Did you know they’re also called: bachelor apartments, efficencies, officetels, and studio flats? Contrary to popular belief they come equipped for every class of life. If you want a Washer/Dryer but can’t afford the one bedroom check if a studio is available. Often times you can get one with similar amenities for quite a bit less. If you can live with the whole, “My apartment is literally just a room.” thing you’re golden.

1Closets and Storage – Not every studio has closets, and if they don’t it’s likely you just have a small scrawl space to store your things. Thought you were going to use your childhood chest of drawers? Think again, you may need a wardrobe and coat hanger, my friend.

2Full Kitchen or Kitchenette? – In some studios you’ll have as little as a hot plate, mini fridge, a sink, and like a square foot of counter-top space. That’s known as a Kitchenette. Lots of people in the world get by with that arrangement, and cooking like that is perfectly possible. However, what you’re able to make is certainly limited what can be made in a pan or pot. As where in others you may have a full kitchen. Meaning, full-sized appliances and the ability to store more and bake things like Pizza.

3Sleeping Areas – So it’s just like rectangle with some kitchen stuff along one wall, right? Not necessarily. Often in times in older buildings they’ve been retro-fitted. In cities were space is extremely valuable the sleeping is usually lofted or in a little alcove to save space, so if see the words, “alcove” or “convertible” in a listing that’s what it means. While in other places there’s no special place for your bed.
