After you have decided on what type of guarantor you want, then you have to think about the right apartment for you. You might want a place with a living room, dining room and kitchen, which is ideal if you plan on cooking at home a lot. Perhaps, you also want to have a separate room for storing your bags and shoes/accessories that you may use on a daily basis.
