empty room and window

This is a picture of my bedroom. It’s exactly the way I want it – practically empty (except for a bed and a light), and spacious.

Most homes have some kind of boundary – some kind of walls and roof that enclose an empty space. I’ve noticed that some people seem to crave as much space as possible within their homes, while other people feel more comfortable with smaller spaces, or spaces full of furnishings and belongings. (Or themselves – like this little guy, below.) Most people’s idea of home includes some kind of space to inhabit.

How much space do you need in your home? Do you currently have the amount of space that makes you feel comfortable?
