The smallest size of apartment or flat is known as a studio and these are units that have one "living" space which would include a sitting area and sleeping area. The kitchen could be open plan or separate depending on the unit and it would have its own private bathroom and toilet facilities. Studios are ideal for single people or couples who don't want or need much space but prefer to have their own private facilities. Studios are considered an entry-level type of accommodation and they are the cheapest type of apartment. The alternative to a studio would be to rent a room in house/villa and have the use of shared facilities like the bathroom and kitchen and this is a cheaper option for those on a tight budget.
Flats are self-contained residential units occupying part of a larger building. They are usually set out on a single storey of a building and it is for this reason that in some regions (UK, India etc.) they are referred to as "flats". The term "flat" is used in the UK, India and places that use British English. In Europe, North America and places that use American English, the word apartment is preferred. Flats have their own front door, kitchen, toilet and bathroom. In some countries a 1-bedroom apartment may be advertised as a 1bhk or 1bhk flat. The term "bhk" or "BHK" refers to bedroom, hall and kitchen. This means that the unit would have 1 bedroom, a hall (lounge/sitting room) and kitchen. Flats can be found in residential blocks or towers and sometimes even as a part of a house or villa where a whole floor or a section of it, has been separated to have its own entrance etc.
Al Daayen is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Qatar. The north of Al Daayen shares its border with the Al Khor municipality and it is predominantly a rural and agricultural area with few settlements and several farms. The west is bordered with the Umm Salal municipality. The two main roads running through Al Daayen are the Al Shamal Road which passes vertically through the western part of the Al Daayen municipality and the Al Khor Coastal Road which runs through the central and eastern parts linking the cities of Doha and Al Khor.
The south of Al Daayen shares its border with the northern part of the Qatari capital. Due to its proximity with Doha, the southern region has been influenced greatly by the capital and this area has seen rapid development serving as the economic and residential hub of Al Daayen. The city of Lusail in particular is where most of this growth has been concentrated, offering some of the most modern and beautifully constructed homes available for rent or sale, perfect for families and couples alike. It is fast becoming a popular area to find new homes for rent in Qatar with various tastefully furnished compound villas and apartments available to move into immediately.
