A division is usually what divides between the kitchen and living room. Some benefits of studio living are: (1) there is only one room to heat, cool, and light – so the utility bills are quite low; (2) Cleaning would be easy since what you need is a dust and vacuum; (3) the pleasure you get from living efficiency and minimally. Though there are a lot of cons also especially if you plan to have a family. Studio Living would not be convenient.
