Re: Apartment size

Its like this has never been mentioned before. The number of rooms is typically the number of rooms except of kitchens and bathrooms.

I was going to suggest that it was non-plumbed rooms - but I have 2 houses both of which have 1 bedroom with a sink in it - and they both count as rooms.

The .5 rooms bit come about when newer builds had proportionally larger living rooms (often doubling as lounge/diners) instead of the more traditional even sizing of rooms.

Finally modern apartments often go for the "loft" look meaning a single room for kitchen, dining and living. This still counts as 1.5 rooms.
