Do you feel tired because of a lot of stuff in your home? After the office, when you come home to relax, you walk into a messy space with mail cluttering the countertops, dishes left on the table, and random boxes piled up in a corner.

Did you know, according to some scientific facts, so much clutter can ultimately lead to chronic stress and weaken the immune system? So, you can’t even imagine how many years could have negative effects on your body living with clutter. 

Why don’t you embark on your journey by changing your living in a tiny house?

The tiny home lifestyle is nothing but a simplification of living a more fulfilling life. Living in a tiny home not only brings more fulfillment but also promotes better health for its residents. 

There are 2 major types of tiny homes, one being built on a foundation and the other built on trailers called mobile homes or Park model homes. There are various models and the Classic Park model RVs, Full House Park model RVs, etc., 

So we have come up with an ultimate guide to make your living better with the tiny mobile house. 

Let’s go through it—

To ensure a successful transition, it’s crucial to understand what motivates you to make this change. Take some time to discover your true reasons for getting a tiny home. Once you know your motivations, you can move forward with confidence and start making your dream of a tiny home a reality.

Know your Neighbors 

We know that you’re eager to embrace the tiny home lifestyle and take action, but there are important steps to consider before you can start planning your move. Before getting too excited, it’s essential to check your local laws regarding tiny homes. 

It would be disappointing to have your heart set on a particular location only to find out that they don’t allow tiny structures. So, make sure to research and ensure that your desired location permits tiny homes before proceeding further.

Gradually start your downsizing process

Do you guys know what downsizing is? Ok, let’s take a moment and understand that first.

Downsizing means intentionally reducing stuff and simplifying your life. It involves decluttering, organizing, and letting go of things you don’t need to create a more manageable and stress-free lifestyle.

We recommend that you don’t wait until moving day to start reducing your belongings. Start downsizing now to avoid last-minute rushing. Start by gradually cutting back on one type of item at a time, taking it step by step.

Here are a few examples of things you can downsize:

  • Office Supplies
  • Kitchenware
  • Clothes

Downsizing clothing 

Go through your clothes and identify outfits you don’t wear and clothes that are bulky but rarely used. Separate them into three piles: “yes” for keep, “no” for discard, and “maybe” for further consideration.

And remember one thing, downsizing clothing is not a night thing. 

Take your time and go through your clothes in stages. Just start with the clothes you rarely wear, then move on to deeper parts of your closet and any stored boxes. Once you have a pile of unwanted clothes, make sure to get rid of them.

Donate and Be free

Instead of simply throwing items, try to find them a new home. It can be fulfilling to give them to a friend in need or donate them to a local thrift store. Once you’ve identified the clothes you no longer need, remove them from your living space.

Avoid the temptation to put old clothes in bags and leave them piled up. If you let them sit around, they might find their way back into your belongings. Instead, completely remove the things you no longer use from your space.

Extend storage space

Designing your tiny living space primarily occurs during the build phase. However, even after your tiny home is constructed, you can still make modifications to customize it according to your needs.

Here are a few ways you can maximize space inside your micro-dwelling:

Wall-mounted shelves

Furniture with multi-uses

Go with light color themes

According to some research, the color white has a wonderful ability to make us feel peaceful and relaxed. Additionally, white can give the impression of having more room in a small home. That’s why we recommend using light color schemes to decorate the inside of your house.

Here are a few light color schemes you should consider trying:

  • White shades
  • Pale pastels
  • Light blues or green
