The tiny house movement has slowly been taking over the nation. In fact, the micro-living movement as a whole has really grown over the last twelve months. Of course, tiny homes, apartments, and even hotels aren’t just cute–they’re a place to call home. That means getting the most out of your space. Below, we’re listing ways to make your tiny space more homey for yourself, your guests, or whoever else might stop by.
Get Unique with Storage Space: Have you ever found a great use for that nook under the stairs in your home? From bookshelves to water closets, home owners have put a unique spin on previously unused space. Tiny homes should do this too. For instance, build in drawers under your window seat.
A White Room: Whether in your kitchen or your bedroom, white makes any space appear bigger and brighter. Use white paint or install white appliances to really make a room stand out.
Use Large Windows: A large pane of glass on an otherwise short or small wall will really open up the room. Don’t be afraid to go big.
Create High Ceilings: Rather than making your tiny space longer, make it taller! You can utilize space near the ceiling for extra storage or even a loft.
Make a Shelf: Shelf space is premium in tiny space. Instead of making a wall, install floor to ceiling shelves. Use them for books, kitchenware, and more.
Electricity: You might be able to hook your micro space up to a power source, but where do you put the outlets? Install a Docking Drawer powering or charging outlet. They’re ETL Listed and fit perfectly into tiny spaces.
Discover Curtains: Curtains might seem a little old school, but using them in a tiny space is quite modern. They provide privacy when it’s needed, but they can easily be adjusted to make two rooms appear as one.
Paint a Pop of Color: Remember how we said white was really great for making a room look larger? A pop of color will go a long way, too. Paint a door yellow, paint a wall purple, or paint your shelving teal. Let your creativity flow and make the space your own.
Open Up Your Closet: Instead of giving your closet a door, put hanging space right out in the open. It will make your bedroom appear much larger and you can show off your style.
Think Smaller: Most tiny spaces come equipped with a shower, but did you know that there are ¾ tubs available? That’s right. If you enjoy a nice soak, don’t discount a smaller tub instead.
These are just some of the ways you can maximize the space of your tiny home. There are dozens more tips and tricks out there–we’d love to hear yours in the comments!
