“The tiny-house movement is an architectural and social movement that advocates living simply in small homes…there is no set definition as to what constitutes a tiny house. However, a residential structure under 500 square feet (46 square metres) is generally considered a tiny home” [source]

For many years it’s been believed that bigger is better when it comes to houses. People usually want bigger homes with more space, more rooms, higher ceilings, and more features.

But, recently, there’s been a push towards living in smaller spaces and the tiny house movement has been born. They’re popular with single people or couples who want to live life a bit more simply. Of course, they’re also far cheaper than traditional homes and appeal to many for this reason.

Whilst tiny homes are often impressive, they’re generally so small it’s hard to believe anyone could comfortably live in them for an extended period of time. However, they do have some very impressive features when it comes to space saving, storage and making the most of the space that’s available.

Some tiny homes are masterpieces at fitting everything someone could need for modern day life into incredibly small spaces. Most tiny homes have bathrooms, fridges, freezers, ovens and everything you could need for daily living. Often mezzanine levels are used to take advantage of height and many parts of the home will be able to be folded away when not in use.

Some tiny homes are even moveable and can be moved to different locations as the owners want. Perfect if you take a dislike to your neighbours!

Whilst we wouldn’t be keen on moving in a tiny home permanently, we can definitely appreciate their small but perfect forms and love the ingenuity that’s used in their design.

Could you see yourself living in a tiny home?
