Indeed, size matters, and for some a smaller home is becoming a preferred choice.
Here are some advantages to living small:
1. Room for creativity
Having a smaller space allows you to exercise your creative touch when it comes to organizing your furniture and other belongings. This is where all those nifty storage ideas come in handy because you can’t simply dump anything and everything given your limited space. There’s also no reason to worry if you’re not that creative since there are tons of suggestions online, as well as the availability of inventive storage containers and multi-purpose furniture designed for small spaces.
2. Save money
One of the best perks of having a smaller living space is you'll save money. For starters, you’ll have smaller bills to take care of, you won’t have the need to buy unnecessary stuff, and of course smaller pieces of furniture cost less than bigger items.
And an even better upside to this is how you can allocate the money you’ve saved for other types of expenses such as travel, education, retirement, and so on.
3. Joys of simple living
Once you get used to living within the confines of a smaller home, you’ll discover the joys of simple living. This will help you prioritize as opposed to having to deal with useless clutter. In addition, you’ll also have less negative impact on the environment.
4. Cleaning made easier
Cleaning and other chores involved in the upkeep of your home can be quite tedious if you have a big space to maintain. And it follows that if you have a smaller living space, you’ll have fewer areas to clean up as well.
