Why consider a small space rather than the big ones?

With everything becoming expensive nowadays, it is very important to become more resourceful, efficient, and practical, especially with your spending attitude. We don’t want to end up being tied up in debts just to keep with our wants over our needs. A shelter (house, studio, apartment, etc.), for example, is considered as a need for a person to survive. It’s only fair that we spend a chunk of our budget on it but it doesn’t mean we should get spaces that are beyond our budget capability. There are lots of available "small" spaces that are within our budget and can still sustain our need for shelter. We only have to be creative in maximising these spaces. Discover the gems hidden in living in small spaces.

Here are some of the benefits of having a small space and why you should consider getting one. Read on and try to weigh the pros and cons you can think of as soon as you are done reading this article.

Easy to organise

When you have limited space, you tend to allocate those spaces to things that are helpful and valuable to you. You will no longer have the tendency to get “extra stuff” that you really don’t need. This limitation may result in decluttering and organisation. Plus, this will help you save a lot of money from buying unnecessary things. This can also help promote the minimalist type of living which is being a craze right now due to the positive effect of owning less.

Decorating them needs not to be expensive

Small apartments or houses can also help you a lot in managing your budget wisely. Why? Because once you are living in a small apartment, you will not be needing huge sizes and a massive amount of furniture and decorations to make your space look inviting and comfortable. Small spaces only require simple and small furniture and decors for it to look cozy and comfy. You no longer need to buy large couches or dining table since simple and small designs already work with the small space you have. Redecorating them can be easy, too, since you only have a small space to work on and don’t need that much of a budget to do so.

Hassle-free cleaning

This must be the top benefit of why we are choosing a small apartment rather than the big ones. Small apartments are much easier to clean, making maintenance much more manageable, especially if you are a busy person and don’t have the time to clean the house every other day. A small space is much advisable. I bet no one who would like to be burdened by maintaining the house clean, especially if the house is too big. It's just really difficult to keep it organised and tidy. If you have a big house to maintain, you will get real tired just by looking at the rooms you need to clean. It can really be stressful! I'm pretty sure you will get to think about why do you need a big house when you can actually manage to live in a smaller one.

Easy to keep up financially

If you have a small space, expect that only a few appliances, electronics, and furniture can fit in. We can't deny the fact that utility bills can add much to our expenses. Thus, if you have a smaller space, you will enjoy the small amount of bills/fees you need to pay. The size of a residence is almost tantamount to the amount of electricity consumption, thus, having a small apartment means a smaller electric bill. Also, a smaller apartment requires cheaper lease/rent. What a way to save money and manage your budget effectively?

Personalising it is more feasible

Since you have a small space to decorate, it will be easier for you to put on pieces that reflect your personality. I bet most of the people who visit your place would love to have a sense of being welcomed or being familiar with the house they come in. Let’s say you’re a boho-chic type of person, your home will, of course, reflect a bohemian-inspired piece that really suits your personality.

But of course, if you are someone who has a growing number of members in the family or someone who cannot help but buy new stuff, expect an increasing number of things cramming up in your small apartment. Now, the problem is, how are you going to manage to live in a small space? Well, do not fret. There's a reason why self-storage companies exist --- to help you manage the limited space you have. If you think renting a storage unit to help you house your things will be an additional cost, think again!
