    If indoors, then the 25 is better for you. You may well find the 45 a bit too long unless you have large rooms

    25mm is better suited for general purpose, while the 45mm is more of a portrait lens. The 25mm can focus closer/has higher magnification than the 45mm as well.

    Generally, the 25 will help you to capture the scene, the 45 will allow you to isolate a subject. If you have a macro, then probably go with the 25 for versatility. If not, give the 45 some consideration. It is a bit tighter, but it might be a fun lens, especially if you want to try something like portraits or still life compositions.

    Good luck,
