 Accommodation noun
The term ‘accommodation’ (noun) refers to the facilities (usually of a spatial/functional nature) offered by properties and other installations. For example, the accommodation offered by a semi-detached house might be described by an estate agent as comprising:
- Two reception rooms
- Three bedrooms (one with en-suite)
- Family bathrooms
- Off-street, parking space, etc
 To accommodate (verb)
The verb ‘to accommodate’ can mean making allowances for a certain state of affairs that has happened or is expected to happen. So, an architect may accommodate the wide-ranging sizes of hand-made bricks by including a larger than usual element for tolerances in their design.
