Compact Living is a series of articles dedicated to unconventional ideas and designs of small yet functional living spaces, including tiny houses and apartments, mobile homes, and space-saving furniture for such spaces.
Living in a small space is a growing trend of our days all over the world. There are many reasons for people to move into a compact home. For many citizens, it is a fact of life. Lack of space and high home prices in megalopolises make people live in a limited volume or move to the suburbs. However, many people choose to live in a small home because they advocate, for example, the principle of "living with less". Or they want to own an extremely functional home instead of having unused square meters that they need to look after, clean, and repair. Today, compact living spaces don’t have to be cramped. Smart design and advanced technology can make such homes spacious enough for comfortable living.
