Common layouts for a studio apartment may include a single main room that functions as the bedroom and living room, with a separate section for a kitchen. Another option includes rooms that include the kitchen at one end of the main room or no full kitchen space at all in the unit. Most studio apartment layouts also include a single closet, often at the side or corner of the room, as well as an enclosed bathroom space.
A studio apartment varies from other types of apartments in that it is small in size and has one main room that serves multiple functions for the occupant. This differs from a larger apartment that has one or more dedicated rooms for sleeping or other activities. One common layout for a studio apartment is to have the majority of the space exist within a single square or rectangular room. These layouts often place the kitchen along the wall opposite to the entryway door, sometimes taking up the entire wall or only a portion of the area.
Another variant for studio apartment layouts places the kitchen in a separate or recessed space, sometimes resulting in a different shape of the overall unit. These layouts often feature smaller kitchens or kitchenettes, sometimes with less counter space or without certain kitchen appliances. The kitchen spaces may share a wall with a closet or bathroom in these layouts as well. Alternately, the room may not feature any dedicated kitchen space but might instead have an area for a hotplate or microwave.
