Deciding How Many Bedrooms You Need In Your Next Property

Estate Agents   |   October 5, 2023   |   Wright & Co Estate Agents


Whenever you’re purchasing a new property, one of the first things an estate agent will ask you is how many bedrooms you’re looking for. This can help them narrow down the vast market for you and recommend properties that are suitable for your individual needs. So, it’s always advantageous to know how many bedrooms you’d like to have in your next property. 

If you’re not sure how many bedrooms you realistically need, keep reading today. Below are some questions to ask yourself when deciding how many bedrooms would be useful in your next home. Answering these questions will help you ensure you’re not purchasing a property that is too small, or too big, for you at this moment in time. 

How many people are in your household?

Ideally, you should have one bedroom per person in your household. If you have young children, they might be able to share a bedroom, but this will often depend on the size of the room and whether there is space for two beds and both of their belongings. 

Will you be staying in this property for a long time?

Should you be planning to stay in your next property for the foreseeable future and your household is likely to grow, having spare bedrooms is advantageous. This can prevent you from having to move house again sooner than you anticipated. Remember to take into consideration that as your children get older, they’re likely going to need their own space and if they’re currently sharing a room, having another bedroom will be beneficial. 

Do you frequently have guests stay over?

If you have family or friends who live far away and need somewhere to stay when they visit you, you may want to purchase a property with a spare double bedroom. This can prevent your guests from having to sleep on a blowup bed or a sofa bed in your main living space which isn’t always convenient, especially if they’re staying for a long time. 

Are you working from home?

Lots of people work from home nowadays and if anyone in your household works remotely, a spare room can be useful. Having a quiet space to work from can increase productivity and a home office will prevent your living room or dining room from getting cluttered with work essentials. It’s worth noting that you may only need one spare bedroom if you work remotely and also have guests stay over as this room can be designed to be multi-purpose.

Would you like a room for your interests?

It isn’t uncommon for people to purchase a property with more bedrooms than they need so they can have a dedicated space for their hobbies. For example, home gyms, cinema rooms, dressing rooms, gaming rooms and craft rooms are all popular, and you should consider whether you’d like to have a room you can use for your interests. 

How much do you have to spend?

As you may expect, the more bedrooms a property has, the more expensive it will be to purchase and your budget will impact how many bedrooms you can have. Depending on how much of a deposit you have saved and the mortgage amount you’ve been offered, you may have to compromise on the number of bedrooms you have.
