RentCafe, a nationwide apartment search website and a part of Yardi, analyzed apartment sizes in the largest U.S. cities to reveal the places with the biggest and smallest apartments, as well as the locations where apartment sizes have grown the most over the past decade.

Apartments in Lexington saw a significant increase over the past decade, with rentals increasing 117 square feet, on average.  Louisville apartments saw 133 square feet increase, on average and were 10th in the nation in overall apartment size at 1,017 square feet.

New single-family rentals that were built in Lexington in the last 10 years offer the 13th largest living space across the country, averaging 1,414 square feet.  In other Kentucky cities, Louisville apartments average 783 square feet, Covington 921 square feet, and Richmond 994 square feet — all with significant increases in their average apartment size in the past decade.
