Co-living might be a relatively new concept to Singaporeans, but it is definitely an up-and-coming way of life!
Whether you are a Singapore still living with your parents or an expat working in the Little Red Dot, you could give co-living a try one day.
Wait, does co-living mean sharing a room with… a stranger?
Nope, not exactly!
You get a room to yourself while sharing the living area and kitchen with housemates.
In fact, co-living allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds: privacy while living alone and at the same time, a social life when you’re in the mood.
What Is Co-living and Why Is It Popular?
Co-living is an interesting concept where like-minded people live in the same house, while having their own private rooms.
It gives you the experience of living with housemates. It’s a little like that college life you’ve experienced or seen on TV, only this time, with better amenities, en-suite bathrooms, better views and networking opportunities.
After a long day of work, you can choose to rest in your room for some me time or network with your housemates over a can of chilled beer.
Most co-living spaces in Singapore are found in condominiums and private properties. Read more about co-living here.
