Studio Apartments: The Minimalist’s Apartment

Studio apartments come in all shapes and sizes, though maybe with more emphasis on different shapes. When it comes to size, you expect it to be on the smaller side of things because that’s what you are looking for: a studio.

So, what is a studio apartment? A studio apartment is generally a two room apartment where one room comprises the bedroom, living room, and kitchen and the second room is the bathroom. The majority of studio apartments within larger complexes have their utilities included and come with a space heater instead of central A/C. Kitchens vary between studio to studio and sometimes the only kitchen amenities included are sinks while others vary between having a condensed kitchenette and a others a full kitchen, so be sure to clarify what you’re getting. Also, many studio apartments come furnished with a bed, television, and dressers.

Studio apartments are great for a number of reasons. If you are a student trying to cut costs while going to college, you are probably going to seriously consider renting a studio apartment at some point. It’s doubtful you’ll ever need a full kitchen when top ramen and mac and cheese go so well with Sriracha anyway. Since many studios are month-to-month and some are even weekly, they are great for those new to an area that unsure where to begin when looking for longer-term apartments for rent. And of course, if you just need a cheap apartment for rent, a studio apartment is one of your best options.

Varieties in Studio Apartments for rent:

When it comes to rental living, studio apartments are one of the oddballs that can exist in many different scenarios. Sometimes you’ll find a Craigslist ad with a studio in someone’s basement, other times they are just another option in a traditional apartment complex. Sometimes you’ll find historic hotels that have turned their rooms into studio apartments for rent or in places like New York City or San Francisco, you’ll find a studio the size of a hallway and you will feel like the luckiest person on earth.

As one would expect, the name “studio apartment” differs all over the world while referring to the same basic thing, but here some fun facts about studios in other countries:

  • In Brazil, the term “studio” is used for modern appeal since it is an English term
  • In Singapore, “studio apartments” are specifically marketed to senior citizens
  • In Japan, “one room mansion” is the term commonly referred to their even smaller-sized studio apartments

Great Intown neighborhood
Underwood hills is a great place to live and there are some of the best places to dine.

Midtown: Fun, vibrant, growing
Midtown is among the best neighborhoods to live in the city. Everything you could need is an easy walk away. It includes some of the best restaurants and is a short taxi to the Virginia-Highlands, Inman Park or Buckhead.

Perfect in-town neighborhood
Inman Park is an incredible place to live. Close to downtown, Midtown, the Highlands, and both major interstates (75/85 and 20). It has a residential area feel but is still convenient to all major parts.

Great neighborhood - walk to almost everything
VaHi is a great neighbor that works for single, marrieds, young families, and well, pretty much everyone. If you're going to live in Atlanta, make the most of it and live in this historic neighborhood that combines quiet streets and lots of trees with easy walking access to great restaurants, bars, shops, and Piedmont Park. we love it here.

Great location for getting on/off I-75. Easy/quick/tasty food options. Howell Mill is a little sketchy.

Candler Park/Lake Claire
This is a great neighborhood for being outdoors--lots of great parks and running areas, plus a short walk to several restaurants and coffee shops. I would recommend this area for young couples/families or for those who want to rent/buy a house since there aren't many apartment complexes around. Not an easy commute to Buckhead though!

St. Charles and Highland
I think this area is the best place for young professionals to live in Atlanta. You're close to many fun bars, shops, and restaurants, and the neighborhood is perfect for running and walking. You're also close to Piedmont Park/Midtown and a short drive from Buckhead. It can be hard to find apartment/condos here with lots of amenities, and if you do, you will likely pay quite a bit for them.

Kinda sorta Buckhead
If you want to live in Buckhead on a budget or be close to the malls, then maybe this location is for you. Unfortunately, it's not really "in" Buckhead in my opinion, as most of the bars/restaurants are a solid 10-15 minute cab ride away with the traffic on Peachtree.

Great mid-point between Highlands and Midtown
Living on Monroe Drive on the west side of Va-Highlands neighborhood was a great place. It offered the walkability of a Highlands location, but it was also only a mile down 10th street from Midtown spots. Also, Piedmont Park and Park Tavern was right across the street!

Highland Walk apartments
"This apartment complex is close to the Inman Park area, which is a great neighborhood for running/walking and for dining (Highland Bakery, Fritti, etc. are delicious). Also very close to I-85 access, which makes it easy to get to the airport or up to Buckhead. I wouldn't walk around by myself at night though!"

Great Location, but careful about noice
Great location, great price, but be careful about unit. There are a couple of rooms that are by the rail tracks and those can be quite noise

Wellington Buckhead
While these condos are a little older, it is a great place to live in the Buckhead area. The area is safe, has a lot of young people and is very central to many things in the city. Restaurants, bars and parks are all within a 5 minute drive. Some things are in walking distance, but probably not the best place for someone who does not have a car.

Love the area.
Easy walk to midtown and downtown businesses and Piedmont Park. Lots of yummy restaurants and bars nearby.

Living near Piedmont Park is great
Walking distance to a Marta stop or down into the Virginia Highlands, lots of bars and restaurants nearby, plus a huge park to run or relax in. Post Parkside had communal gas grills on a back patio that faced the park, which was an amazing spot for a BBQ almost any time of year. Also a lively LGBT community in the neighborhood.

Great location
Lived in Virginia Highlands apartments for 2 years and had a great experience. Awesome location, 1 block from Piedmont Park, 0.5 mile to bars in the Highlands. While I never had a problem, apparently car break-ins are a problem.

Great neighborhood!
For anyone who works in Buckhead or who is looking for a great family neighborhood, this is the spot. We loved living hear and got a great house for a reasonable amount of money. You can walk to restaurants and spots for a late night drink. Really awesome!

Peachtree Hills/Lindbergh
great parts of this area: super close to MARTA, charming peachtree hills neighborhood and easy access publix and some shopping. down side: middle of atlanta sprawl and not whole lot is walkable. can be tough to get in/out of this area when piedmont backs up. all in all a good area to live if you work in buckhead

Rented a house in Brookhaven for a year, and it was an incredible location for a family, and someone working in Buckhead; affordable, exceptionally convenient (the town brookhaven development has a publix, a costco, a gym, and a bunch of great restaurants and shops), plus there is a great commercial area on dresden with more places to eat, etc; brookhaven is underrated; I would stay south of oglethorpe, though - beyond that starts to 'feel' far away (if you work in buckhead, in particular)

Virginia Highlands is a great, walkable area of town with bars and restaurants. Great place to live :)
