As cities grow and the price of housing goes only higher, more of us are finding ourselves in smaller homes. In many ways, compact homes can be far better options than larger ones. They tend to be less wasteful as far as energy is concerned, require less time to clean, and are often easier to keep maintained as well. But the thing with a compact space is that it’s of course small, and small isn’t to everyone’s taste.
Even for those of us who do prefer it, a poorly designed small space can be an unpleasant place to be. That’s why it’s crucial to be cognizant of the best ways to make small spaces feel cozy rather than cramped. With the right design choices, you can even make a small space feel bigger than it actually is.
