A sprawling mansion isn’t necessarily the fastest route to a blissful life – in fact, check out these reasons why you may be happier looking for townhouses to rent in Dubai…
It’s easier to maintain.
Anyone who has experienced posh villas for rent in Dubai knows the amount of time, energy, and effort to maintain it. All things being equal, a smaller home requires less of your time, energy, and effort to accomplish that task.
Townhouses are less expensive to rent and less expensive to keep (insurance, ooling, electricity, etc.).
As is the case with all property, the more space you have, the more a place ‘owns’ us. And the more stuff we own, the more mental energy is held hostage by them. Rent small and free your mind.
Less environmental impact.
A townhouse requires less resources to build and less resources to maintain. And that benefits all of us.
Many of the benefits above (less cleaning, less maintaining, mental freedom) result in the freeing up of our schedule to pursue the things in life that really matter – whatever you want that to be.
Forces you to remove baggage.
Moving into a smaller home forces you to intentionally pare down your belongings.
Less temptation to accumulate.
If you don’t have any room in your townhouse for that new treadmill, you’ll be less tempted to buy it in the first place (no offense to those of you who own a treadmill and actually use it).
While some people love the idea of choosing wall colour, rug colour, furniture, window decorations, decorations, and light fixtures for dozens of rooms, many don’t.
A smaller house can help build relationships.
There are plenty of families that grew up in mansions that are extremely close, but when you live in a smaller space together, you learn to work around each other and diffuse problems before they happen. People jokingly say “there’s nowhere to run to” but it’s a true statement. It’s hard to avoid people in a small home.
You learn to work around your differences and mediate problems as they come up. In the sprawling home, it is easy for someone to play Xbox downstairs and someone else to watch movies or fold laundry upstairs. In a smaller house – i.e. a townhouse - everyone spends time in the living room, because that’s the only option. It makes people closer to each other since they spend more time together.
