Bedsit

Noun

A one-room apartment typically consisting of a combined sitting room and bedroom with cooking facilities. 

“The bedsit is decrepit: walls a faded yellow instead of cream and flecking, one lonely window that probably doesn’t open, shagged carpet, and no furniture. But as she looks around, she’s not put off with the questionable setting because she’s envisioning her touches brightening up the place. A grey couch with mint coloured pillows and a light blue afghan. Perhaps white sheers over the window. She may be a poor doctoral student, but this decrepit bedsit is hers and it’s home. Home until her debt is paid off, at least.”
