This studio in Sydenham has been cleverly designed to make the most of the space. By fitting a spiral staircase between the sink and the washing machine, the flat can be on two floors, keeping the sleeping and living areas separate, without wasting space with hallways.
There's not much excess space in the sleeping area, but by being conservative on space, the rent comes in at just £625 a month.
This newly refurbished studio costs just £650 a month, fully-furnished. There's clearly space for both a wardrobe and a bed, and the agent points out that it's likely to suit a single working professional.
There's no separate oven, but by adding some shelving, there's room for a fridge a hot-plate and a microwave, which could serve someone well if they're after a crash-pad.
Desirable and leafy Harrow also has its share of affordable property, if you are prepared to be flexible on space. This property, for example, costs just £665 a month.
There's room in this well-maintained property for a double bed and a dining table. Given the fact it has just seen a price cut, it could be an affordable option.
The clever use of space in this flat includes a pull-down ladder, which enables a bed to be included on a sleeping platform, so not an inch is wasted. It means the sellers can price this Clapton flat keenly at £235,000.
The other side of the living space offers room to relax, for the busy professional.
You can even afford to buy in a highly desirable part of West London for just £220,000, if you are prepared to think creatively about space. This flat in W2 offers a separate kitchen and bathroom for the money.
At 192 square feet, there isn't an awful lot of room to spare, but the owners have managed to find space for a washing machine, which is very handy.
