5 MORE REASONS TO THINK SMALL

I recently came across this headline while browsing through a magazine: 

‘THINK BIG’

My first thought was – “Oh no” – they’ve taken a similar message & have turned it around to say the exact opposite.

But then I read the smaller print, which said:

‘THESE STYLISH, ROOM-EXPANDING STRATEGIES WILL HAVE YOU LIVING LARGE IN SMALL SPACES’

Yes!

I didn’t need to read any further.

You see, I’ve already come up with my own reasons why ‘Thinking Small’ can help you to ‘Live Large’.

Here they are:

 

1 – Smaller homes are more affordable and require less of everything.

Less maintenance. Less expense.

Need to paint the house top to bottom, or replace the carpet?  What about replacing the windows, in lieu of more energy efficient options?

Less square footage also means lower utility bills. You will even need less furniture!

And because you will need LESS of everything, you can spend MORE on higher quality, and still come out ahead.

Meaning you won’t have to break the budget to achieve an amazing result!

 

2 – Smaller homes are ideal for Custom design.

Yes, it may cost more, but remember you will ultimately need less of everything, so why not?

This is an opportunity for you to get super organized, so use it to your advantage.

Are you looking for an efficient, minimalist kitchen? Do you need better storage options overall?

By reducing the scale of your dream kitchen, you can reduce the total costs, and instead think bigger in terms of the overall design. You can re-purpose those funds into higher end cabinetry, quality appliances, and clever storage options.

A skilled craftsman can create customized storage that perfectly fits your needs, plus the size and the layout of your home. This includes kitchen cabinetry, and anything else you can think of.

Furnishings can also be customized.

The ideal sofa will not only be perfectly scaled to the size of the room, but it will also be scaled to fit you.  For the ultimate in comfort, luxury and organization, this is the way to go.

In a smaller home, the occasional splurge becomes more affordable. When properly orchestrated, small homes can live large!

 

3 – Smaller homes let you be more Creative.

The idea here, is to look outside the box.
