I agree with Alison what is being built now is simply not fit for purpose. Bedrooms in particular need to support healthy living. We have given up on the idea of downsizing because of the dreadful design and space of apartments and we are looking at penthouses. It's shameful that our building regulations allow developers to put profit before the provision of property that supports living.

Mary Beth Packard, that sounds right up my street! I got 2 stripes painted round an office room many years ago that perfectly matched 2 colours in the curtain fabric. Looked amazing.
