Tiny homes are they a fad? A flash in the pan or something that will stick around for a while. More and more people know what a tiny house is and they are growing in popularity. The options available are also growing.
Some people want to live a more minimilistic lifestyle and do not want the expense of buying a large home. Instead they focus on the necessities and what's important to them. But this does not mean that tiny homes can't be fancy. Some designers such as Matt Impola have reimagined what it is to have a tiny house and focus on putting the finer things into tiny homes such as chandeliers and wood beams. Since tiny houses are cheaper you can afford to be more extravagant with some of the furnishings. Take a look at an article by Rebecca Deczynski the Lifestyle Editor at Domino for more information on Matt Impola.
Other people are putting tiny homes in their back yards as another way of having their own space. This has become even more of an allure since more people have been working at home during COVID. These homes can be made to match the style of the main home or look vastly different such as a Minka, a traditional Japanese house or a Georgian style home. These homes have can have electricity, internet access, running water, whatever else you want.
