Depends all on you!
Pros of smaller home-
-Easier to clean and maintain
-More energy and cost effective. Heat and cold air won't be spreading all over the home in unused rooms, You will have one bathroom and a kitchen sink, I'm assuming, so less money on water and lights. Plus, smaller homes heat up and cool down quicker than larger homes.
-More intimate and cozier than a bigger home.
-Less space to work with, so you'll have to get creative with furniture and kitchen items. Many smaller homes that have been updated seem to focus on the kitchen, so you may have more space there, but in case you don't, you can get hanging pot racks and roller carts to increase storage and space. Get rid of bulky bookcases and hang your own shelves.
-One bathroom can suck for a family of even 3 people, but you can work around that.
-Less space to entertain, if that's something you like to do.
-Sometimes, depending on the area, smaller homes can be a pain to resell. All down to where the market is at the time and who's buying (if you consider selling). A lot of people, in America especially, think bigger is better. Many require/want at least 2 bathrooms.
-If you're married and/or thinking about starting a family, it's pretty crazy how quickly you can outgrow your own home. Even if you're a collector, have certain hobbies that require lots of space, a smaller home may not be for you.
So these are things you have to consider. I love my tiny home and don't need anything bigger than what I got.
