Comparing the Benefits of a Luxury Two-Bedroom Apartment and Studio Apartments Near You

You’ve worked hard to achieve your place in society, and you’d do nothing to compromise that. That’s why you’ve already wisely decided that The Grand in downtown Kansas City is your next new home.

Perhaps what you haven’t decided is whether you should lease a 2 bedroom apartment with a roommate. You see the value in doing so, but you aren’t convinced just yet. 

Let us help you decide whether living with a roommate should be part of your life plan, or help you choose from two other luxury options in our premium high-rise apartment building.

Enjoy more square footage when you sign a lease with a roommate.

Stretch your monthly rent payment a little farther and choose a larger apartment when you have someone else contributing half the rent.

While you may not be overly concerned with how much the apartment costs, sharing a two-bedroom apartment can free up some of your monthly income to be put toward other things that are important to you, such as socializing and networking with Kansas City’s elite, ensuring your professional wardrobe is suitable for your latest promotion at the firm, or investing in a diverse portfolio of stocks to build personal wealth.

A larger apartment means you each have more space to yourselves and won’t feel like you’re invading each other’s privacy as you walk to and from the bathroom, cook a meal in a well-appointed gourmet kitchen, or simply stream the latest shows on your smart TV in your living room.

Roommates are built-in companions with opportunities to socialize.

If you’re the life of the party and thrive on human interaction, having a roommate you adore means the two of you can hit the Power & Light District together, enjoy fine dining downtown, or exercise together in our exclusive fitness center.

Having someone you enjoy living with means that there’s always someone there for you – and ready to enjoy all the finer things that life has to offer in downtown Kansas City.

You’ll need to communicate and compromise when you live with a roommate in a luxury apartment.

Having a roommate means that you share spaces – but you might not always agree on what to do with or in those spaces.

For example, if you’re obsessing over a Crate and Barrel loveseat, but your roommate doesn’t like the design style, then you’ll have to compromise on the purchase together. You can’t simply fill your apartment with furnishings that only belong to you and give your roommate absolutely no say in the matter.

You’ll want to have a frank discussion before agreeing to move into The Grand together, to make a plan for communal spaces, and set up ground rules for apartment guests, gatherings, household cleaning, and decor.

You have to share space and schedules.

While all the two-bedroom apartments at The Grand are equipped with multiple bathrooms so you won’t have any disagreements there, you may need to coordinate cooking and dining schedules, and plan out who has control of the smart TV remote when.

If you often seek solace and solitude, having a roommate may not be for you. If you feel discomfort hearing the television while you’re trying to work at your desk, sharing a two bedroom apartment might negatively affect your lifestyle.

Opt for a studio apartment or one-bedroom apartment at The Grand.

Our new apartments in Kansas City come in multiple sizes, so you’re bound to find one that suits your lifestyle here at The Grand.

If you’re choosing to live alone and take a pass on sharing with a roommate, consider our one-bedroom or studio apartments for rent. Thoughtfully-designed floor plans include plenty of closet space, your own well-appointed bathroom and kitchen, and dedicated sleeping and living areas with hardwood flooring and stainless steel appliances.

And regardless of the apartment floor plan you choose, you’ll access our list of luxury apartment amenities, including exclusive resident events, a daily coffee bar, bark park for your pets, sparkling swimming pool, dry-cleaning services, round-the-clock resident services, digital sports lounge, and more.
