When you look at rental apartments, you may notice there are a variety of floor plans to choose from. One of the floor plans you probably see pretty often is the studio floor plan. A lot of people will shy away from a studio because they think it’s just not for them. We’re here to tell you that studio apartments are pretty great (and maybe even better than a one-bedroom) if you are looking for a smaller unit.
Don’t believe us? Here are a few reasons why you should give a studio apartment a chance next time you’re in the market for a new apartment.
You can make the most of your space
When you live in a studio your sleeping space and your living space are one. There are no doors separating your bedroom from the rest of the home. This is an immediate turn-off to some people, but if you’re someone who spends more time in your living space than your sleeping space you might want to consider a studio apartment.
In a studio, your living space is larger because it also encompasses your sleeping space. In a traditional one-bedroom, your living space is often smaller. If you live alone or with a partner, chances are you spend the majority of your time in the living room so why not make the most of that space.
You need less furniture and your items serve more purpose
When furnishing a larger apartment you need more furniture, which leads to more expenses and more stuff to move. Living in a studio means you’re really only furnishing one room. This might mean you can invest in better pieces on the same budget.
Your items also serve a bigger purpose in a studio. Your expensive tv? It’s available to you from the couch or the bed. Your dresser? Now it’s a statement piece that pulls the room together. All your items are being used to the extent that they can be because you’re living in the entire space all the time.
It’s comfortable, cozy, and cost-effective
At the end of the day with some clever storage hacks, some tasteful decorating and some homey touches, your studio apartment will feel comfortable and cozy. Plus it might allow you to put a few more dollars in your savings account or live in an area you couldn’t otherwise afford. So don’t cross studio apartments off your list just yet because you just might enjoy living in one.
