How Big Is The Average House Size Around The World?


Move over America, there’s a new champion in the fight for the biggest houses in the world.

That’s right, the good old U.S.A. does not have the largest average house size, despite its “bigger is better” reputation and seemingly unending supply of McMansions. Australia actually takes the cake, with average houses nearing 2,500 square feet, according to Love Abode.

The interior design site took a look at average house sizes around the world and determined that Australian homes are the largest, while homes in China are the smallest, at just over 500 square feet.

Although they didn’t survey every country in the world, they did provide information on the average home size of the following ten countries, which are presented in order from biggest to smallest:

  1. Australia
  2. United States of America
  3. Canada
  4. Denmark
  5. France
  6. Germany
  7. Spain
  8. Japan
  9. The United Kingdom
  10. China

The infographic also includes Hong Kong, which although technically a part of China, maintains a high degree of autonomy, and has even tinier homes than the average Chinese abode. In fact, exactly 22.6 Hong Kong homes could fit into the average Australian residence.
