In case you missed it, I had the pleasure of hosting a webinar last month with Leah Thayer of Daily 5 Remodel on the small-spaces trend for homes that has swept the nation.

The trend toward larger homes in the U.S. stopped abruptly in 2007, and the resulting trend toward small spaces will impact the housing market for years to come. In this webinar, I outline strategies for remodelers, designers and architects to inspire homeowners to “right-size” their existing homes in ways that emphasize quality over quantity, enhance their existing spaces and conserve energy and resources.

Also featured in the webinar are how several building product and home manufacturers have evolved their product lines to meet these emerging desires, how architects use “design tricks” to make small spaces feel larger, and how remodelers can add function and appeal to every space inside – and outside – their clients’ homes.
