It has been said that the Floor-Plan makes or breaks the house. It is the deciding factor if you will have enough room, enough bedrooms, and a practical flow for your home. When designing a floorplan for a tiny house, there are a few things that need to be considered before you take the plunge:
- How many beds will you need to fit in the home?
- Will a loft be sufficient for additional sleeping?
- How much storage will you need?
- Will more than 1 person be using the bathroom at once?
- How much cooking will you be doing?
- Do you need a gas stove?
- Will you need space for a washer & dryer?
- How much room for entertainment?
Since the space is smaller in a tiny home, you will need to consider all of these items and anticipate your need and use of limited space. Lack of storage is usually a stess-maker down the road so plan accordingly. Adding a loft, closets or additional cabinets can help alleviate this.
Here are a handful of floorplans that may help you to see what your options are for a tiny home. Enjoy
