Did you know that the average size of houses in the United States is around 2,500 square feet? Since that’s an average, naturally some people feel like that’s too much, and others feel like that’s not enough. If you’re part of the group that feels like that’s too much, it could be that you’ve been looking at your own home and considering some ways that you may be able to thrive with less space.
Many have found that life is a lot more simple when there’s less to take care of around the house. Less dead space means that it’s possible to have much more efficient use of utilities like heating and cooling, which in turn translates into cheaper monthly bills. Fewer rooms mean less furniture, less clutter, and less time spent cleaning your home. With more income and time at your disposal, it may be possible to travel more or to spend more time with friends and family.
