Due to a space and housing shortage, new homes in Europe are being built much smaller whilst in the USA a ‘tiny home movement’ is much more of a lifestyle choice. As population density increases in cities globally over the coming decade, we see a trade-off between space and location, where an increasing amount of people are prepared to scrimp on space to live in more convenient, accessible places.

There are lots of reports out there on smaller homes from an architectural perspective, or that focus on luxurious couples living, but what are the issues for real families when living in smaller spaces? Cramped Living 2019, focuses on the detail of small living. Outlining the challenges families face when living in smaller homes, to identify opportunities for brands to tap into emerging needs and ultimately help homeowners live well within small, shared spaces.

This report outlines the impact of living in small homes:

  1. How we decorate – the kind of ornamentation we apply to our homes. What goes on the limited wall space we have available, what heirlooms do we display or store?
  2. How family products sit together in one space – and what that means for the way they are designed or purchased
  3. How householders are dealing with ‘transitional items’ like un-ironed laundry
