We asked expats what a typical home or apartment in UK is like. They answered...

"Expat homes and apartments in England typically have a modern, cosmopolitan feel and may feature up-to-date appliances, modern fixtures and comforts, and a mix of traditional and contemporary design elements. The kitchens are usually well-equipped and the bedrooms are comfortable and spacious, with large windows that let in plenty of natural light. Expats may also enjoy access to shared amenities such as gyms, swimming pools, and recreation centers. While some opt for homely and comfortable furnishings, others may appreciate the high-end refinement and luxury of hotel-style apartments," wrote a member who made the move to UK.

"2 bedroom flat. Not sure if this is typical but it was what we could afford. Cost of living is very high and the exchange to the Canadian dollar is extremely prohibitive. Our kitchen is modern and different to home which we like. Our least favourite is apartment-living with neighbour noise and the lack of space - we went from a 1500 square foot home to a 600 sq foot apartment," explained one expat living in Abingdon, UK.
