At the moment my husband and I live in a flat. We have lots of space, and even room for pets as well as space to store all the items for our unborn daughter. It works out well for us, for the most part, and we have lived here for 5 years now. There is hardly anything I dislike about living here, besides drying clothes in a flat!
Obviously, it is easy enough to use a washing line in your garden, if you have one. It is also easy to use a tumble drier if you have room for one. We personally have room for a tumble dryer but I like to try and cut back on the electric bill where possible.
