3 Bedroom Apartments in Tempe

Three-bedroom apartments are perfectly sized for small families or roommates living together to share expenses. If you're searching for a two-bedroom apartment and find that most of the Tempe rental units don't offer the square footage that you need, you should consider moving up to three bedrooms. Use two of the bedrooms for sleeping, and then use the extra room to create a home office, a playroom for the children or a guest room. You can even use the spare room for painting, music or other creative arts.

Finding Three-Bedroom Apartments in Tempe

Regardless of how you want to use the rooms, you must start your apartment search by identifying which area of town best fits your lifestyle. Most of the three-bedroom apartments located close to the Arizona State University campus are designed with students in mind. They may allow you to walk or bike to campus while providing easy access to many restaurants and bars in the immediate area, but they may not suit your needs if you have younger children and want to live close to elementary, middle and high schools. The closer you go to campus, the less likely these apartments are to offer private garages or ample parking space.

If you have a car or don't need to stay close to ASU, you will find some of the more luxurious three-bedroom apartments in the southern or western ends of town. These apartments are more suitable for families with younger children, and many are located within walking distance of schools, parks and community recreational facilities.

For easy access to walking and biking trails, scenic parks and Tempe Town Lake, look for apartments in the northern region of the city. This is the downtown area, but it's also one of the best places to enjoy boating, swimming, bicycling and other outdoor activities.

Three-Bedroom Apartment Designs

You can't assume that all three-bedroom apartments are larger than all two-bedroom apartments. You have to find a variety of three-bedroom rentals in your preferred areas of Tempe and then compare the square footage and layout of each apartment. While the overall square footage matters, you should also consider how that square footage is used.

For instance, you may find one apartment that has less square footage than many others but which has a large open dining and living room area that is perfect for three students rooming together. Another apartment may feature large bedrooms with a small living room and no dining room at all. Here are some things to think about before you accept a three-bedroom apartment layout:

  • Do you need a large kitchen? If not, you can focus on apartments that give more square footage to the bedrooms or living room.
  • How much time will you or other members of your household spend in the living room? If it isn't much, you may prefer an apartment with larger bedrooms.
  • What is your primary use for each bedroom? This will help you decide whether small bedrooms are acceptable or not.
  • How much privacy do you need in the bedrooms? It's difficult to ensure that no one else in the apartment can hear what's happening in any given bedroom, but some apartments are designed with the bedrooms lined up while others are further apart. You may also want to ask about the insulation in the walls if privacy is a concern.

If you enjoy spending time outdoors, look for Tempe apartments with patios or balconies. Some apartment communities offer walking trails, playgrounds and swimming pools while others allow you to park in a covered area or a private garage. This is why it's important to shop around before settling on one apartment.
