According to recent Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) research, lack of space and lack of natural light is one of the most cited causes of dissatisfaction with the home . As house and energy prices continue to rise, and with the average one bedroom flat being the same size as a London Underground tube carriage, both consumers and specifiers are looking for solutions that not only help to maximise living space, but also answer aesthetic and performance demands.
Russell Yates, Managing Director at AluK, comments:
