Check out these hot new trends in luxury tiny homes. Not only are they space-saving but they are beautiful too!
Some people believe that bigger is better when it comes to their home, but not everyone. There’s a tiny house revolution taking place in the housing market, highlighting that big is not always best. After all, what makes a home?
A bigger house often just means more expense, higher running costs, and more space you’ll need to maintain. It doesn’t mean that you’ll be any happier. In a society focused on consumerism and rising household debt, a custom-built tiny home could be key to getting back to what’s important by encouraging people to cut back, clear out clutter, and only pay for the space they need. After all, what these tiny homes lack in size, they make up for in charm and luxury.
The Tiny Home Movement
The tiny house movement is growing rapidly, with around 10,000 tiny houses in North America alone and 700 new tiny homes built each year. People are increasingly choosing to downsize to a tiny home to focus on living with less as they realign their budget and priorities for flexibility and luxury comforts that come with building a little custom home.
One of the many reasons people opt to purchase a tiny home is sustainability, affordability, and transportability. Homeowners are increasingly translating it to the concept of living in a luxurious studio apartment combined with the freedom of owning a free-standing home that they can move to a different location.
Traditional Craftsmanship Creates Luxury Living
In today’s world of mass production, where everything looks like it came off the same production line, this new trend is breaking the rules with its demand for master craftsmanship. Attention to design and detailed architectural specifications require immense precision to ensure these tiny homes conform with housing regulations.
A tiny house doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality, comfort, or even luxury. Your tiny house can consist of porcelain bathtubs, granite countertops, top-quality kitchen appliances, beautiful interior designs, and custom furniture. Tiny homes are designed to maximize all available space while using clever storage and space-saving tricks to create the illusion of space.
Many people love the idea of living in a tiny home in theory, but the reality is they don’t want to restrict their overall living space to just 500 square feet. However, many prosperous property buyers are investing in tiny homes for themselves and have found profitable uses for these tiny dwellings, from studios, home offices, and guest houses to a Grandparent suite, luxury cabin getaway, or rental property.
As you may expect, it’s not a trend to have bypassed many celebrities. In fact, several stars have shunned the traditional Hollywood mansion for a tiny home. Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence has owned a tiny home in Santa Monica and Twilight star Robert Pattison owns a modest 1,940-square home in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, before he married Emily Blunt, The Office star John Krasinksi had a 1,279 square foot home to be proud of.
The growing popularity of tiny homes just shows that size isn’t everything when it comes to our homes. Comfortable and luxurious living can still be achieved even in the smallest places. After all, it’s the people that make a home, not how many rooms it has or how much space it takes up.
