When it's just you alone in an apartment, a studio is fine. When it's you and a significant other, a single bedroom apartment is ideal. What about getting a two-bedroom apartment? If the opportunity to get a two-bedroom apartment arises, then it's wise to jump on it if it's within your budget and your lease is about up.
Here are reasons to consider a two-bedroom apartment when you don't 'need' the space. You'll get more versatility and flexibility in your rental and can really get your money's worth, which you'll find out below.
You have an extra room for a home office
With many people working or studying from home, it makes sense to seek two-bedroom apartments to use as a home office or study room. Even if you aren't using a space full time for work or school, having the room available when you need it will make it much easier to get things done with space and privacy without disturbing the other party.
You have an extra room when someone is sick
If someone is ill and wants to avoid making the other person sick, then they can sleep in the extra room that two-bedroom apartments have. Another bonus to having a spare room you don't sleep in normally is that in the event someone has a change in work schedule or someone else wants to get up very early in the morning for a flight or appointment, they can sleep in the spare room and avoid disturbing their loved one.
You have an extra room for guests
When you and your significant other have people over and they stay the night, they can have their own room instead of having to sleep on the couch. When you don't have guests using the room, the spare room can be used as a storage space or can even be used as a game room or hobby room.
You have an extra room for kids
You never know when your family status will change between you and your significant other. If you have children or a family member comes to stay with you for an extended period of time, you'll have the space and room to accommodate them easily.
Two-bedroom apartments may have other benefits as well, such as more than one bathroom and more square footage overall. Look at several units before choosing the two bedroom apartment that meets what you're seeking best.
