5 features to future-proof your home are what we call SMALL. We discussed feature #1 – S for smart in our last post.
Feature #2 is M for Millennial. It is a house feature that adapts to future living, responding to the 21st-century homeowner’s challenges.
Some challenges that we face in this 21st century are health challenges, lack of affordable housing, high cost of materials and construction, lack of quality housing, etc.
How do we overcome those challenges in the way we build our homes?
Here are 3 elements we can incorporate into Millennial Future Home features:
1. Use natural materials to create a healthy and toxin-free home. We spend on average 16 hours a day inside our home. Having a toxin-free environment in our home contributes to our lifelong well-being.
2. Build a compact footprint home to overcome the high cost of land and construction. A compact home doesn’t have to be cramped and uninspiring. It is the quality of the design and not the quantity of area that makes a great home.
3. Create an indoor/outdoor space in your home to enhance your connection to nature, light and fresh air to promote health and wellness living. Indoor/outdoor space brings nature into your home and expands the feel of your home.
Does your home have those features above? How adaptable is your home for a 21st-century living?
