In my recently acquired tiny home, I refuse to sacrifice high end quality over my needs, and just because I’m a minimalist, that in no way means I’m broke. Rather, I do unquestionably care about luxury items—the difference is that I love luxury items that are arguably quality items as well. Most folks will find that the designers they swear by may look flashy or fancy, but they don’t ever hold up long term. We’re just accustomed to our clothes and shoes falling apart after a year or more, and always having furniture that also needs to be swapped out in a few years. Well, if people had looked for actual quality from the start, instead of just shopping for a certain brand, they might find things that unquestionably last. My tiny home has it all—quartz countertops, real hardwood floors, top of the line chrome appliances, and furniture that is unquestionably built to last and looks like it too. And that’s because I didn’t bother trying to buy precious furniture from a shoddy major retailer, where their factory made items are just not all built to last and instead are built to fall apart so they can make more money off you again in a few years time. Instead, I always try to get high end furniture from my local custom built furniture store. This particular business has been family owned and operated for over 50 years; they’ve managed to stay in business this long because they are dedicated craftsmen and artisans who take pride in their work and have decades of experience. For my particular tiny house, I ordered just a few pieces built from the finest materials available. A gorgeous sofa fitted with the finest leather in a soft buttercream color, an end table that also works as a dining table, chairs that are entirely stored away, and the perfect and most comfortable platform bed. My high end furniture is guaranteed for years to come too, something you can’t say about anything from a box store with China-made fiberboard furniture.
