What is a bachelor apartment
Searching for a rental apartment and wondering what the difference is between a bachelor and a studio, or between a one-bedroom with den and two-bedroom? Understanding different terminology used to describe available rental apartments is an important part of a new home search.
A bachelor apartment is one that combines the living, kitchen, dining and sleeping areas all within one room, along with a separate bathroom. Bachelors commonly have less square footage than one- or two-bedroom apartments, and are usually occupied by just one person.
By comparison, a studio apartment is similar to a bachelor but frequently has a separate kitchen and/or dining area from the living room and bedroom area. Studios are often a bit bigger, square footage wise, than bachelor apartments.
With a one-bedroom apartment, rental home seekers can often expect an apartment layout with a single living and dining space, a separate kitchen area, and separate bedroom.
A one-bedroom with a den may include a separate room or partitioned area in addition to the bedroom, but most often without a closet. Dens are often smaller than a second bedroom as well. A two-bedroom apartment has two separate bedrooms, usually each with a closet. Bedroom sizes can vary, with some apartments featuring a larger main bedroom and ensuite with a smaller child's room as the second bedroom, while others may feature two equally sized rooms.
