Studio VS. One Bedroom Apartments: The Pros and Cons of Each

apartmentsIf you’ve made the decision to look for apartments for rent in Burlington Vermont, you’ve already moved one step toward a peaceful and comfortable living situation. But there’s more to moving than simply deciding on a city; there’s also the inevitable choice of a one bedroom apartment, a two bedroom apartment, or even a studio apartment. While there are plenty of pros and cons that come with each, we’ve made it easy for you with our simple guide. Here are just a few pros and cons to keep in mind when deciding between studio and one bedroom apartments.


Studio Rentals

Studio apartments are ideal for those who may not need as much living space and are looking to lower their monthly rent payments. The smaller space can be regarded as either an advantage or disadvantage, depending on how you look at it: on one hand, you can’t fit as much furniture, but on the other hand, you don’t necessarily need to in order to achieve the ‘completely furnished’ look. When all is said and done, a studio apartment provides the private space any rental unit should without requiring the rental costs of a one or two bedroom rental.  



One Bedroom Rentals

For renters who have acquired some more belongings and aren’t necessarily ‘starting fresh,’ a one bedroom unit may be better suited. The main difference between a studio and a one bedroom apartment is that a one bedroom rental unit has an entirely separate bedroom. If you’re the type of renter who likes to entertain, has more belongings, or needs the extra space for other creative activities, a one bedroom apartment is probably ideal. Just keep in mind that the rent costs may be a bit higher, depending on the area.



According to Forbes, studios and one-bedroom apartments now comprise 54.4% of the apartment rental market due to millennial demand.
