Hi all,

My husband has accepted a job in Stockholm and we will be moving with our 6yr old child in the middle of next year. I have been reading up about finding housing (among other things) and the description of rental properties is different from what I am used to. What does it mean when a property is described as having 3 rooms? Does it mean it has 3 bedrooms or does it mean there will be a kitchen, living room and one bedroom? Or something else entirely?

Thank you for reading and any replies.

It indicates the number of rooms excluding bathroom and kitchen

So a 3 room apartment would usually have 2 bedrooms and a living room

What is this anglo thing with the landlord (or the Government...? ohmy.gif ) deciding what rooms are bedrooms. I can do that myself, thank you very much.

So conformist! Nanny state! laugh.gif

What are you on about ? Nobody has rules on this but different countries have different ways that folks most understand.

You more or less summarize my point (note the smilies).

It was an (admittedly not brilliant) attempt to satirize how certain Swedish practices and customs are interpreted by some.
