Downsizing is seeing a rise and there’s a greater market for compact housing. More and more families are choosing to leave the hustle and bustle of city life in exchange for a quieter country home.
Often rural living is more economical than maintaining a home in the city. By selling a high priced home in the city, a family can often realize a nice nest egg.
Often the sale of a city home will provide enough income for a couple to purchase a rural home as well as capital for a business venture.
Compact Living – A Popular Choice
For many years bigger seemed the better choice, but now that thinking is changing. Gone are the days of the long sleek Cadillac and the belief that a large home is what every family needs.
Whether for economic or environmental reasons, many couples are choosing smaller compact homes, which makes storage space vital.
Downsizing is simply a logical process when the children have left home. For seniors on a lower income, it is financially valuable to downsize. Students and first-time buyers are also candidates for smaller homes.
Making Good Use of a Small Space
Use the space under the bed for storage: There is generally a treasure trove of unused space under the bed. It’s the ideal place to use for storage. Drawers or large plastic containers will easily slide in and out and provide additional space for clothing, blankets, books, or toys.
Invest in a loft bed: Loft beds utilize space that you may not even know you have. Most come with a variety of creative storage areas.
Bedroom desk or office space: Some people have a desk area in their bedroom, and keeping it as compact as possible is essential. If you have a desk, make sure it has drawers; you always want to maximize every square inch.
Use space saver shelving in the closet: The closet can be one of your most underutilized areas of the bedroom. Often clothes are hung there, and shoes or toys are tossed onto the floor. There is a wealth of space that goes unused. Portable space-saving shelves can easily be added to a closet.
Use the back of your door for clothing hooks or bags: Handy laundry or shoe bags are designed to fit on a bedroom or bathroom door and can help to cinch up extra floor space in the room. There are also many types of clothes hooks designed for the door, which can help to keep your housecoat or jacket handily within arms reach.
