Over the past several years, we have seen a lot of products shrink in size and often with added benefits. Here is a great infographic that we put together to provide you with the trend basics.
To promote the launch of mini Cokes in Germany, these little kiosks were set up in several towns and along with selling mini cokes, they sold bite size candy bars, smaller newspaper and little snacks! So cute!
High End Restaurants have always offered smaller portions with amazing taste, now the chain restaurants are beginning to offer smaller portions and at smaller prices. Other trends such as cupcakes and cookies are offering portion control options as long as you can eat just one!
There are all types of tiny living spaces. Utilizing lots of windows and tall ceilings makes the spaces feel larger than they really are. Some are also mobile to move with you!
Not only homes are shrinking in size, but so are restaurants. Check out this restaurant with it’s great use of space – bunk eating! We just don’t want to be on the bottom bunk table.
Best Buy is one Big Box Store that is opening smaller spaces specific to certain products such as the mobile phone store to the right.
Miniature breeds are growing in popularity. The reasons are due to aging populations, reduced living spaces and an increase in urban dwellers. Smaller pets are easier to maintain, take up less space and are crazy cute.
