Even if you’re just reading the tv guide, you would still be able to tell that tiny homes are on the rise. Homes that utilize all of their space efficiently are becoming a trend that still doesn’t look like it’ll be stopping any time too soon. The thinking is that many people don’t end up really using all the space they think that they need. This turns large homes into things that need to be cleaned and taken care of, but aren’t truly needed. This maintenance and lack of use turns these homes into chores. For many reading this you may be thinking now about how you use your home and find that it is a bit true for yourself. Many of us have formal dining and living rooms that never get any use aside from once or twice a year. This starts to get many thinking about how they could probably live with a smaller house and things wouldn’t be collecting dust constantly.
One of the problems with these tiny home ideas are that things come up, lifestyles change. This is why if you are in the market for a tiny home, make sure that you get yourself a garage with it. The garage is one of the most overlooked portions of the house in many respects, but it becomes all the more important when space in your home is at a premium. When life throws you a curveball and it turns out that your uncle Travis is going to be coming to stay with you for a few months your tiny home might not be able to accommodate an unexpected long term guest. This is where that great big garage comes in handy.
Your garage can quickly and easily turn into pretty much whatever room you need when you need it. The garage door goes down for a few months and a carpet and bed go in, that’s your long term guest room for the near future. If your son just started getting into fitness but doesn’t have the ability to go to the gym, then your garage is your new home gym. One last reason for the larger garage is that the storage space in your house is going to be a little less than most people are blessed with. Having extra garage space when you don’t have a ton of space to store things is pretty important. Keeping your home clean and free of clutter can be tough to do and having a place out of the way to store things is just great and near essential when you’re staying somewhere small long term.
The one thing that can really impact your home’s flexibility and the flexibility of your garage is a garage door repair. Garage door repairs can turn what is one of the most flexible rooms out there into a space that is wasted and goes unused. It is important to keep all of your home in top shape especially if you have a smaller home that is being used efficiently.
