Imagine living in an about 25 meters square house, whether alone, with a lover, or with a family. If you do not have it, you may have a hard time to imagine it! Most people are kind of scared of tiny homes. When we think of a small house we always see a lot of mess around. We imagine uncomfortable situations and see ourselves struggling to fit things inside of it.
Yet, a tiny home has often proved to be the ‘stairway’ to one’s own personal heaven. The reasons for that are endless, and every day and more people are giving up their big houses, and moving into smaller ones.
If you have been thinking about getting a tiny home, but you are still unsure whether it will be worth it, you should keep reading this article. We have pointed out the top five ways how a tiny home can bring happiness to you, and your family.
Affordable to get and to keep
The ‘invention’ of 21st century tiny homes has enabled more and more people to own their own places. While the average regular house may be unbearable for you to buy, a tiny house will cost you much less mainly because they occupy less space and require less materials, furniture and work to be completed.
In addition, a tiny house is also affordable to keep. A smaller area means less energy is needed for heating during the winter, or cooling down during the summer, and less vacuuming. And the best part about it, you will soon after stop buying unnecessary stuff, since you know that you do not have enough space to store it.
You have everything you need in your reach
A tiny home means - nothing is too far away from you. Most of the time, you just can stretch out your arm and grab whatever you need. Cooking is done way faster as you do not have to walk from one side of the kitchen to the other, to get one single spoon. A single tower fan can be enough to keep the whole house cool during the summer. You have everything right where you need it, as tiny homes are projected to fit all the things you need is a super small area.
Moreover, you will also have your family members in your sight. You can most of the time see what your children are up to. You won’t be scared of leaving a baby or a toddler alone, as you can always just turn around and see if your precious is asleep or not.
It saves you a lot of time
It doesn’t only save your time when you cook, but also when you clean. While in a regular house, you would maybe need at least a full weekend to clean every spot, a tiny home can be cleaned within a few hours.
Additionally, it will be very easy to keep it clean, since when you start living in a tiny home you will automatically stop buying things that you do not need, and think twice before getting anything. And the less stuff you have, the less cleaning your house will require.
It is environmentally friendly
A tiny house is not only pocket friendly but also environmental friendly. Having a tiny house means getting rid of the things you do not need, and stop buying unnecessary things, that serve you only for a short time, or not at all. And the less things you have, the less trash you will make. You will be buying fewer clothes, rugs, furniture, and other stuff as you would in a big house.
You and your children will spend more time outside
Nowadays, children are spending less and less time outside. With the newest games, and gadgets, from toddlers to teenagers just want to shut the door of their room and get inside a game or a movie. But with a tiny house, they will need their own space and they will find it outside the house. And so will you.
We all know how important it is for children to spend time outside closed space, and it is just as important for you to spend time outside with yourself as for them. With a tiny house, you will find yourself sitting outside on a beach chair and meditating, looking at your children running around, more often than you would ever believe.
