There are singles, couples and even families who are opting to live in tiny homes and spend most of their lives traveling and exploring new places. This way they are relieved from the burden of paying heavy mortgages and house taxes. With the tiny home living lifestyle, you can now save more and spend more on yourself. This is bringing a sense of freedom, especially in the younger generation.
For families, however, opting this way of lifestyle can become a little hard at times as tiny homes are no doubt limited on space, and adjusting more than two can take a little more effort and planning. So in order to make the space more comfortable, you can opt for the following options to be incorporated into your tiny living space.
Adding Extra Partitions:
The point not to get tied up in a house, but plan and divide the space in such a way that the house is not cluttered and offers enough space for the people to move around and stay.
By adding simple partitions, it can create a division of two bedrooms; also it can offer some privacy while taking rest or changing.
A good and interesting option especially for kids, instead of going horizontal, why not go vertical with bunk beds. For adding small sized bunk beds do make sure that they are permanently fixed onto the walls of your tiny house. Especially in case, you plan to travel with your tiny house on wheels, these beds can slide and shift from their actual position. So fix a bunk bed in the corner of your space, add some rugs and mats and the place will look more spacious while offering more space to sleep comfortably.
Another good option you can try is adding sofa-cum-beds. These beds can be folded and used as sofas. So while you are awake and maneuvering in and around the house, you can keep the bed folded. You can also use this as in extra. So why not invite a couple more of your friends and they can adjust easily in the extra foldable bed.
Beds and Compartments with Storages:
Adding beds that offer some storage space are always convenient for tiny homes. You can keep your bags; clothes and even your shoes can be kept in beds that offer storage compartments. Furniture that offers multi-usage is on trend these days. Also, you can opt for rotating wardrobes, for separating seasonal clothes. So, opt for options that offer ample space for storage for your tiny house design.
One of the biggest challenges when it comes to designing a tiny house for a family is to create space for moving and larger food prep/eating area. For making a good 4-sized living area, make sure that you add tables and chairs that are in sync with the overall size of the room. Adding large chairs and sofas can cram up space while adding a small round table for 4 with stools instead of chairs can clear more space to breathe.
Your micro house design, its interiors and especially the eating area should be according to your needs. If you require more space to keep your clothes, make more space for storage while cutting down on other. While, if you have a lot to freeze, have more space for a big freezer. You have to supplement one thing for the other in order to make a livable space inside a tiny house.
