ideal no. of rooms in your house?

Postby LOLMum » Thu Sep 15, 2011 2:02 pm

for your ideal house (regardless of size), how many rooms would you like to have just for your immediate family (you, dh and kids). dont include parents (inlaws) and maid(s) and exclude storerooms.


though it is just dh, dd, ds and myself, i would like to have at least 6 rooms.

3 bedrooms, 1 toy/game room, 1 study (dh), 1 library.

:rotflmao:

I was just thinking, won't that be the more the merrier? But then again, one's gotta be practical too - first, a big house with few occupants would be haunting to live in, and difficult to maintain, right? So ultimately, we'll be looking at the number of members in the family...but then again, if I got a bigger house, I might invite my parents to live with me...

Well, right now when the kids are small, 3 bedrooms works fine. But when they're older, the kids having their own rooms and a common study room would be nice, that makes 4. But after they get married, and if they have their own home, I guess 2 rooms would be fine for DH and I :)

micollh, jumbo flats have 5 rooms so no need to go for bungalow yet.

For me, ideally will be 7 rooms. 1 for me+dh, 4 for each of my kids, 1 as playroom (for now and can be converted to study room later), 1 for entertainment.

ya jumbo flats are huge, abt 164sqm I think. I think only a few estates (woodlands, yishun) have jumbo units.

Yup, nowadays mostly 4 bedrooms the max for flats and condos.

Hey my ideal is still at least 14 rooms.....

In view of the rising property price and that everyone might have to stay under one roof one day. So I would like to have 3 rooms each for each of my child so they can stay with their family. 2 rooms for us, 1 general room, room for pils/ parents if they are still around as well as not forgetting the maid(s) to help out in a big household....
