What is a Studio Apartment?

A studio is a one-room apartment that combines the bedroom, living room and kitchen/kitchenette into one open space. A studio apartment has a separate bathroom and often a separate closet. Although most studio apartment areas do not include any walls or partitions separating each room, there is space for a bed, living area and kitchen. Studio apartments within a rental property or apartment community may also include a patio or balcony, smart home features, and access to on-site amenities, like a pool and fitness center.

How Big is a Studio Apartment?

The square footage of a studio apartment varies depending on the location and community you are interested in. Essex studio apartments in the Seattle area can range up to 700 square feet in size.

How Much is a Studio Apartment?

The monthly rental cost of a studio apartment can fluctuate based on the type of home you are interested in and various other factors like upgraded appliances, the floor of the apartment, or location in the community. Generally, studio apartments are more affordable than a one-bedroom or junior one-bedroom apartment. We recommend contacting the community you are interested in for more information on studio availability, pricing and any current leasing specials.
