Life in a Narrow Home

With house prices on the rise all over the world, more and more designers are playing with small spaces in order to create functional family homes for an affordable price. This has been helped greatly by the growing trend of minimalist interior design. Doing more with less space has become an important mantra for home designers, property developers and budding homeowners, and it’s easy to see why when you take a look at narrow homes.

There are some common misconceptions about narrow houses. First of all, it is usually possible to completely stretch out your arms without touching either wall. Narrow homes aren’t narrow enough to make you feel completely confined, although there are some properties that really play on the narrow aspect and give you barely any space to stretch. There’s also the idea that a narrow home is small and cramped. Although it’s true in some regard, it’s important to remember that although the house lacks width, it makes up for it in depth. Narrow homes can be extremely long which ultimately makes up for any perceived lack of space. They usually have multiple floors as well to add to this, yet still retaining a slim profile.

So what exactly is life like in a narrow home? We’ve put together some ideas that could convince you to trade in your existing home for a narrow one.

It can be a lot cheaper to build

Specialist narrow lot builders will fully understand build and block constraints, giving them the professional experience they need to make the most of your budget and space. If you want to build a home, then building a narrow home is perhaps going to be the best value for your money due to how cost-effective it is. You utilise a lot less space overall and you learn to compact things into smaller areas. You make do with what you have without any regret for things you don’t have, and the builders understand how to efficiently use all the space you have.

You keep track of things more easily

Living in a narrow home typically means that you have a lot less storage space for your personal items. This means you carry less with you when you move around and you know where everything is. The thing with having a large home is that you have the luxury of space. You’ll store more things, you’ll keep more junk and you’ll be less inclined to throw trash away. With a narrow home, you don’t get that luxury and you’ll learn to throw away items that you don’t want and keep your home decluttered.

Less stressful living

Let’s be honest, no one likes cleaning the home because it takes so much time. Yet it’s something we’re forced to do because we have to worry about health hazards and problems such as insect or rodent infestations. In contrast, owning a narrow home is actually a lot less stress due to how easy it is to clean, tidy and ultimately live in. All of your belongings are within easy reach, you don’t need to clean as many surfaces and it’s a simple lifestyle that everyone can appreciate.
