My Fascination With Tiny Houses

I would admit, my priorities changed greatly as I get older and this is something I never anticipated during my younger years.  Just like any normal woman in her twenties, I used to dream big and bold. I want a big house, tons of bags and shoes as well as clothes and other small stuff or "abubots" as others may call it.  I used to shop a lot and would always buy every little thing I deemed nice and cute. The same goes when I started to build my own family and had my first home.  I would buy any piece of decor that I would imagine to fit perfectly in my house.

Getting older, it was only recently that I have a shift of interest and opt for a minimalist life style.  If I would go back in time, I think I would love to live in a tiny home. Why not? I find it so challenging to declutter and organize.  This will also allow me to live simply and stress free.  Tiny houses are considered to be low in maintenance and depending on how you design it, is cool and cozy. Living creatively in a small space is both fun and rewarding.

Consider the following designs:







In the above designs, beauty and functionality go hand in hand.  Living in tiny homes does not necessarily mean sacrifice.  As a matter of fact, it could be liberating.  Using innovative designs, tiny homes could actually give you a fuller, simpler and happier life.

The key is on choosing the right design and style to fit your life style.

  5. We live in a small house so I practice minimalist living. It is really hard to maintain a big house and I don't think I can clean it everyday so I'm happy with our small home. :)

  13. Living in a unit makes me appreciate the less is better. You tend to purge and picky when it comes to things you want to accumulate. I love the last photo. It reminded me of what I wanted my unit to look like..industrial.
