We always say if “it feels like home from the first visit” it’s probably the one but we know sometimes it’s just not that easy. If you’re weighing the options for a two bedroom apartment upgrade, we know you are already considering expenses. But are you also factoring in happiness? Are you deciding for what better serves the simple pleasures in your life? Happiness is just as valuable as money. If you can relate to any of these scenarios, it’s likely time to move on to a two bedroom apartment home.
Your Family is Growing
When kids are in the picture, life happens quickly. Before you know it, you and your significant other are expecting and it’s time to start rethinking your living arrangements for the little one. Or perhaps life happens at the other end of the spectrum and you need to plan on moving in a relative. If your family grows, your footprint grows with it and a two bedroom could be a comfortable next step to accommodate everyone.
You’re Working from Home
Working from home is the new norm. If working from home will be a long-term or permanent situation for you, a two bedroom apartment offers some nice perks! A spare bedroom turned home office offers you a dedicated space for focus. It’s the ideal environment for improving your routines, organization, and therefore productivity. Plus, a separate work space establishes a firmer line (or wall) between your work and home life. Simply shut your door to shut it off for the day.
You’re Low on Storage
If your closets are bursting at the seams, that’s a pretty good sign you need to upgrade for more space. A larger apartment home generally comes with more storage but a full second bedroom offers a myriad of ways to store things, even if it’s used as a traditional guest room. Some good furniture and storage containers in the extra closet or under then bed can go a long way for tidiness. And if you consider yourself to be “extra”, there’s nothing more fitting than turning your bedroom into an oversized, walk-in closet. Yep, move into a two bedroom and you could have THAT closet.
Your “Me Time” is Missing
Everyone needs some alone time, right? It’s definitely time to move on if your current home is not conducive to some occasional personal time. If you don’t need the room for a growing family or regular guests, a second bedroom can double as anything you want. It’s a great host for hobbies and home workouts. Invest in some craft shelving for your indoor “she shed” or bring in a lazy boy and big screen for the ultimate “man cave”.
You’re Needing to Cut Costs
If you’re treading through some hard times or just looking to save more money, a two bedroom roommate living situation provides some helpful solutions. Inviting a friend or family member to share a lease with you allows you both to cut costs, gives you some company, and likely affords you both a nicer apartment home. By splitting expenses, you and your roommate can enjoy more of the simple pleasures of apartment living, like extra money in your pockets and better amenities to enjoy.
