Efficiency apartment vs bachelor flat: which one is right for you?

Cheap studios and efficiency apartments normally have the kitchen in the main room, which is a major discouraging factor for renters… But don’t let this scare you away: there are always some exceptions that prove the rule, and it’s worth locating them in Southwestern Hills, Des Moines, IA too. Some newer apartment buildings have very spacious floor-plans with layouts that allow you to divide the sleeping and living space for more privacy and comfort. A few design tricks, like a well-placed mirror, a bookshelf divider and functional space-saving furniture can make all the difference. As a benchmark, keep in mind that, in this neighborhood, apartments offer about 500 Sqft of living space, on average. Be prepared that bachelor flats with a separate kitchen tend to be a bit more expensive than your average one room apartment. If you plan on cooking and eating in a lot, it may be worth spending the extra dollars per month to have your kitchen separate from your bedroom/living area. It all comes down to finding a studio apartment that fits your lifestyle and your personal preferences.
