Q: What is the average size of a humble two bed apartment?

I know this is kind of a "how long is a piece of string" type question..

I can find out the average prices per square meter for various cities, but what is a good rule of thumb for apartment size.

So nothing special, just a living room, bathroom, small kitchen and two beds....how many sq meters could that be?

 

How many square meters are the apartments that fellow members live in?....estimates ok.

Most of the 2-bedroom places I've lived in were in the 90m2 range.

Generally in the range of 40-60 square meters. Anything bigger than that is in three bedroom territory.

I would say a minimum living space would be 40sqm. Our 3 bed apartment is 100 sqm, and that can feel cramped with 3 adults and a kid living in it.

Unfortunatly, our apartment is on the one level. I would love the MILs bedroom to be on a different level.... say 6 floors higher with access via a rope ladder on the outside of the building Smile

I agree that a two bedroom, to be even a decent place to live, must be 90 to 100 sq. meters.  90 square meters for a three bedroom must be like living in four shoe boxes.  I can not even imagine two brooms in 40SMs.  That does not even sound possible.  My studio is 40SM.

A two bedroom apartment? Hard to say. It really depends on the size of the rooms and how you measure. But if I had to hazard a guess, I'd have to say it's around about the size of a two-bedroom apartment.

However, if you merely want to fit 2 BEDs into one bedroom, I'd say that a 2 bed apartment should be roughly the same size as a 1-bedroom apartment. I must say I went to a great deal of trouble to give you the most accurate possible measurements here, so it had better be helpful.

I don't want a "humble" apartment.  I want the asshole apartment.  The apartment that pushes smaller, weaker apartments down at the beach in front of their girlfriends.  The apartment that gets pleasure out of the suffering of inferior apartments.  

 

That is the apartment that I want.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
