Title: How many pyeong (평) is a studio apartment?
Post by: oatmealkooky on February 10, 2014, 11:36:09 am
I'm trying to figure out the size of my studio (one-room) apartment. How many pyeong would the typical NET studio apartment be?

1 room apartments are typically 7 평 (23mē).

If this is because your looking at buying/renting- just be careful as common areas that are not part of your actual apartment can be used as part of the calculation.

When I was looking slightly than larger one-rooms were closer to 40m squared (some advertised as 43), but that is def including more than the house itself. My current one room (which is slightly larger than some) is 30m squared on the lease. Can't help with the pyeong, as my lease doesnt include it

A typical, standard sized studio apartment is/should be 12 pyeong.

1평 is equal to 3.30mē. So that would make your place 9평.

Most of the time they advertise X평 but you don't get that much because they include common areas.

By the way they are LEGALLY supposed to advertise the metric size.

I'm moving and have been looking into houses a lot recently. I found an app that general shows both sizes, so it's helpful.

The smaller, individual unit size is called 전용면적 (jeon yong myeon jeok). The larger area, which usually includes the hallway/common areas, is called 계약면적 (gye yak myeon jeok).

Just in case they don't state which it is and you want to ask :)

Quote from: Methew
There are many advantages to an alcove studio apartment in NYC. You get the same benefits of a full size apartment with less space to maintain, allowing for one of the most favorable renting $ per square feet costs anywhere in NYC. So, if you are serious about getting a really good deal. For further details, try https://www.nyrentownsell.com/blog/alcove-studio-apartment/ (https://www.nyrentownsell.com/blog/alcove-studio-apartment/) this site for sure.  An alcove studio apartment, for example, is not cheap, despite the fact that it's what you'll find first on an NYC real estate search.

I like this
