Studio apartments appeared due to the fact that large cities couldn’t accommodate everyone who wanted to live there. As a result, a low-cost solution such as flat was found. Originally, such flats appeared about 100 years ago in Japan and the United States. Today this type of accomodation is very common in New York, London and other cities facing high levels of urbanisation. Typically, studios are rented by young people or single individuals. In such flats, the kitchen, dining room and bedroom form a joint space, sometimes with only one window. The only privacy you can get in such a place is in the bathroom, which is normally tiny.
In the early 2000s all over the world started to bring on the market houses with studio flats. Among them were both really interesting modern projects and fairly affordable options. As a result, buyers were offered really small flats of 25-27 square metres., where only one person or a couple can live. It’s almost impossible to accomodate a family of three in such apartments.
Among the advantages of flats the most obvious is their low cost. In addition, these flats, due to their small area, are easy to renovate and decorate with design or decoration techniques. That’s why studios are popular among creative people who want to be in the spotlight.
In big cities, these flats are the most popular for rent. They are also common in resorts.
