good evening were about to buy a home in a lakeside and it has 2 floors on the ground floor we have living kitchen 1 toilet+bathroom and 2 bedroom + a small hall, on the first floor we only got one bedroom a toilet and a sizeable terrace with a table. the question is the following:

Im buying 2kg carbon dioxide + 2 foams and 1 2l abf foam

the 2 normal foams are 3l size ok?im just wondering if its better a 6l,3l look compact and cute but not that sure if theyre enough 1 per floor.

Many thanks.

Assuming this is a private house and not used as commercial sleeping accommodation then you can have whatever you want.

A suitable extinguisher in the kitchen and on each main landing would be in line with the old guidance for private homes - instead of a cluttering of types you could just use 1.4L water mist https://www.safelincs.co.uk/1-litre-water-mist-fire-extinguisher-ultrafire/ or if you want something you can maintain yourself a 2 litre of either of these:
