The kitchen may be located in the central room or in the single separate room. The bathroom is usually in a small room. The cost of studios is usually the lowest in the country. In the United Kingdom, flats with a shared bathroom are often known as bedsits. These flats are in high demand among the students who come to the United Kingdom to pursue higher studies. They rent a studio apartment and share with their friends. This reduces their costs and they can also stay at in a good area. The facilities provided for the residents are also often of the best kind. This helps the people staying in the studio apartments to live comfortably.
