Instead of our usual What X Rents You feature, UrbanTurf rounded up some options for a studio apartment to see what a prospective renter can expect to pay in the District.

The Varying Cost of a Studio Rental in DC: Figure 1

An Efficient Studio with a Bedroom Nook

Blocks from the Dupont Circle Metro station, this studio apartment makes use of every nook and cranny. The kitchen is through an archtop doorway in an area separate from the rest of the apartment, featuring tiled floors and built-in shelves. A Queen-sized bed can fit neatly into a rectangular recess off the main living area. A walk-through closet leads to the bathroom. All utilities are included in the rent for the unit, which also has parquet wood floors and over-sized windows.

An Oversized English Basement in Petworth

This bright, pet-friendly English basement in Petworth is being marketed as a junior one-bedroom for a reason. The large studio runs the length of the house with doors on either side, partially bisected by a partition wall. The kitchen straddles both the living and bedroom spaces and has a granite-top breakfast bar. A nook to the right of the entrance also offers bonus space. The unit has a large walk-in closet and access to both a laundry room and a rear paved yard with grill and dining area.

A Balcony and No Bedroom

Located between Girard Street Park and Meridian Hill is this studio that has something neither of the other two options have: private outdoor space. The 500 square-foot unit has a long footprint that differentiates the living and sleeping areas, especially because there is a recess at the end of the unit that accommodates a bed. While a deep walk-in closet sits in this nook, an additional closet is closer to the entrance.

Rent: $1,590/month
