Top tip: an efficiency apartment can be comfortable

Efficiency apartments may have just one multi-functional room, but it can be pretty spacious. You can get creative with the space, combine furniture and accent design elements in a harmonious and practical way, and you will end up with a very comfortable apartment where you can relax and unwind. If you’re not on a tight budget, you should definitely check out some bachelor flats that have a separate kitchen. You wouldn’t believe the difference it makes. While they don’t cost an arm and a leg, they are typically more expensive than a normal single bedroom apartment, so it’s probably a good idea to aim for the higher end of the price range—the highest price for a studio in La Mesa, CA is currently $8,291.
