The West Midlands has been named the UK region with the most living space based on the UK's average house price of £231,000, according to new research.

In order to help house hunters get the best value for money, the team at self-storage company, Space Station, analysed 4,000 data points from 650 live property adverts across the country, all within the UK average price bracket.

In the West Midlands, buyers get the best value in terms of space, with many properties boasting around 30 per cent more room at 104.92 square metres. Desirable features, such as utility rooms, garage space and built-in storage are also much more likely in this part of the country compared to other areas.

In second place is Yorkshire and the Humber, followed by Northern Ireland and the North West, respectively.

On the other hand, Greater London came at the very bottom of the list. Here, buyers can expect a tiny 45.75 square metre home for the UK average house price — less than half of the space offered across homes in the West Midlands. Additionally, house buyers are also unlikely to have a garage or utility space.

The study also found that those living in Yorkshire and the Humber are more likely to have a garage, while Scotland homes rank top for the most built-in storage, with an average of 3.7 built-in wardrobes or storage cupboards.

Vlatka Lake, Marketing Manager at Space Station, comments: 'Our research really highlights the space and built-in storage you can get for your money, with some interesting findings.

'It's great to see that more than half of the homes in Yorkshire and the Humber come with a garage space, as this is often a well sought-after feature. However, there's also a clear North/South divide at play here, which we can see from the amount of space on offer in southern homes versus those up north.

'Having more space is of course more appealing for many buyers, but it doesn't necessarily need to be a deal breaker. There are plenty of innovative storage solutions people can use to make use of every inch of the home, even for some of those tiny London apartments – some of which we found to be as little as just 21 square metres!'
