Bedsitters in Kenya: how to give them a fresh look

As it is said, every long journey starts with a single step; this is largely applied by the beginners who rent bedsitters in Kenya. I also started my independent life in a bedsitter which was fun I must say !

Their simplicity in makeup, furnishing cost and the cheap renting cost has made it in attracting all the young people in Kenya who have got their first jobs.

Single rooms might be cheaper than this but are more preferable for college students who don’t need space for kitchen and bathrooms.  Bedsitters are self contained with all this provisions.

These rooms have a relatively bigger size of about 3 by 5 meters compared to single rooms which have a minimum of 3 by 3 meters.

Room dividers – can be used to break up an open space and section off areas while providing ample storage space.
