Small space tricks go a long way in making a small house feel huge. Most space tricks are simple and don’t require a great deal of time or effort. In most cases, the illusion is cast by a simple rearrangement of storage. Also, one key is to make double use of space. For example, an ottoman that doubles as a storage trunk or the use of walls for vertical storage space.
Smaller homes are gaining in popularity, as people want to lower their carbon footprint. A small home is certainly one way to accomplish this. Another reason for the rise in the popularity in small homes is most certainly cost. Young people can no longer afford the astronomical cost of buying a new home with lost of space, hence the rise in small home popularity.
