What is a studio apartment?
‘Studio’ is a term that refers to a space for filming and taking pictures with specialized equipment. However, in the field of real estate, the term ‘studio’ has a completely different meaning. It refers to an apartment without partitions between the sleeping area and the living area, so the size of studio apartments is quite small. However, this type of apartment still features full basic functions from living room, kitchen, sleeping space, to bathroom.
Studio apartment is also known as Bachelor apartment or Efficiency apartment. The area sizes vary considerably by country, but here in Vietnam it ranges from 25 to 65m2.
Is it a great choice for every tenant? And things you need to know?
Whether or not a studio apartment is a great choice for every tenant depends on various factors such as your personal preferences, lifestyle, and budget. Here are some things to consider when deciding if this type of apartment is a great choice for you!
One of the key reasons to choose a studio apartment is affordability. If you are on a tight budget, a studio apartment might be a perfect choice for you. However, there are other associated costs such as utilities, maintenance fees, groceries, security deposits,…you also need to think of.
Studio apartments typically have one room that serves as the living area, bedroom and kitchenette. Can you comfortably live in a small space, or do you require more rooms for more privacy? If you value having separate areas for sleeping, cooking, and entertaining, a studio apartment may not be the best choice for you.
You need to check if the studio apartment you want to live is close to essential utilities such as convenience stores, pharmacies, banks, restaurants, supermarkets,…And don’t forget about the transportation system. How much time will it take to get to your desired destinations and is it easy to travel?
Check what amenities are included in the rental, such as air conditioning, Wi-Fi, laundry facilities, parking,…Also, consider whether the apartment is fully furnished or unfurnished.
Security measures and fire prevention
A prerequisite when choosing a place to live is the assurance of safety when incidents occur. Studio apartment needs a fire alarm system, surveillance camera and 24/7 security guard.
Read the lease agreement carefully before signing. Make sure you understand the terms and conditions, including the length of the lease, payment schedule, rules and regulations. Especially in Vietnam, the term is only within 20-25 years. Therefore, if you choose to stay for a long time, you need to think carefully.
To sum up
To make the best decisions, you need to analyze those elements above first things first. If you wish to live in a decent apartment in a city center due to low budget. Then, a studio apartment is a perfect choice for you. Therefore, students and newlywed couples, who have not found or are in the process of buying your future home, can consider living in this reasonable apartment with no partition. If you have a big family of more than 3 members, an apartment with many rooms will be more suitable.
