  1. In my opinion, there is no one suggested size that you can call spacious for any BHK combination, not even a 2BHK. In a city like Mumbai, where real estate comes at a premium, a 700 to 800 sq. ft. apartment is considered rather spacious, whereas in Bangalore it is a 1000 sq. ft to 1200 sq ft 2bhk that is considered rather comfortable.

    So, in order to answer this question, you need to consider your city, how many people will be living in the house and more.

    With Interiors that suit your lifestyle, you can make any small room look big and spacious. It's all about space optimization, using the right furniture, right color paints on the wall. Using furniture pieces that perform multiple functions - like a storage chest can be used as a center table in your living area or hall. It's about smart designing of your space.

  2. 2BHK consists of 2 bedrooms, 1 hall, 1 kitchen, and washrooms. If you are planning to buy or are planning to construct a 2BHK property, especially as per RERA guidelines, this answer will be helpful for you. 

    As per RERA the minimum carpet area for 2 BHK is 300 square feet. RERA carpet area excludes the dry area such as balconies, utility.

    RERA has different guidelines for different cities. The minimum area required for 2BHK in Mumbai is 500 sq. feet but for the independent floor, there is no specific minimum area for 2bhk. 

    Here is the list of RERA area-wise suggestions for the construction of a 2BHK flat generally for 500- 700 sq feet 

     

    • Hall - 12 x 16 = 192 sq feet 
    • Bedroom 1 - 12 x 14 = 168 sq feet 
    • Bedroom 2 - 10 x 12 = 120 sq feet 
    • Kitchen - 8 x 10 = 80 sq feet 
    • Bathroom - 6 x 8 =48 sq feet 
    • Bathroom common - 6 x 8 = 48 sq feet 
    • Passage - 4 x 13 = 52 sq feet 

    Hope this answer is helpful to you and you have got the idea of the minimum area for 2bhk by reading this answer.

  3. Honestly, it’s a tough one since there is no set size chart for real estate properties. In some localities, the minimum area for 2BHK apartment can be 300-600 sq. ft., whereas it can also be 1500-2000 sq ft. in area. It all depends on the city you are located at and the land area you possess and it is extremely hard to say what is the ideal area for 2BHK apartment.

    A 2BHK configuration has 1 master bedroom, 1 small bedroom, 1 hall and 1 kitchen, 1 or 2 bathrooms. In India, I believe a 900-1200 sq ft. area will be enough to make a spacious 2BHK apartment. 

    Now, the minimum area required for 2BHK is somewhat settled between 300-450 sq. ft. However, you can make it look spacious in terms of designing and interior décor. If you want a good carpet area in your house even if it is built in a smaller area, you can make adjustments. Look for cupboards and shelves that are economical and sustainable as per your apartment. Utilize the walls and get some mounted cupboards for extra storage and space. For a small bedroom, you can opt for a sofa cum bed to avoid a chaotic look. And most importantly, choose light, breezy and pastel shades of green, pink and whites. A few exceptions from darker shade cards are black and navy blue. If you feel comfortable you can add them too.

    I hope this answer helps you.

  4. RERA has passed a mandatory square feet area for flats. The standard size of a 2 bhk flat is 300 square feet which consists of a hall, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and washrooms. Let us understand what 2 bhk means, how many square feet as per RERA carpet area.

    2 BHK flat area in square feet

    • The hall  is located in the center of the flat and the ideal area of a hall  should be 12 x 16 = 192 sq feet 
    • In many 2 BHK flats the configuration serves bedrooms, majorly 2 washrooms one in the hall and another is attached to the master bedroom of the house. The ideal size for the washroom 1  is a 12 x 14 = 168 sq feet 
    • In 2 BHK the master  Bedroom carpet area is 10 x 12 = 120 sq feet 
    • The size of the attached  Bathroom  is 6 x 8 =48 sq feet 
    • The standard size of Bathroom common is 6 x 8 = 48 sq feet 
    • The ideal size of Kitchen  in a 2BHK flat is  8 x 10 = 80 sq feet 

    The size can vary for 2 BHK apartments and the above areas are the minimum size of 2 BHK flats. The developer is not allowed to construct the property below the minimum RERA guideline for constructing 2 BHK flats. 

    Hope you find this answer useful and have got the idea 2 bhk means how many square feet

  6. This answer is edited.

    You know when you are house hunting there are not one but a million thoughts and questions that cross our minds. Some are absolutely critical, some are thought-worthy, while others can be just anxiety speaking out loud (I can assure you, my mind plays with me, hence the last one). Anyway, if you are on a look out for a 2bhk house, it is valid for you to wonder how many square feet are needed for a spacious 2bhk. But before jumping on to that, let us understand what 2BHK means.

    What 2 BHK means exactly?

