Downsizing and micro-living are become more trendy as people choose to simplify their lives by living with less and living in smaller spaces. After all, there are a number of benefits to living in a smaller home, like less cleaning, reduced running costs, and of course the affordable price tag. Smaller spaces can be a practical option over mansion-style living; it means less furniture and a certain feeling of cosiness and homeliness.
While it may have been your choice to live in a small townhouse or apartment, creating the feeling of space is a very high priority for many. Having a small home is one thing but living in a pokey space that feels cramped and claustrophobic is another thing entirely.
