Deciding Between One- and Two-Bedroom Apartments in Rochester, Minnesota

September 06, 2016

1-2_Bedroom_Apart_Rochester.jpgFor couples and singles, a one-bedroom apartment provides the basic space you need to live comfortably. But that doesn't mean you won't enjoy or benefit from a two-bedroom even more. Springs at South Broadway offers both one and two-bedroom apartment homes, and we've found that residents sometimes struggle to choose between the two. Addressing the following questions will help you make the right decision for your situation:

How Tight is Your Budget?

If paying a bit more for a two-bedroom means you'll have to operate on a super-tight budget, it may not be worth it. You don't want to go without groceries so you can have a guest room or den! On the other hand, if you have a bit of extra discretionary income, it may be well spent on the extra space.

Do You Have A Lot of Guests From Out of Town?

When family comes from out of town, having an extra room will save them the expense of staying in a hotel. On the other hand, if you hardly ever have out-of-town visitors, the rare guest can bed down in the living room of a one-bedroom apartment.

Will Having a Home Office Benefit You?

If you ever work from home, having a second bedroom to use as a home office is paramount. You'll have an easier time keeping your work-related items organized, and you'll be more focused in a space dedicated to work.

Will a Second Bedroom Prevent You From Renting a Storage Unit?

If you have a lot of furniture and fear there won't be enough space for it in a one-bedroom, renting a two-bedroom may be cheaper and more convenient than having to rent a storage unit..

Would You Like Some "Alone Space?"

If you're living with a partner, having a private space can be beneficial to your relationship in the long run. No matter how much you love them, there will be times when you want to take a break from each other and do your own thing. The extra bedroom can allow for that, whether you set it up as a den, an office, or a guest room.

Do You Have Hobbies That Require Dedicated Space?

Do you like to sew, paint, scrapbook, or play an instrument? Sometimes, having a space set up for your hobby will encourage you to participate in it more often. If your hobby requires a lot of equipment, having that second bedroom may be crucial.

Do You Have a Pet?

Springs Apartments are pet-friendly, and if you live with a furry friend, a second bedroom may give him more space to roam.
