London Rental Opportunity of the Week
I've written London Rental Opportunity of the Week for seven years, and this is what it all comes down to – trust me.
Why? Why would you even think that was a good idea?
Two "studios" in the same "house" with a "shared kitchen" – sure.
Turns out: Much, much worse. Like: "You're shitting next to your kitchen sink" worse.
At least the Mafia are glamorous. What do landlords have? Bluetooth headsets and no job.
A room with all the component parts for you to scrape a miserable little existence in.
This room could have been beautiful. Now it's a one-bed studio for rent with a futon.
Humans don't need hobs or normal-sized sinks, do they??
Want to rent somewhere that will result in a break-up and give you nightmares? Right this way!
The English language does not yet have a word for whatever this is, but if London landlords keep this shit up then it's going to have to.
We have all made aesthetic mistakes: outfits, haircuts, tattoos. But does that fully explain this claustrophobic brick-effect wallpaper?
Let's say you wake up here one morning. How long would it take till you cracked and went mad?
