Tiny homes and mindful living go hand in hand
Nobody really wants a huge mortgage these days, so tiny homes are beginning to make sense to a lot more people.
Perhaps you are getting tired of the upkeep of a big garden? Or maybe you are thinking of downsizing or retiring?
Small homes have so many lessons to teach anyone who lives in a big home but feels like they’re running out of space.
By re-thinking some basic definitions of space in your home, considering carefully which items should stay and which should go, you will be able to declutter and practice “mindful living”. Less house…more home!

Mindfulness is key to living well
People who live in small spaces live mindfully, and it is perhaps the key to happiness in some ways.
Giving careful consideration to everything that comes into your home is crucial to understanding whether you truly need it. It should be long lasting in both style and quality and be useful, not duplicating something you already own.
Create your space wisely
How space is used in small homes can teach all of us. So many of us are used to traditional living , dining and bedrooms with the kitchen and extra spaces like studies, home entertainment areas and so on.
In small homes though, people are forced to use space in the most creative way. A studio bedroom, living area might double as a study and dining area.
By being creative and flexible about how you use space, you could find that you actually have far more room in your tiny home than you previously thought.
Anybody who has lived in a campervan or a caravan on holiday for any length of time will tell you that you do not need much to inspire you to do things a little differently.
The saying “less is more” can be quite liberating when designing a Tiny Home.
Worth investigating…..I think so!
