Choosing which house to buy is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make. It’s a decision you think long and hard about, but while addressing some of the bigger issues that can arise; it’s easy to neglect the smaller ones. Here on the Zing blog we’ve been taking it room by room and reminding you of some smaller, yet equally important factors in choosing a home.
In this post we’re focusing on the bedrooms. Aside from the number, how much thought could possibly go into the bedrooms, right? You’d be surprised. From floor space to bathrooms to outlets, we’ve got you covered.
What to Keep in Mind When Looking at a Bedroom
Get the measurements! There may be enough bedrooms, but are they the right size? Can you fit all of your furniture and have enough space to walk around? It doesn’t matter how nice a bedroom is if it’s too small for your furniture. You should have a general idea of how much room you’ll need before you start exploring potential bedrooms.
Are the bedrooms on the same floor or separate? This may seem trivial, but if you need to be able to run to the next room quickly, or if you need some space between the master bedroom and the rest of the house, this is very important. Essentially, you need to decide which works best for you and your family, and keep that in mind when shopping for your home.
It’s important to check the wear and tear on the floors. No extra cash to spend on polishing up those floors? Looking for something move-in ready? The condition of those floors will affect that.
Need a lot of storage? That closet space is going to need to be up to par. It could be a great room with lots of space, but if you lose out on storage space, is it really worth it?
Looking for a bathroom adjoining the master bedroom? Just need one close by? Do you want some space between your bedroom and a bathroom? These are all things to consider when buying a new home.
How many electronics are you going to need to plug in? How close do you want them to your bed? Have a TV? Make sure there is an outlet near the spot you’d like to put your TV.
