With the growing population of cities, more city dwellers are having to live in cramped houses with no outdoor spaces. In my opinion, this trend brings about both positive and negative aspects, however, I believe its advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
On the one hand, there is no denying the fact that when living in a tiny home without big windows and sufficient green space nearby, residents will be prone to some negative feelings. This is due to the fact that residents do not have any space for recreational activities, such as watering flowers or playing with their pets, after dealing with a heavy workload or stressful day. They therefore may feel exasperated within their apartments, and this can lead to a number of mental health problems such as depression.
However, although living in tiny houses possesses some downsides, the potential benefits are also numerous. The initial advantage is that living in a small house prevents frivolous spending on items that are only used to fill a space rather than to fulfil a function, helping people to be more disciplined with money. Along with buying less stuff because they have no room for it, they will also avoid wasting time on maintaining all that stuff. Small houses, moreover, encourage family bonding, creating an environment where family members can get organized and make the home a happy place. In comparison to larger accommodation, where there are separate rooms for each member, small homes
offer a common living space for the whole family, which will provide more opportunities for the family to talk and share stories and feelings.
In conclusion, although small houses can be possibly detrimental to the occupant’s feelings, I still believe that living in limited space seems to be more beneficial to city dwellers when it comes to good financial management and family bonding.
