Will British Room Sizes Finally Increase?

It has been well documented that British new-build homes are the smallest in Europe. The average floor space of a new home here (this includes houses as well as flats) is just 818 square feet; Denmark is highest with 1,475 square feet, and Greece comes second with 1,361 square feet. In France, it is more than 1,200 square feet.


Data complied by the Home Builders Federation and other organisations shows that a typical new-home built in Britain this year will be 55 per cent smaller than one built 80 years ago. And there are now 20 per cent more rooms than a quarter of a century ago, meaning we have moved from a country of few large rooms to one of numerous small ones.
