It must be a Malaysian thing. You will notice the first question prospective buyers will ask is how many bedrooms. They just want more bedrooms.
Property developers want to make the price affordable. With the current per sq ft price being what it is they reduce the overall size. And since people like more bedrooms they squeeze in one more than necessary.
Yup.. it's the demand that created such supply.
Taking into consideration the expensive money the purchaser paid, it is really funny to see the small size of such rooms. For instance, the master bedroom of a small unit (1100 sqft ) is not installed with satelite tv point because the dimension of the room is not conducive to watch tv comfortably !!
Some of the smaller bathrooms don't have windows. Suction fan is installed at the ceiling to maintain humidity and ventilation of the bathrooms !!
This is a layout of a condo unit more than 10 years ago, and is a relatively small unit about 1900 sqft, only 3 rooms with 3 bathrooms
Look at the size of the living hall. It starts from the moment you step in thru the entrance foyer all the way to the balcony. The “Family” section is just illustration, there is no wall that separate this section from the living area. Because the living hall is so huge, the idea of the “Family” area comes out as a 2nd living hall for the family.
Look at the windows of the independent dining hall. 2 sets of the window are having the same direction with the balcony and another 3 sets of window are having the same direction of yard.
All bedrooms including the smallest room are having multiple sets of windows with different direction, and all bathrooms come with windows.
Lastly, take note of the layout orientation of master bedroom and living hall which are designed to face the same direction - the balcony of living hall and the big windows (4 sets of them) from master bedroom are facing the outside open area.
Some Master Bedrooms are at the front of the house while some are right at the back of the house.
Please explain this
during the ancient times , emperors in China always sleep at the back of the house ,reason is when a robber enter the house which room will they go in first, the masterroom but the emperor sleeps at the back, most probably the emperor will escape.
