Studio Apartments That Will Make You Forget You Even Want a Bedroom

 In Uncategorized

Usually touted as “cozy” or “quaint,” the studio apartment has long been the go-to place for those looking for minimalist living, or a lower-cost space in a higher-cost rental market (we’re looking at you, San Francisco). For its notorious lack of space, the studio has its benefits: it’s cheaper to decorate (less room, less stuff), you can see your TV from every room in your house, and believe it or not, can be fun to design. To prove our point, we scoured the Interwebz to find some of the best-looking, space-utilizing studios around. And in case you’re looking to become a one-room renter, we crunched the numbers and found the current median monthly rent price for studios across eight U.S. cities.
