You will most likely be looking at "4.5" apartments, which means 3 bedrooms + living room/kitchen, or "5.5" which is 4 bedrooms + living room/kitchen. Larger ones are scarce. Spare bedroom is a great thing to have if you want to be taking guests, have a small home office or just store items you don't use daily.

Space is a big problem in Switzerland. Most people can afford any amount of items they wish to have , but not the space to keep them.
...and not only space I would add - you can rent a (sort of tiny) place to deposit for a little over 100 chf a month apparently, but still-, but the fact that most/many apartments have a common laundry!!!
Tbh that was the most annoying thing for me.
So OP, be careful about this aspect too.
