Living Tiny Goes Mainstream

While tiny house living has been around for decades, the trend really took off during the Great Recession as consumers looked to control costs while still living in their “dream spaces.” Now, the tiny house movement has become mainstream. Homes under 500 square feet are the latest rage among younger buyers and those looking to downsize as they go into retirement.

The range of products to come out of the tiny house movement has supplied not only the tiny living community, but owners of larger homes who want to incorporate the beneficial features and innovations, including:

  • Compact mechanicals such as on demand water heaters
  • Multi-purpose appliances like convection microwaves and Instapots
  • Pull-out storage that allows for deeper, recessed organization that takes up less floor space

For the past few years, the National Hardware Show has worked to increase retailer knowledge of the Tiny House movement, including hosting the Small Build & Construction Technology Conference during the 2019 Show, which connected tiny living experts with a range of other professionals including builders, retailers, nonprofits and more. NHS exhibitors gained a unique opportunity to show how their products fit well with the growing tiny trend, and valuable insight as to what might be next on the horizon. To see the latest Tiny Living products first hand, consider attending the 2020 National Hardware Show, scheduled for May 5-7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
