5 Inspiring Tiny House Ideas I Used In My Own Design

One thing you will learn about me is that I love tiny houses! So much that I designed my daughter one (see kitchen design proposal here) and will start building it this year. The size of her house is approximately 400 square foot which is a little bigger than I would like to have but it fit her perfect.

When I designed her house I researched tiny houses to the core! I researched the furniture, the kitchen appliances, the plumbing, the materials, the HVAC, and most of all the storage options. All of this had to be taken into consideration before I implemented it in the design. It had to function and function well. I have included 5 Inspiring Tiny House Ideas I Used In My Own Design below. Hopefully they will get you inspired to live in a tiny house.

 5 Inspiring Tiny House Ideas I Used In My Own Design : #1 – I looked at this kitchen over and over and being a kitchen and bath designer I came to the conclusion that this layout will work for my daughters kitchen. The island provided plenty of space for meal prep and serving. That was important to have since she cooks a lot!

5 Inspiring Tiny House Ideas I Used In My Own Design : #2 – After researching my fingers to death for a ladder for the loft (bed area) I finally decided to keep it simple and make a ladder like you see in this picture. It worked like a champ! However if your afraid of heights then you might want to build stairs instead of a ladder.

5 Inspiring Tiny House Ideas I Used In My Own Design : #3 – Having a place to rest your head at night is important but in a tiny house the space is limited. Solution to the problem…Build Up! Yes we added a loft/sleeping area that is big enough for the bed only. Underneath the loft is the kitchen area and the plenum for the loft will provide the proper space for the lighting and HVAC for the kitchen.

5 Inspiring Tiny House Ideas I Used In My Own Design : #5 – This bathroom is very multifunctional as the utilty room is included inside of it. We even put a back door in ours to have easy access to the outside.

I will include a post later of the Mi Tiny Casa design plans. In the meantime, I will continue to find tiny house inspiration to share with you.
