2.5 rooms

Hi. I've been looking at http://www.immoscout24.ch/ and notice that some apartments have 2.5 rooms ? What is .5 of a room ? And more importantly how are 2 rooms defined in Zurich ? I don't think they mean 2 bedrooms.

I would guess it means 1 bedroom and 1 living room, is that correct ?

Would be grateful for some clarification.

Re: 2.5 rooms

Hi Kyo,

Living in a 2.5 room apartment I can help with your question! There's usually a living area, single bedroom and a small "extra" room - in our case we've got a dining area off the kitchen. The kitchen, bathroom and balcony aren't classified as rooms as I gather they're essential! And usually you get a cellar area for storage as well.

Hope this helps

Re: 2.5 rooms

Hi, in fact the 1/2 room is usually defined in Switzerland as a bigger Kitchen where you have enough space for 4 people on a table.
The #rooms are not excluding livingroom, therefore a 2 1/2 rooms is a 1 Bedroom with a big Kitchen.

Hope this is helpful,

max ;-)
