Different Types of Apartments

There are many types of apartments offered for peoples various needs. For budget-minded single people like me, a loft or single bedroom apartment may be better suited for me than a three-bedroom suite in the heart New York City. Here I will discuss the different possible apartment types that you can either buy or rent. If you know of another type of apartment dwelling, please share!

Studio Apartments These apartments, in my mind, are often associated with the artistic type. This is probably because I relate it to an art studio, which is an open room for the artist to create. But in reality, studio apartments are great for single people who don’t need a large space to live (they are generally 300-600 sq ft, although they can come larger), who are on a budget, or who like open spaces. There is typically one room that functions as the living room, kitchen, dining room, and bedroom while the bathroom is typically separated.

One Bedroom Apartments These apartments are typical for single occupants or couples. They usually contain one bedroom, a separate bath, a living room with a full kitchen usually separated by a wall, counter, or half walls. Sizes can vary greatly in this type of apartment depending on the location and price.

Two Bedroom, Three Bedroom, Four Bedroom Galore Two + bedrooms are great for smaller families and can be similar to the one bedroom layout in an apartment complex. In two bedroom apartments, there is usually a larger bedroom (similar to a master bedroom) with a smaller bedroom. When you get into apartments with more than two bedrooms, there are a vast array of set-ups and most of the time, the bedrooms are similar in size. Smaller apartments usually have one entrance while larger apartments may have two separate ones.

Some Special Perks Some apartments come with special perks in their apartments that home owners may take for granted. These include, but are no where limited to, a foyer, nook, laundry room, and separate dining area. What special features does your apartment have?
