agree  Melissa McMahon: agree these are classification of apartment sizes, but I wasn't able to get your link to work :/ - yep, you're right

  -> Thanks Melissa, the link in bold works (for me).

agree  Michael GREEN: Absolutely ....

  -> Thank you, Michael

neutral  kashew: Excludes kitchen + bathroom etc? A particularly mystifying system [F/T] for a Brit!
1 hr
  -> Yes, it does. It is rather complicated. Hence my suggestion of using surface area or number of bedrooms.

agree  Clair@Lexeme: Yes!

neutral  juliebarba: Hi Emma, out of interest, when you say 2 rooms, do you mean a 1 bed flat? the link isn't working...thanks
4 hrs
  -> Hi Julie. Try the link in bold. I've been deliberately vague because F1 is actually described as an apartment with separate kitchen and an F4 can have 2 to 4 bedrooms...
