HGTV EXPLORES THE APPEAL OF TINY HOUSES IN NEW AND RETURNING SERIES
New York [For Immediate Release - July 29, 2015] The American dream of homeownership is as popular as ever, even if 'home sweet home' is only a couple of hundred square feet in size. This summer, HGTV explores the "tiny house" movement in two new series. Tiny House, Big Living, premiering on Monday, July 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, follows families who want to move into a one-room-fits-all property. Viewer favorite Tiny House Hunters returns for a second season, allowing viewers to tag along as home buyers shop for a variety of "micro-house" options. Tiny House Hunters also premieres on Monday, July 6, with new episodes airing each night at 10 p.m. ET/PT through Friday, July 10.
"Tiny House, Big Living and Tiny House Hunters showcase clever and surprising ideas for living in a remarkably small amount of space," said Allison Page, general manager, HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country. "For many of our viewers, the concept of eliminating the constraints that come with owning a typical home and opting for a simpler and more affordable life is a romantic idea with great appeal."
Tiny House, Big Living highlights how to live large in a small space. Even with structures smaller than 200 square feet, the right layout and high-end accents can help homeowners feel like they are living in style. The series highlights petite customizable properties filled with features such as curved staircases that provide extra storage space, granite countertops and full-sized appliances. Tiny House, Big Living proves that there are countless luxurious touches that make a tiny house feel like a modern, cozy retreat.
In Tiny House Hunters, home buyers across the country are searching for the perfect small place. From converted train cars and little barns to yurts and modular cabins, the series covers every option for compact living. Each episode features families who tour three homes under 600 square feet and find out if they can feel at home in a fraction of the space.
