If you are one of those peoples who prefers houses rather than apartments, then this article is for you. We have assembled nine small houses that will inspire you to build one for yourself. We have examples of modern and rustic houses, which are also sustainable. These projects and proposals are created with latest trends such as apparent concrete. Follow us through this article and get ideas to start your own dream project. 

1. Classic and traditional

We start with a cozy one-story house that, above all, offers functionality and comfort. These ground-floor villas are ideal for seniors and people with reduced mobility.

1.1. A modern interior

When entering the house, we find large and bright areas with light colors and open spaces.

2. When plants are the protagonists

The use of greenery stands out in this space. Plants with big leaves are the best decorative element for walls, balconies and corners. 

2.1. Eclectic room

We enter and see an eclectic room where several styles convert, resulting in cozy and bohemian environments.

3. 100% wood

The use of wood as the main material in the construction of a house is becoming more common, especially in the prefabricated ones that are ecological and cheap. 

3.1. Inside

Upon entering the house, we find a versatile and comfortable environment where space is maximized. In this situation, multipurpose furniture is essential.

4. Concrete and bright colors

Concrete has always been used in construction. However, it is now left in view because of its purest and industrial state. In this case, it appears combined with vibrant and contrasting colors.

4.1. A space full of contrasts

The apparent concrete was used expressively in this project. To fill the cold tone of this material, colorful pictures were chosen to decorate the living space.

5. For nature lovers

Inside, we find divisions in drywall that separate spaces and provide ingenious decoration possibilities.

6. With two floors

If the ground is narrow, then the house can have two floors, as seen in this proposal of sober appearance and blue facade.

6.1. Surprise lie in the details

Inside, we find walls covered with brick, wooden furniture, ceramic floors and white color creating a very welcoming environment.

7. Country house

For nature lovers, this wooden house is an tribute to the natural and bohemian spirit. We highlight the front porch, an ideal space to enjoy the environment and the landscape.

8. Rustic and romantic

Nobody is indifferent to this lovely stone facade where red is king and appears perfectly complemented by nature.

9. Clay and ancestral

If you have doubts about the advantages of clay to build a house, then look at this example. It is in the middle of the field built with clay and wood. This little ancestral home would be the perfect weekend retreat.
