The Joys of a Tiny House
Whoever said “Bigger is better” never experienced the joys of tiny house living. Despite the relentless desire many people have to live in McMansions, there’s a growing number of folks who yearn for the simpler life. Tiny houses are an excellent way to live spartan and keep living minimal. Read on to learn just some of the joys of tiny house life!
Life is Simpler
When you simply have little to no room, you can’t have a lot of stuff. Lack of clutter is scientifically proven to make us happier. Just like having a large house can lead to more worrying, housework, and maintenance, more stuff means caring for more inanimate objects when we could otherwise be out enjoying life.
Let’s face it, maintenance is one of the worst aspects of home ownership. The more space you have, the more you have to repair, replace, upgrade, etc. With tiny houses, the lack of space is a huge advantage.
Living in a tiny house means saving a bundle of money. Unless your small abode is made of solid gold, then they usually cost a mere fraction of what typical houses cost. Factor in lower heating, electricity, and water bills, along with needing a smaller plot of land, and you have a growing bank account to show for it.
Less room requires us to be more clever in storing our belongings. Things like vertical storage, hanging plants, built-in lofts, multipurpose furniture, and Murphy beds are all savvy space-saving ideas.
Let’s face it, when your living in a tiny space, everything you need is at your fingertips. You don’t have to haul laundry to the basement, or bins to the attic. A simple pivot in the kitchen gets you from one appliance to another. Easy living at it’s best!
Tiny house living isn’t for everyone, but it’s worth consideration if you're looking for a simpler, more efficient and cost-effective way of life.
