Furnishing a tiny house can be trickier that putting together a standard size house. But with a bit of clever thinking you can make the most of your tiny space. Whether you are planning to live in your tiny home full-time or you are planning to rent it out, good furnishing is important.
Five tips to help you when you are furnishing a tiny house
Divide the space creatively
Often tiny homes have one living area that combines kitchen, dining and living in an open plan style. To create a feeling of definition you can use furniture cleverly to mark out spaces. Think about corner lounge suites to create a border between living and dining or use low bookcases or small tables to make areas.
Think about how you will move around
When you are placing your furniture think about how you will move around your home. Which are the most common routes you will take between different areas of the house? Don’t block these routes with furniture which will be frustrating to walk around all the time.
Be clever with storage
If you only have a tiny space, then storage space is at a premium. When you are furnishing your tiny home, look for clever storage opportunities. Look for furniture that can double as storage such as ottomans with a hidden cavity or bunk beds with under-bed storage areas.
Think about decor
Keeping your paintwork and furniture in lighter colours will help maximise the feeling of space in your home. Place artwork carefully and think about having one feature wall to add interest without clutter. Well placed mirrors can help increase light and the feeling of space.
Minimise your stuff
If you are planning on living in a tiny home, then living clutter-free is a bonus. The less stuff you have the less you need to find space for. Clever meal planning can also help you reduce the amount of foodstuffs you will need to store and reduce waste.
If you are planning to rent your tiny home out with furniture, then don’t put too much in to start with. This will give your tenants more room for their own things.
