Wasted floor space wastes more than space

A large home easily fills up with unnecessary things, is harder to clean and more expensive to maintain. Remember that an apartment building may have the common facilities that you need for celebrations or other activities.

Savings: Choosing a home that is 10 m2 smaller will save you thousands of euros in purchasing and construction costs. You also save money every month on electricity and heating bills, as well as on your maintenance charges or rent.

Remember this: It may initially be hard to get used to a smaller home, but you can solve space problems by organising efficiently and using the height of a room rather than just the floor space.

Reducing your carbon footprint: Moving to a home that is 10 m2 smaller reduces your carbon footprint by about 6% each year. The savings come from lower construction and maintenance costs.
