Many homeowners are always confused between a 1 BHK apartment and a studio apartment and treat them as the same and use them interchangeably. However, there is a small difference between them.
A 1 BHK apartment features a single bedroom, hall area, bathroom, and kitchen, but each of these spaces acts as a separate unit demarcated by walls. While, a studio apartment is a ‘self-contained’ unit with a single large room that is a combination of a bedroom, dining room, living room, and kitchen.
Studio apartments are trendy worldwide. It is flexible and practical. If some homeowners don’t want a larger space but want a spacious look. It is important to remind that the price of a studio apartment will also differ based on its demand, location, developer brand, connectivity, and other factors.
A studio apartment is compact and highly affordable for those people who live alone or single working professionals. They also require low maintenance and generate lower electricity bills. However, despite the benefits, there are some disadvantages to studio apartments. Such as the space is limited, which negatively impacts your privacy when guests come over. Also, they need some additional storage space, which allows you to choose multifunctional and space-saving solutions, and they are not suitable for big families.
