One of the main things we learned during Covid-19 pandemic is how to live and work in a confined space. Those who were lucky to still have an opportunity to work from home, were presented with challenges of setting up home office. This is way too relevant for big city residents, where average apartment square footage is shrinking every year. Therefore, maximizing your living space to make it more efficient and multifunctional is a must!
Living in small spaces has been a growing trend in American housing markets. From micro-loft apartments to tiny homes, small spaces offer a streamlined, minimalist approach along with the added benefit of a much smaller carbon footprint. While the micro-lifestyle might seem at odds with the American tradition of big homes and wide-open spaces, it is gaining in popularity.
If you’re a city dweller, there’s a point when you reach a crossroads in your relationship with your (probably tiny) apartment, and that point comes when tiny humans are added to the equation. The question then becomes: Try to make it work in the place that’s suited you well up to that point, or cut and run for wider horizons—and more space?
