Now Trending: Micro Apartments in Santa Monica

Micro homes, both compact and energy efficient, are becoming more and more popular and not just in metropolitan cities.  Between the 1970’s until the 2010’s, studies show that the average size of an American home more than doubled. Yet in recent years, however, many Americans have decided to redefine the American Dream, choosing focus on flexibility, financial freedom, and their quality of life over the quantity of space inside of their home.

Some European and Asian cities have been designing, building, modifying and living in very small spaces, so why has this trend only recently caught on in the States?

You would be hard pressed to find someone that would argue against the fact that it has caught on in the States largely due to innovative interior and architectural design, driven by necessity; as the population soars,so too has the need for more housing.

If freeing yourself of a complicated lifestyle that evolves around a cluster of material possessions as well as choosing quality over quantity intrigues you, take a look at just 3 of the micro apartments in Santa Monica for rent below. Each of these destinations are located mere steps away from dining, shopping and entertainment.
