Flat, or flatness, describes an object or condition that is very smooth or level.

In Great Britain, Ireland and Australia, as well as in English-speaking Commonwealth countries such as India, a "flat" means an apartment.

In New Zealand it can mean an apartment, especially when applied to public housing, but it more usually means a house of any type shared between unrelated adults, in a flatmate arrangement.
