Moving out from the office, moving into the Tiny House: InstaHouse and its soaring popularity
The hiking popularity of tiny house architecture has long booted out the mainstay choice office or room. And for those who are out of the loop of tiny house Singapore, a tiny house typically refers to a small container house that may serve as an extension to your main house. It functions on few resources, and is a cost-effective solution for a mini-office or mini-getaway.
Tiny house design: Convenient, easy, and cost-effective
Subsumed under the global movement towards minimalism, a tiny house often appears as a room which is stripped down to its bare essentials. Considerably so, it also takes up small backyard space—be it for the office or for the home.
As a result, the cost-effective and spatially-prudent tiny house design is rather appealing to people who want an extra space or room, but find it hard-pressed on their wallets and minds to add-on any physical ones in their homes. After all, navigating land and building laws can also be a severe headache for us all.
Conversely, for tiny house Singapore, it’s as simple as calling a company and getting them to deliver and set it up for you on the same day. Naturally, then, it follows that more and more people are opting for tiny house architecture, given that it is simple, straightforward, and necessitates that your wallet doesn’t have to take a beating to book a quiet room.
Another curiosity then follows: What then, are these rooms used for?
1) A home away from home—Tiny house Singapore
We’re 3-4 years into the pandemic and the saddening fact still remains: Travelling is troublesome, hard, and expensive. It always has been, of course, but with increased border checks, quarantine orders, the possibility of contracting COVID-19 and a laundry list of things to do for PCR testing and the like.
In yearning to get away from the hectic pace of day-to-day living in Singapore, many people have started to opt for staycations. This can mean booking hotel rooms or going over to someone else’s house to stay. While these are viable options, however, none quite compare to the ease of the tiny house design, which can be set up in the comfort of your own home and allow you to toggle back-and-forth between your main house and the container-like house. This puts suitcases and luggages and all the troublesome, mandatory vacationing stuff out of the way. Now, you only need to pop on over to do whatever you want.
2) Partying it up in a fuss-free manner: The advantages of tiny houses
Another thing that may niggle at us is the fact that every time we need to have a birthday celebration, the best case-scenario in Singapore’s five-person limit is to opt for someone’s home. This often entails long hours of preparation, putting the precious porcelain out of the way, and clearing away the mess that you may be embarrassed to let loose for others to see.
Such problems are mitigated with tiny houses, and you are free to stage parties in the tiny house! In other words, tiny house Singapore gets rid of the need to rearrange your main house and set up new things. Your room is yours as you see fit, and designing and setting it up is part of the autonomy that comes with it.
3) Work, work, work
If you’re not a fan of the house being geared for partying or holidaying purposes, then you may be part of the larger crowd of Singaporeans who simply want some peace and quiet when doing your work. Indeed, with work-from-home being the default mode for a while now, work can get unexpectedly and unimaginably noisy. Like many other Singaporeans, my mornings are often chock-full with the hammering, drilling, and knocking of construction. If not that, then it’s the cars zooming past on the freeway and highway, which can be rather disruptive to my workflow as well. Among these, though, the most annoying factor is when other family members are also working-from-home, and their talking just bounces off the walls and reverberates throughout the rooms. Some may even just barge into your highly formal Zoom meeting.
Such annoyances, in turn, can make for a frustrating and deeply annoying experience. But with tiny house architecture, the acoustics are conducive to solo working with peace and solitude. Since you can also choose to outfit your Tiny House with whatever you want, opting to include increased soundproofing and curtains can block out auditory and visual distractions, respectively.
