Choosing a new apartment is an exciting experience, but it can also bring up some challenging questions. You’ll need to choose the best neighborhood, pick a community with the right amenities, and find a unit that’s properly sized for your needs. If you’re stuck on deciding how many bedrooms you’ll need for your new home, use these questions to guide you toward the best choice for your needs.
1. How Do You Entertain?
If you like to have people over to your apartment, your entertaining style might determine whether you’re better suited to a studio apartment or one-bedroom. Our one-bedroom units have separate dining areas where you can host dinner parties easily.
Though our studio apartments are smaller, you may find that you don’t need the extra space if your entertaining style leans toward casual movie nights at home. You can also use our community amenities as an alternative to entertaining in your apartment. Our Springs at Fremaux Town Center and Springs at River Chase communities have sparkling swimming pools, community clubhouses and 24-hour fitness centers.
2. Do You Work or Study at Home?
Are you in college at one of our nearby schools like Delta College or Delgado Community College? Perhaps you’re a freelancer working from home. If you use your apartment for more than just leisure, you may want a larger unit. A one-bedroom apartment will give you extra space to set aside a nook for work or study.
If you prefer the money-saving perks of a smaller studio apartment, check out local libraries, coffee shops, and coworking spaces for your professional needs. These locations can give you a separate area for taking care of business so your home can remain a laid-back space for unwinding.
3. How Much Storage Do You Need?
Take a good look at your belongings. If you’re moving into a home for the first time, take stock of what will be coming with you. If you’re moving out of another apartment, check your square footage and see how much space it currently takes to keep you and your belongings comfortable. If you have a spacious dining room table and a lot of living room furniture, a one-bedroom is probably better. If your storage is mostly clothing, our studio apartments have spacious closets that can accommodate your needs.
