In the hustle and bustle of the city, even coastal island life can seem crowded. Savvy Canadians are always looking for new ways to save space, their wallets, and the environment. Advances in technology and knowledge has taught us that bigger is not always better. One great example of this is house size; having a bigger home is more costly and takes up more space in an already cramped metropolis. Here are three ways that living in a smaller home is a smart choice for you and your family:
A smaller home will save you money.
And we don’t mean that you’ll just save on the mortgage. Smaller homes are cheaper to heat, cool, and power in general; meaning that you will save on that dreaded energy bill every month. On top of that, much of that money spent on maintaining and customizing a larger home stays in your pocket. You want to repaint? Go ahead! With a small home you won’t have to fork out three months of savings in order to paint a huge space.
A smaller home lessens your environmental impact.
From start to finish, small homes are gentler on the environment. This is because it requires less resources to build and maintain. Your carbon output is automatically lessened when you take up less space and your energy is used more efficiently. And that benefits all of us.
