So before you look at upgrading your home size, consider what we have to share about space. You may be surprised by the perks of having a small space. 

The truth about mobile home space

As you’ll see in the following paragraphs, having a lot of space isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. Whether you’re a family or a couple or a single, small spaces can provide their own sense of wonder and magic. 

There’s no reason to pine away after something bigger as it doesn’t necessarily equate to being better. Sometimes you have to look at your surroundings via a fresh set of lenses to appreciate the perks. 

Limits can be freeing

In the grand scheme of life, having limited space can be freeing. It means surrounding yourself with only the items that are valuable to you. And this brings us to our next perk which will further support our point here.

Cutting the clutter

With a small space, you’re forced to cut the clutter. This provides freedom to move around in your house without the burden of being bogged down with worldly possessions. When it comes to clutter, you’ll come to a breaking point faster in a small house than you would in a bigger house. Learning to declutter and downsize can become an art form for the small home dweller.

Clever use of space

In the event that you’re gung ho to stay in your small space, please understand that you don’t have to succumb to feeling cramped. There are clever ways to maximize the space in your mobile home

As a matter of fact, you can integrate interior design that serves both a utilitarian and aesthetic purpose for your mobile home, keeping it beautiful and low-clutter at the same time.

For example, having a storage basket on the inside of the cabinet door under your sink can provide extra space for cleaning supplies. Plus they’re out of sight rather than proving an eyesore. You can bring in a beautiful ottoman to serve as an extra seat and storage box for belongings. This is a great addition to any living room.

The options for clever uses of space are endless. With a little creative thinking and the help of the world wide web, you’ll be smiling at your own clever hacks for small spaces.

How much time do you spend in your home?

To some, most of their time is spent at work, away from home. Home is a haven — an oasis at the end of the day, throughout the night, in the morning, and through the weekends.

Is it even worth it to you to upgrade your home to larger-sized version? Perhaps your better off cultivating it into your perfect little getaway instead. An when you consider the cost of a possible upgrade, that takes us straight to our next point.

A bigger home requires more from you

This one here is our last and biggest point. And it’s the idea that a bigger home would mean a greater investment of resources — both money and time. 

Stacks of cash

Do you really want to trade your time and money for more space? With a small space, you’re looking at less cleaning, less honey-dos, and more time seeking out adventure within and without your oasis. 

Good things can come in small packages!

All that glitters is not gold. The same applies to large homes. Your mobile home may be just the space you need to find freedom to chase your dreams. So why not consider the pros and cons before you take on the big changes that come with moving to a bigger home! 

Regardless of what you do, we hope you find joy wherever you find yourself. At the end of the day, home is what you make of it.
