The Big Benefits to Renting a Tiny Apartment

There is a love affair going on with tiny houses, and the small space living trend just keeps growing. The phenomenon is sweeping across America with shows like Tiny House, Big Living, Tiny House Nation and Tiny House Hunter growing in popularity, and sites like Pinterest housing over 900 boards on tiny houses alone. 

With all the craze in tiny houses we thought it was only fair that we also shine a spotlight on tiny apartments. Here are 6 big benefits that a tiny apartment and tiny house both share, just incase you are interested in jumping into the tiny living movement as a renter.

ECONOMIC FREEDOM
Both tiny houses and tiny apartments share the same mortgage free advantage. Living "tiny" will lower your monthly housing costs versus a traditional home mortgage - saving you money!

FLEXIBILITY TO MOVE
Most tiny houses are built on a trailer giving owners the opportunity to relocate fairly quickly. Renting a tiny apartment also gives you the same no strings attached flexibility, of course once your lease is up. 

SPEND LESS TO DECORATE
Both a tiny apartment and tiny house do not have much space, leaving you the opportunity to get creative with furniture and decorating. Not only does it cost less to decorate a small space, but both a tiny apartment and tiny house let you see just how little you actually need.

EASIER TO KEEP CLEAN
Tiny apartments and tiny houses both take less time to clean. Less space to get dirty means less time you will spend cleaning floors. Leaving you free to do more with your precious time!

SURROUNDED BY ONLY THE THINGS YOU LOVE
Less room for clutter, more opportunity for organization. There simply isn’t the room in a small space so you must reduce the clutter, and only keep the stuff you absolutely love. In both a tiny apartment and tiny house you will have to minimize your belongings and learn how to organize what you keep. 

MORE EFFICIENT
When your home is small it does not cost much to run it. Tiny apartments much like tiny houses do not take much to heat and cool, leaving you with a "tiny" utility bill.
