Small spaces are becoming a reality for more and more people. As house prices soar and rentals stay fierce, the reality of living in a big city is a compromise on space. There has been a huge increase in the number of apartments or flats being built and this is simply because they take up less land and have a high return value when being sold by developers.
According to BBC research 1 in 5 UK homes are flats and this has been on the rise for the last decade. With houses being converted into flats and such inflated property prices it seems inevitable that the first place you may end up on the rental or property ladder is in a small apartment.
This is no bad thing, an apartment is easy to manage, has far fewer outgoings with regards to bills and is often a great stepping stone into the future. It does however, mean being a bit more intelligent and creative with the space available. So let’s have a look at the top six picks for apartment tables:
