Moving into your first apartment is a heady experience. After looking around, you found a one bedroom unit that’s in a nice area, convenient to work, and fits into your budget easily. Now that you’ve signed the lease and moved in, you get to start enjoying all the benefits that come with your new living space. Here are five of the things you will enjoy about life in that one bedroom apartment.
You Have Enough Room
Unlike your dorm room at college, there’s enough room for everything in your one bedroom apartment for rent in Redwood City, California. Nothing has to be tucked under the bed or jammed into the closet. Between the square footage, the number of closets, and the way the kitchen is laid out, organizing your things will be easy. That’s a good thing since you won’t spend half of your days trying to remember where you had to tuck something away so it was out of sight.
But Not Too Much Room
While you like having enough room for your needs, it’s nice to know that your living space is small enough to keep tidy without a lot of trouble. After working all week, the last thing you want to do is spend the better part of Saturday getting the place back into shape. With one bedroom Redwood City apartment rentals it’s easy to do a little cleaning during the week and then finish up in a couple of hours on Saturday. After that, you have the rest of the weekend to do anything you like.
Easy to Hide the Mess
Someone just called and happens to be in the neighborhood. Since you don’t want to be rude, you invite them to drop by. That’s fine, but the place is a mess and they will be here in ten minutes.
Since you do have a one bedroom unit, it’s possible to gather all the clutter and hide it in the bedroom for now. Once you transport everything to the bedroom, close the door. The areas that your guest will see are tidy and no one has to know what chaos is lurking on the other side of the bedroom door.
Reducing Worries About Overnight Guests
You won’t mind a friend occasionally making use of your sofa, but the idea of guests who stick around for extended periods of time holds no appeal. When you live in a one bedroom unit, there’s a built-in reason to not entertain several guests for a weekend or longer. Since you happen to be someone who likes a life balance of time spent with others and some time for yourself, your apartment becomes one of the more important resources for preventing too much of a good thing.
Kind to Your Budget
In most cases, a one bedroom unit will be less expensive than larger apartments. That means you will have an easier time making the monthly rent payment on time. It also means more of your net income can be used to do the things you want to do. What’s the point of paying for a large apartment when there is no money left to go out and do anything?
While you may need something larger, later on, a one bedroom unit will serve you well as a single person. Settle in, make space your own, and know you always have somewhere to get away from whatever life is currently dishing out.
