Countryside Vs. City Living: Which One Suits You?
It’s never just about the interior of your home, location is a big, significant factor to consider. Whether it’s the city or the countryside, each individual household needs to decide on an appropriate location to stay, and there are a lot of things that can affect your decision, such as work, school, accessibility and even finance.
There are many advantages to living in both the countryside and the city. Many people would love to get away from the busy city life and move to the rural countryside and vice versa. Let’s discuss some of these beneficiaries…
Living in the countryside
One of the most obvious reasons for moving to the countryside is the peaceful nature that surrounds your property. Furthermore, if you are fascinated by the wildlife and the silent greenery, that is the first clue that you should consider moving to the countryside. This is because you are able to endure morning walks, witnessing scenery you simply can’t find in the urban areas, and the agricultural life it boasts.
Another benefit to moving to the countryside is it is financially convenient. In comparison to city living, you can probably get a very nice country home with a large garden and breathtaking views for the price of the average apartment in London, for example. Moving to the countryside allows you to have a more convenient life both financially and mentally.
When living in the city, you are surrounded by constant reminders of social status and other people’s daily lives. If you are an outgoing person, that is probably the right setting for you. However, if you prefer a quiet location that is separated from civilisation, the countryside is perfect for you and your family.
Living in the town/city
In a nutshell, the best part about living in the city is the fact that the whole world is ideally right on your doorstep. Moreover, living in a busy urban area means you are more or less within walking distance from everything – school, work, leisure, shops and any other entertainment or location, so it’s a highly convenient area to live if you are a busy person. City life is also more ideal for those that are looking for big business and career opportunities. In cities, there are job opportunities everywhere, as well as chances to join clubs and find new hobbies.
Another big thing about living in the city is that it teaches you how to socialise and to be around people more or less all of the time. So if a peaceful environment is what you are looking for, then the countryside is probably more ideal for you, as, in cities such as Cambridge and London, there is never an empty street or corner. Furthermore, we aren’t saying you are never going to have some peace and quiet in the city, but more of an opportunity to build up your social life, meet new people and develop new skills.
Finally, the last point we are going to make about living in the city is the wonderful attraction and entertainment options again, right on your doorstep! From museums to libraries, casinos to cinemas, there is so much to do in the city in comparison to the countryside. Therefore, if you consider your household as more outgoing and adventurous, and you regularly enjoy going to these type of entertainment venues, you should definitely consider moving to an urban area.
