The Main Difference between a Studio and an Efficiency Apartment
While studio apartments are similar to efficiency apartments, there is one difference to keep in mind. Studios similarly have a single room with an adjoining bathroom but are usually slightly larger than efficiency apartments. The difference in size is due to the fact that studios have a larger kitchen while efficiency apartments have what's often called a 'kitchenette'.
