3 REASONS WHY HAVING YOUR OWN SPACE IS #LIFEGOALS

In the Philippines, it’s common to live in your parents’ home even after you’re already earning a living on your own. This is due to the Filipinos’ deep value for loved ones and culture of an extended family.  However, wouldn’t you want to leave your comfort zone and live in your own space? Here, we list down three solid reasons to convince you to make that big move:

 

  1. YOU GET TO DECORATE YOUR PLACE BASED ON YOUR OWN STYLE

One of the best things about living independently is that you get to experiment and inject your distinct personal touch in your furniture and decor. You can mix and match certain pieces and choose any color of your preference. That teal blue accent chair you’ve been eyeing at the home section of the department store? Go get it. It’s your own space anyway!

 

  1. YOU HAVE PEACE AND QUIET

Can you imagine coming home after a long day at work to a relaxing home void of all unnecessary chatter and noise? You can do some minutes of yoga, light a scented candle and just read a book for a well-deserved me-time, or binge watch your favorite series.

 

  1. YOU LEARN INVALUABLE LIFE LESSONS

Living independently opens you up to real-life #adulting. You get to mature and truly know yourself. Living in your own space allows you to learn how to manage your own finances, how to cook, iron clothes, fix leaky faucets, replace light bulbs, and handle minor repairs. While it may be challenging at first, you are the real winner in the end.

 

Now, here are two things to consider when you finally decide to move out:

 

  • BEING FINANCIALLY READY: Of course, living on your own will require some initial source of funds. Some people may have a bit of savings to start with, some may consider bank loans, and a privileged few may have parents who are willing to provide initial assistance with the down payments and all. For millennials who are just starting out, it will be best to think about your alternatives. Renting is a better and more practical option if you are on a budget.

 

  • CHOOSING YOUR OWN SPACE: There are a lot of home types available in the market today – from condominiums, studio apartments, townhouses, to house and lots. With a wide array of choices in various cities nowadays, it will be wise to engage with a property locator service like Dwellings by Eton. Dwellings is a personalized and professional full-service program that assists renters from inquiry to move-in. Plus, you will have faster turnaround times for your requests and have a personal home maintenance partner anytime!
