What you need to know before renting a studio



What is a studio? Definition



A studio is a dwelling that consists of only one room. This serves both as a bedroom and a living room, what is called a “living room”. This room also offers an open kitchen (also called a “kitchen corner” or a kitchenette). The toilets and the bathroom (the “water rooms”) are separate. In terms of regulations, a studio must at least offer an area of ​​9 square meters.



What is the difference between an apartment and a studio?



The studio differs from the apartment for its “kitchen area” found in the main room. If the kitchen is separated from the main room by walls and a door, it becomes a one-bedroom apartment. We see that the difference between studio and T1 is quite tenuous. It is sometimes enough to knock down a partition to transform a T1 into a studio.
