What is a Convertible Apartment?

A convertible apartment is the intermediate floor plan between a studio and a one-bedroom layout. When a studio has an additional nook for bedroom space or even an obviously allocated spot for a bed, it can then be considered a convertible. 

When a property offers a convertible layout, it usually means the space is larger than a studio and has a separation between the main living area and the sleeping area. This separation can simply be an alcove for the bed, a partial wall, a separate room with a sliding door, or extra space like a hallway that creates a buffer between the sleeping alcove and kitchen/living area.

Convertibles and junior one-bedrooms are often very similar layouts, and the terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Usually, junior one-bedrooms are smaller versions of a property’s one-bedroom floor plan without a bedroom door.  The price-point for a junior one-bedroom tends to be close to a convertible, with studios slightly below that range.
