Question: Allison Mitchell from Lynbrook, New York is apartment hunting and has narrowed her search down to two places. She says one place is brand new, trendy and modern with lots of natural light. The second place is a few years old with a huge kitchen and some rooms are carpeted. Which one should she choose?

Answer: Berkus says to ask a few questions before deciding. What’s your personal style? What does your furniture look like and will it blend in well with your new space? What stage of life are you in? Mitchell says her personal and furniture style is more modern, and jokes that she’s currently going through a midlife crisis. Berkus’ recommendation is to go with the brand new modern apartment. “Fresh start, new beginning,” says Berkus.
