A dream that most people harbor is to have their own home. However, this dream is cut short most of the time since a more economic and budget friendly option is taken up such as flats. Even then, a dream is a dream and nothing can take its place, unless it is something better. Most people presume that just because villas are expensive when compared to flats, it is not the right option for them. Before jumping to any conclusions like these it would be best to take a look at what villas have on offer and how one can benefit from them.
Structure and amenities
To begin with, the foremost thing that one needs to look at is the structure and the amenities provided. When it comes to a villa, the name itself brings up a mental image of something luxurious and massive. Whereas, a flat would elicit an image where the surface area is small at the same time it is comfortable and cozy. On comparing the two options, the villa would be larger and one can have their own garden, several washrooms, a swimming pool, equipped kitchen and larger rooms. These are a few luxuries that are not always possible when it comes to flats.
Another aspect that should be looked at is personal space. Living in a villa, which is surrounded by fenced walls clearly defines your space and creates a boundary. This is true even if you are living in a residential complex. However, when it comes to flat living, there is a sense of sharing, where you would have to open your front door and look at your neighbors door. Therefore, it can be said that a villa would give home owners more privacy when compared to a flat.
There are a number of apartment complexes where they have gardens. But, this certainly does not take the place of a villa. This is because flats have a restricted amount of surface area, that too for the most part it is a shared area. For this reason, it would be all the more difficult to have a large garden. In contrast, when you are living in a villa, this will not be a worry since you would be in a position to take a call on what you want to do with the space you have. Additionally, a number of apartment complexes do not allow pets which make it difficult but villas pose no such issues.
Other aspects that you should look at
In addition to all the points that have been discussed in this article, there are a few other things that one should take stock of before taking a call on this. Flats are more or less overcrowded having more people than it bought to have. This could result in the apartment complex being noisy. Structurally, if the high rise is not built with caution it could pose to a huge risk to the residents, since accidents can take place.
Now, that you are aware about various aspects relating to living in villas or flats, its time to take a call on which one suits you best.