    A 2BHK configuration means you are looking at a 2 bedroom, hall and kitchen apartment to live in. In this arrangement, out of 2 bedrooms 1 can be a master bedroom, while the other one can be a smaller bedroom with lesser area.

    Here’s an interesting thing you must know about, many metropolitan areas are now seeing a growth in the demand for 2.5BHK apartments. These are basically the apartments with 2 bedrooms, 1 hall, 1 kitchen and an extra small room which can be used as a study room, temple, or a store room.

    How many square feet are needed for a spacious 2BHK?

    Anyway, jumping back to your original question. There is no set area as defined by the authorities, however, a standard 2bhk can start from 300 sq ft and go up to 700 sq ft. But since you need a spacious 2BHK, you can go premium. A premium 2bhk can range from an 800 sq ft area to 1200 sq ft. as well.

    However, mind you the prices are gonna go up as the area expands. If you are on a budget yet looking for a spacious 2BHK then you can do a couple of things:

    • Buy a premium 2bhk in a non-premium area
    • Buy a standard 2bhk in a premium area and play with the interiors to make it look spacious.

    I hope you have a certain idea about what 2bhk means and how much area it should have. Do hit that like button at the top :)

  7. Hi, Buddy,

    For any house buyer, buying a home is both an exciting and terrifying experience. I am currently searching for 2 BHK apartments in Bangalore city. However, each builder offers me a different catalogue with varied pricing and square footage for a two-bedroom apartment. Hence I am perplexed about the major question of 2 BHK means how many square feet.

    Purchasing a home takes careful preparation, good budgeting, and a thorough examination of the properties and parties involved. Hence, I am afraid that I do not get fooled by the glossy catalogues of each builder. It is imperative for me to know, how much square feet required for 2bhk?

    I have gone through the above-mentioned answers, and I would like to extend my gratitude to all of them for providing such informative answers on the carpet area of a 2BHK flat.

    As Neha Maam discussed that RERA has provided mandatory square footage for the builders, which means that buildings must now be planned in accordance with the city municipality's regulations. Because you must obtain municipal approval, the minimum space must be adhered to in accordance with the building requirements set forth in the municipal building by-laws.

    I would like to share the square footage/carpet area of a 2 BHK house that is provided to me by XYZ developers: 

    2-bedroom  = 2 x 120 sq. ft. = 240 sq.ft.
    1-kitchen  = 1 x 50 sq.ft. = 50 sq.ft.
    2-toilets = 2 x 35 sq.ft. = 70 sq.ft.
    Liv / din  = 1 x 120 sq.ft. = 120 sq.ft.
    Stair space = 1 x 105 sq.ft. = 105 sq.ft.
    2 balconies = 2 x 20 sq.ft.= 40 sq.ft.
    Circulation area = 10% = 70 sq.ft.

    Total square feet = 795 sq.ft.

    Add 20% more for the area of the walls = 795 x 1.2 = 954 sq.ft. (covered area)

    Though for all the afore-mentioned answers, I have got some idea about my query of, 2 BHK means how many square feet. However, I would like to get your assistance in reviewing my response and advising me on whether the square footage offered by the builder is appropriate or not.

  8. Hi there,

    Spaciousness is actually a matter of perception and smart organisation. By far you must have read and understood what could be the standard size of a 2 BHK house or what is the minimum square feet for 2 BHK. As pointed out by Mr. Rahul and Miss Surbhi, the size of a house can be different for different states. I know this because I have a personal experience regarding this. I recently moved to Bangalore from Mumbai and I could clearly feel the difference in the size of rooms of similar configuration flats i.e. 2 BHK. In Mumbai, I used to live in a 740 square feet 2 BHK house and the house I moved into in Bangalore is around 860 square feet.

    So, it is entirely upon the builder as to how much area he/she uses to build a 2 BHK configuration. But one crucial thing which I noticed a few days after moving to the house was that organisation of the room is a major factor that determines how many square feet are required for 2 bedroom house. In Mumbai, the house looked smaller than it was since it was cluttered with poor organisation. And the flat I rented in Bangalore was semi-furnished so I could arrange it to my will.

    So, what is the minimum square feet for 2 BHK, this is a question that will always remain debatable, so we can do our part of a smart organisation and make even small rooms look spacious. And that is why I am going to share my tips on how I made my 2 BHK look more spacious.

    • Add only the necessary furniture in the house. 
    • If possible, buy furniture which serves 2 or more purposes, like a bed with storage units for clothes and shoes, a wall-mounted cupboard, a sofa-cum-bed, and so on.
    • Utilise spaces smartly. For example, make use of the space above or on the sides of the fridge and arrange similar items on both sides of the fridge to give a better appeal.
    • Keep a good distance between furniture to avoid any cluttered look.
    • Use mirrors across the walls to give an illusion of a bigger room.

    You can use your own ideas and get a spacious 2 BHK room for yourself without having to rely on standard size or area for it. Do tell me in the replies if you liked my answer.
