As COVID-19 pandemic is writing into our history books, life has changed dramatically - particularly to our time spent at home.
Having to stay home more often than usual due to lockdown, circuit breaker or social distancing reasons, being isolated in our homes means more face time with our flatmates.
In the past, it was pretty often that your room was meant for your good night’s sleep after work and night’s out. Now, your room has probably turned multi-functional into your home office to work from home, a place for you to hang out for leisure activities such as gaming and Netflix, as well as a place for you to exercise.
Talking about flatmates, we now face them 24/7 in the same apartment. Flatmates become an integral part to decide if we live in heaven or hell. Imagine yourself living with someone whom you always need to argue over cleaning duties or about noise levels. Nobody wants that. What about someone whom you can watch Netflix and play games together after working from home? Therefore, it is important to have good or at least decent flatmates to live together with the pandemic.
Living with flatmates in a co-living apartment in this current climate with COVID-19 measures is definitely something that requires adjustments to our lives. While we are used to heading out to the office to work, dining out and all, having to stay at home all day with flatmates is a complete new experience for many of us.

Thanks to the likes of Grab and WeWork, we have come to an age where living with strangers is a concept where it is becoming widely accepted. This contemporary co-living concept isn’t actually new. People have lived in close-knit communities since the dawn of humankind, and the need for community and affiliation is as important today as it was when we were establishing ourselves as a species.
Co-living, a communal housing concept where people live together and share spaces has become something that millennials are happy to adopt for the following reasons:
