Difference between studio apartment and one bedroom



Providing the comforts of a home clubbed with an array of extras, apartments have always been the popular choice among the other options. However, there are varied types of apartments available and individuals tend to get confused between them.

The most popular types of apartment are one bedroom apartment and studio apartment. However, the terms are often used interchangeably though there is a critical difference between the two. It is vital for one to familiarize oneself with the two terms so that the right apartment in accordance to the needs is selected.

A one bedroom apartment most commonly is referred to a single apartment. A basic one bedroom apartment has a bedroom, a kitchen, a living room and a bathroom. Some of the one bedroom apartments are also known to feature a fireplace, a balcony, a yard and two level storage spaces, etc. However, these features vary from apartment to apartment and are extra features.

On the other hand, a studio apartment refers to a single large room that features a kitchen and a bathroom. A studio apartment is basically a self contained unit and houses everything in the single room space except the bathroom. It is a typically a large room, with different areas of the room employed for varied uses. For instance, a corner of the room may be designed as a living area, a corner may be designed as a kitchen, and the space in between may be designed as the living room. In addition, the areas are generally with the use of partial walls or dividers.

The distinct difference between one bedroom apartment and a studio apartment is that the one bedroom apartment features separate spaces for the bedroom area, living room area and the kitchen area. However, a studio apartment has a single large multipurpose room which serves as the bedroom, the kitchen and as well as the living room. The only similarity between both of them is that they feature a separate space for the bathroom. Besides this, a one bedroom apartment is different from a studio apartment in every aspect.

As a one room apartment tends to be large in size than a studio apartment, it wears a higher price tag or rent rate in comparison to the studio apartment. In addition, the utility bills of a studio apartment are much lower than a one bedroom apartment.
