For example, a studio apartment will allow you to save money by paying less rent. This results in significant savings. However, this type of apartment is smaller in comparison with a one-bedroom apartment. It’s the type of place suitable for those that usually work a lot and don’t spend much time at home, those that don’t have many belongings and are simply looking for a place to go after work. A studio apartment is very easy to decorate and doesn’t require much furniture.

On the other hand, a one-bedroom apartment is suitable for those that need a little more space. It’s also ideal for renters that like to have friends over and guests spending the night. It’s easier to entertain your guests when you have a separate room for this purpose. The bed and other private elements are out of sight and those spending the night will be comfortable on the sofa in the other room. A one-bedroom apartment is also great for single couples that haven’t yet decided on a permanent residence.

Before you make a decision, try to analyze the advantages and disadvantages of each type of apartment. A one-bedroom apartment costs more but offers more space and benefits. However, these benefits don’t apply to everyone so certain renters might benefit more from a studio. If you live in a studio but feel that you could use more space, then an upgrade might be the solution. Also, if you’re living in a one-bedroom apartment and feel that you wouldn’t mind living in a studio, this can help you save significant money.
