We have luxury amenities, gorgeous well-kept grounds, and an attentive staff. We're even a pet-friendly property. It's clear why you would want to choose an apartment here, and the next important decision you have is whether to get a one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartment. Here are some questions to ask yourself as you decide:

Can You Afford It?

It's easy to get excited about making a big change in your life such as moving to a new apartment. But before you get swept up in that excitement, it's important to be honest with yourself about your budget. If the second bedroom is optional, will the extra expense present a hardship? If you're living paycheck to paycheck, it might be wiser to choose a one-bedroom apartment to leave some extra room in the budget.

How Would You Use the Extra Space?

If you have kids or a roommate, then your decision to get a second bedroom is obvious. However, you don't need a full-time occupant of that room to justify having it. If you work from home or need a home office, for example, you may also need the second bedroom. Other uses of a second bedroom include having a room dedicated for hobbies or for exercise equipment, but keep in mind that our property does have a fitness center.

What is Your Lifestyle?

A second bedroom will come in handy if you have regular out-of-town visitors or like to invite friends to stay over after a night on the town. On the flip side, however, a single bedroom will likely be enough if you’re rarely at home or if you spend a lot of time traveling. There's no point in paying for an extra bedroom that won't be used very often.

How Much Furniture Do You Have?

If you have an heirloom piece, a large desk with hutch that doesn't quite fit in your living room, or duplicate beds or dressers, you may have too much furniture to easily store in a one-bedroom apartment. However, paying for storage space can be costly and may seem unnecessary. Consider how much furniture you already have and whether you enjoy collecting new pieces. It could tip the balance in favor of getting a second bedroom.

When selecting a new apartment, make sure you choose the right number of bedrooms for your living situation so you can feel right at home for a long time to come.
