Here’s the proof you need that tiny homes can be modern

The stories about families leaving behind spacious homes for cozier quarters have inspired thousands to shed the excess and find more simplicity in tiny homes. And while you should think carefully about your needs and future plans before investing in one — as you should any home — there are plenty of people that tiny houses make a lot of sense for.

Many turn to tiny houses to spend more time traveling or be closer to nature, so the designs tend to be pretty rustic as well. And while this aesthetic is absolutely gorgeous, it isn’t the only way to style your tiny home.

We’re going to show you exactly how modern tiny homes are paving the way for future housing and how you can start your journey to tiny living.

Why modernity is a much-needed element in tiny homes

Many tiny homes tend to appear rustic, featuring natural woods, vintage-looking stoves or sinks, and plenty of blankets and added color to adorn these small spaces. This design is popular largely because the owners of tiny homes tend to be in favor of simple living, outdoor activities, rugged design aesthetics, and a bohemian lifestyle that affords them the ability to travel wherever they want and take their home with them.

However, plenty of homeowners out there want to take advantage of this lifestyle but aren’t fans of rustic design. Thankfully, as the trend catches on and more and more homeowners want more variety in their tiny decor, sleek designs and a high-tech aesthetic are finally within reach.


Introducing Nestron’s new Cube Two X

Singapore-based company Nestron recently unveiled its designs for a futuristic tiny home called Cube Two X. The tiny home is a dream come true for lovers of space-age aesthetics, eco-friendly construction, and tiny living. The Cube Two X models are 376 square feet and are available in one-bedroom and two-bedroom designs. Thanks to innovative technology, these prefab homes are efficient to build and ship, creating less environmental waste throughout the home-building process. Additionally, Nestron says that ninety percent of their materials are recyclable, making this tiny home one of the most environmentally friendly options on the market.

Once the home arrives, all the new homeowner has to do is call a local contractor to hook it up to power and water lines. After that, the Cube Two X is a fully functional home.

When it comes to the layout, this tiny home utilizes every inch of space to create a sense of expansiveness while also including the necessities like plenty of storage, a fridge, stove, washing machine, and many other utilities. There are other additional features that can be added to the home during the customization process such as a smart toilet, invisible induction cooktop, and mounted smart tablet.

Additionally, all the furniture is built-in, saving homeowners time and money since they don’t have to furnish their new space. It also allows for easier transportation of the Cube Two X since you don’t have to worry about securing or removing any chairs and tables.

The Nestron Cube Two X was built for functionality as well as design. The sleek layout maximizes space through the use of built-ins, hideaway furniture, and compact appliances. Additionally, several high-tech elements like voice recognition and hands-free lighting make the experience futuristic and unbelievably convenient. If you’re interested in owning a Cube Two X, preorders are available via Nestron’s website.

What this could mean for future homeowners

The Cube Two X offers a fantastic alternative for homeowners who have considered downsizing but found that traditional tiny homes didn’t meet their needs. The spacious design and modern additions will excite anyone who adores space-age marvels and simplistic living. Moreover, as an environmentally friendly space, this tiny home also caters to a lifestyle of sustainability, a must for eco-conscious consumers.

Nestron’s Cube Two X is paving the way for tiny living, proving that you don’t need to spend millions of dollars to live in luxury — and that tiny home design isn’t one-size-fits-all. Homeowners who’ve been waiting for futuristic home environments, innovative technology, and a chance to live in a modern and luxurious space have the opportunity to make their dreams come true. Of course, there’s no telling what the future may hold when it comes to the popularity of tiny houses, but it’s safe to say that, with innovations like this on the horizon, potential homeowners will have a lot more choice when it comes to their chosen aesthetic.
