THE ART (AND TREND) OF LIVING SMALL

We at Home Rejuvenation love the idea of living large in small spaces: the space constraint restricts one from accumulating more stuff at home and maximizes the functionality of what we can only make do with. It also forces the occupant to get more creative on the usage and planning of whatever space is available.

While most Singaporeans are struggling with the concept of 'Micky Mouse apartments' (with floor area of no more than 500 sq ft), we'd like to be more positive about the whole thing - small homes will be the way of living in the near future. In a trend tailing that in neighboring Hong Kong, where mini-sized houses are already very common, it's only a matter of when the general public here will accept the fact that our homes will be small 20 years down the road.

And for those who are still grumbling, at least you can find consolation with examples like this. No?
