Nearly over 50% of new homes are too small for families

Nearly over 50% of new homes are too small for families

According to research from the Royal Institute of British Architects, more than half of the new properties that are being built are not big enough to suit the needs of the families that are buying them.

When purchasing a new build, families are looking to have areas in the house to eat and socialise together, store possessions and to accommodate a growing family or elderly relatives, making the size of the properties smaller, will deprive the purchasers of this much needed criteria.

A typical new three bedroom home is lacking four square metres on minimum space that the buyers require - that is equivalent to the size of a family bathroom

The smallest three bedroom homes were surveyed and it was found that they were missing area equal to a double bedroom.

The average new three bedroom home in Yorkshire is 84 square metres, 25 square metres smaller than the same in London. Due to the research that has been carried out, the Royal Institute of British Architects are requesting for a national space standard that will be implemented to all new builds, in every location.
