New Poll: Bigger or Smaller?

I've been on a mission to declutter and use less space home-wise. I mean I really, really like the idea of less space! I know I'm not the only one, but I'm also aware that not everyone is interested in downsizing.

So, I thought I'd do a poll.

If money were no object and you had full choice of square footage for your dream house, would you move to a BIGGER place than you currently have or a SMALLER one?

I'd love it if you would elaborate about your choice in the comments. It's good to hear both sides of the thought process!

Smaller! Without young adults!

I have to admit I wouldn't mind a little more space. Unless we win the lottery, we won't every leave or add on to our little 2 bedroom, 900 square foot home. But with a baby on the way, we're in the process of reorganizing every room to make the second bedroom work as a nursery only, so I have been fantasizing about having a third bedroom. On the other hand, even if money were no object and we could buy a three bedroom house, I'm not sure I could leave this little house we love so much.

I'd have to go with a tinge bit bigger. I have a little bungalow, and I would love just a bit more space in the kitchen.

Anonymous--Yay! Thanks for your vote. So far it's just me and you, though...

Amanda--Do you think you could eke out more space by rearranging or decluttering in the kitchen? You've probably already done that, but I wanted to mention it.

I, too, live in a bungalow with a tiny kitchen. I would love a bigger kitchen.

I voted for a bigger house, but it wouldn't have to be. I could live happily in a house the same size (with a bigger/better placed kitchen) if we had a BIG heated shop!

Hi Roxanne!
We are expecting our first in May. I've thought about you because this baby will probably be our one and only and we're having a boy! I'm very happy. We've been waiting for this for a long time!

Thanks for keeping up so well with me and our little house and blogs over the last year or so, even when I haven't been writing very much at all. It's so nice to "meet" such a dear and sweet blogging-world person! You are very kind to show such interest in our happy news!

Warm wishes,
Emily

I would keep the same amount of space, but I would want a different layout.

I live in a 500-600 sq' suite with my boyfriend and our cat. Because of the door locations it's been difficult to figure out how to create an office area never mind a kitchen table.

Dominique--You are my new hero!

Do you have pics? I would love to see how you've managed to make the square footage and the odd layout work for you.

Leave a link if you have a post about it!

As far as finding an office area, my suggestion is to think vertical.
