The amount of bedrooms and bathrooms in the house
How many bedrooms you will need will depend on what it is you are trying to use the space for. If you are using it as the retreat you go to a couple of times per year, you may not necessarily be all too concerned with whether you choose to have 3 bedrooms or 4 bedrooms, but a decision like that can be what ends up really bothering you if you have to stay there every single day instead. The same goes when you are having to choose the amount of bathrooms.
