — from our sparkling pool to our community clubhouse — no matter which size apartment you choose. Our studios are beautifully decorated with hardwood-style floors and they have their own washers and dryers, so you won't feel like you're depriving yourself.

Of course, if you have a bit more money to spare, you can spend it on the extra space and privacy offered by a 1-bedroom apartment. These units are just as stylish with walk-in closets, dishwashers, ceiling fans and faux wood blinds.

4. Do You Need More Space For a Pet?

Springs Apartments welcome pets including dogs, cats, fish, guinea pigs and more with some breed restrictions. If you have a smaller pet, the two of you will probably be just fine in a studio apartment. However, the extra space of a 1-bedroom can be nice if you have a larger dog or a very rambunctious cat. Some residents also like the option of being able to lock their pet in the bedroom while they do things like prepare dinner or entertain guests.

5. Do You Spend a Lot of Time at Home?

If you're a home-body, you may appreciate the extra space in a 1-bedroom, but if you're always out-and-about and really only use your apartment for sleeping, then a studio may be all you need!
