With an increasing demand for housing in the UK and strict planning restrictions, developers are attempting to fit as much real estate as possible within smaller and smaller areas.
This means that most new builds are half the size of the homes being constructed at the start of the 20th century.

Storage World has looked at this trend, determined the main pros and cons of smaller house living and even looked around the world for extreme examples of homes which push the limits of square footage.
Read on to find out whether you’re cut out to thrive in this new era of space-efficient living.
