If you’re hoping to live alone but want to save some money, studio apartments are the perfect solution. Open floor plans let sunshine into every corner, and many studios are spacious enough to set up separate areas for lounging and sleeping. With ample closet space, studios are typically large enough to hold a bed, dresser, TV, couch, and other necessary comforts, plus a your own kitchen area and bathroom. In Madison — where rent can be stressful without a roommate — studios solve that issue with rents starting around $470, and many include all utilities to keep your living costs down even more. Downtown Madison has plenty of studios to keep you in the midst of the city action, while studios outside the city offer a little solace in your own space.
