Research into house sizes across the world has shown that in 2009 Australians had the largest floor area per person and the largest increase in house sizes.

According to the research, gathered by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and commissioned by Commsec, the average floor area of new homes in Australia hit a record 214.6 square metres in the last financial year. The average floor area of new free-standing houses was also at a record high of 245.3 square metres, up 4.4 per cent over the past five years.
