Starter home, weeknight city crash-pad, or weekend city pied-a-terre? Studios are versatile creatures that can serve plenty of purposes and life configurations no matter your age or ambition. Maybe you could even consider an investment in a studio home an investment in couples therapy?

Whatever your plans for your studio home, we advise you to pack light. While Murphy beds were invented by a practical Mr. Murphy right here in San Francisco, even folding the bed out of the way doesn’t mean you’ll have space for a grand piano, china cabinet, or any other big and bulky pieces. Living large is a metaphor, not packing instructions for studio life in the city.

Is a studio home the same as a junior one-bedroom home? The short answer: Yes-ish.

The longer answer: Some would argue that studio homes represent the lower range of the studio home square footage spectrum (450 square feet and under) while junior one-bed is a better description for the larger studios that have home sizes in the same range as small one-bedroom homes. The junior one-bed, in other words, has all the square footage of a small one-bedroom home, just not all the walls that make for a separate bedroom.

Another Answer: Property developers created a pretend home size (junior one-bedroom) to make it easier to say yes to the price to size ratio of newer studio homes that can easily post aggressive price per square foot metrics. While developers will always have marketing that pushes the boundaries and tape measures that are consistently generous with the square footage, tax records and MLS listings are binary creatures of one or zero. so you’ll want to know how the tax records reflect your home: zero bedrooms or one bedroom?
