    I’m really surprised as I wouldn’t call these small apartments. Do you have anything that working class people would call small when you do these articles?

      Hi Tb. Yes indeed cause the article is only about small living room. Though that22 and you have a point about normal people on budget, but as much as possible we would like to encourage everyone that sometimes having enough is not enough. We aim to teach people to have a better ideas when it comes to home improvement rather than using old boring repeating traditional stuffs.
