As someone who borders on the line of hoarder, I am mesmerized by the concept of tiny homes. Over the past decade, people have started to embrace the minimalistic lifestyle due to its low cost and environmental impact, as well as aesthetic appeal. Many tiny homes feature wood panelling and large windows giving them a seemingly open feel. The wood exterior is inviting and chic compared to the plastic or metal exteriors of camper vans and trailers. Most tiny homes have pitched roofs with overhangs for practically as well as maintaining an element of traditional architecture. Furthermore, the wooden exterior appeals to the concept of environment consciousness.
Most tiny homes are less than 300 square feet, therefore thoughtful and innovative use of space is important. The interior of tiny homes are designed to be efficient: many traditional elements of the home are redesigned to incorporate shelves and storage space. For example, the stairs in the image below house picture frames, baskets, and a washing machine.
Though many tiny homes have the same exterior aesthetic, the interior is customizable by the designer or user. The following three images show a variety of style and aesthetic appeal, while maintaining efficiency.
