3 Sizing Tips to Consider When Selecting Apartments, Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky

When you start searching for an apartment, you’ll have the option to narrow your search based on square footage. Knowing how much space you need can be tough unless you know what to consider. Use the tips below when looking at apartments, so you know you’ve found a place that will suit your needs.

Sizing Guide for Apartments

1. Consider Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Begin by considering how many bedrooms and bathrooms you need. A studio is recommended for people who live alone and don’t plan on entertaining often. Those who live alone or with a significant other often only need one bedroom. However, if you work from home and want an office or really want a guest bedroom, then you may want two bedrooms and one bathroom.

If you plan to have a roommate who will want their own room, two-bedroom apartments with two bathrooms tend to be best. The more bedrooms, the higher your square footage will usually be; this can vary slightly, however, depending on the size of the rooms. A smaller one-bedroom apartment may feel larger than a two-bedroom with more square footage if its rooms are more spacious.

2. Measure Furniture

apartmentsStart by measuring all the furniture you plan to bring into your new place. Get the dimensions of the individual rooms in the apartment; the bedroom and living room are the most important. Use an online tool to plan out where you will place your furniture and determine whether everything will fit. Don’t forget to consider features such as windows and fireplaces, which may impact where you want to put your furniture.

3. Analyze Prices

Generally speaking, larger apartments cost more. However, some places to rent are a much better deal than others. Do some research in your area to see what the average prices are like. Consider factors such as amenities, location, utilities, and pet-friendliness, as these all influence price.


In addition to apartment size, the apartment complex is a factor you should look at closely.
