I hope you’re enjoying your summer. As usual, I feel like it’s just flying by! Retailers are already stocking their shelves up with Halloween decor and while I love the fall and Halloween, I just want to enjoy whatever time we have left of summer. There’s no need to rush the next season, right?? I know there are lots of people out there who are so ready for Halloween and don’t mind seeing all of the decor but personally, I just think it’s too soon.
Anyway, this may be new to some of you, considering I don’t believe I’ve ever shared this on Design Lover’s United, but I have an OBSESSION with tiny homes! Yes, tiny homes. Not only do I find them to be so cute but they’re so practical for those who want to travel…in style. Cause why not?
Tiny homes have become extremely popular over the years and it’s no surprise why! They’re designed with purpose and intention and of course they’re aesthetically pleasing. Many people have become increasingly interested in going tiny (myself included). How cool would it be to live in a miniature sized home??
For some people this may not be appealing at all and I get it. It’s a whole lifestyle change. But I think for many people who go tiny, it’s a way for them to get to experience the world (or the country they live in), travel as frequently as possible, live a minimalistic lifestyle, downsize, and be able to afford their own home.
Living tiny opens up the idea of homeownership, even if it’s not in the most traditional of ways. So many people don’t like the idea of throwing money away on rent yet buying a home (especially in this crazy market), might not be feasible. I’ve seen some tiny homes that can cost $50,000+ but then there are those out there that cost only a couple thousand dollars. It really all depends on what they’ve put into their homes (finishes, materials, etc.) including what resources they’ve used (some people prefer to remain off grid).
The possibilities are ENDLESS when it comes to designing a tiny home! It comes down to the person’s individual needs, who will be living in the tiny home, and of course, budget. I’ve gotten so much inspiration from watching shows on tiny homes and checking out blogs. Just the idea of being able to live a minimalistic lifestyle intrigues me. There’s just something about living life for the experiences, not filling it with stuff. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll get to live in a tiny home!
