Are you dreaming of living in a tiny house, but have a few reservations due to the constraints of designing such a limited interior space? Although you really need to use your imagination when living in a house when a modest layout, you can still make it just as practical as it is cozy! Here are a few examples you’ll surely like!

10 Tiny House Interior Design Ideas

1) A modern & rustic interior

This tiny house has both a modern and rustic vibe, one which largely relies on whites to make the space appear bigger. Creating a zone dedicated to meal times that also opens up onto the outside by way of a lot of big windows, amplifies the space, which is especially well done given the small surface area. 

There’s no doubt that natural light seeping in highlights the obvious contrast between the whites and the dark wood colours. Also, the fact that there’s a small loft area off to the side, above the bedroom, prevents one from having to work in bed, where it’s nicer to sleep!

2) A wealth of light

As shown above, white is always a winner in a home filled with small rooms. We have to bank on especially uncluttered decor, which allows us to appreciate the fair value of the home’s beautiful architectural details. 

It’s also worthwhile to highlight the visual effect it makes on the ceiling, which still has its original colouring. This latter really emphasizes it and avoids creating a setting that is too uniform.

3) Bedroom’s kitchen adjacent

If we’re noticing a lot of tiny houses in which white prevails, others will have an array of darker colours. Apart from adding a lot of character to the overall design, it helps to create a cute country feel.

Visually speaking, we love the fact that some sections are raised, which really helps define the space. Although the bedroom located at the very end appears small, it still benefits from large windows nearby. 

4) White on dark wood for a tasteful mix

This tiny house benefits from its height, as well as its length! As a matter of fact, the countertop gracefully highlights this factor. What’s there to say about the amazing ceiling? Its arch frame automatically draws the eyes upward and adds a healthy dose of grandeur to this tiny house. Once again, choosing a very dark wood creates a really tasteful mix with the white, which prevails yet again. 

5) Highlighting light-coloured wood

This tiny house appears to be slightly less refined than the above-shown designs, instead further mimicking the interior layout of a standard-sized house. Although it might not appeal to you, it’s still interesting to see because of the various shades of wood found within. However, one has to figure out how to live in a more cramped space to enjoy it!

6) A cozy and cute interior

Here’s a really cute and cozy tiny house. Choosing natural wood shades gives it a chalet vibe. Moreover, foregoing the combination of several materials creates a visual continuity between the various elements within.

It’s worth mentioning that all areas have a purpose in this tiny house since it appears that there’s storage everywhere, even above and under the bed!

7) An enchanting setting far from prying eyes

Who doesn’t want to live in an enchanted setting that seeps tranquillity? This tiny house is a definite favourite for those who aspire to a new lifestyle. Once again, the sliding door system is ideal to prevent a swinging door from encroaching on the available space. 

The shelves adorning the walls add a lot of charm reminding us that life in a tiny house isn’t simply for refined interior design fans. The pendant light fixtures are especially worth mentioning and widely contribute to creating a spellbinding setting!

8) Diverse materials and textures

This tiny house is yet another example where modern and traditional designs are blended together in perfect harmony. Surprisingly, it features brick, an element that's not usually seen in this type of house.

The built-in light fixtures and the naturally-coloured wood help lighten the space, which prevents the latter from being cramped as a result of a lack of natural light.

9) Japanese and Scandinavian-inspired design

A tiny house that’s completely symbiotic with the surrounding nature? Yes, please! And, here’s the perfect example. The windows to the right cover the entire wall ensuring lovers of nature the possibility of admiring it at all times as well as benefiting from an abundance of natural light. 

Various elements found within its enclosure reflect an obvious interest in Scandinavian and Japanese aesthetics, while also appealing to fans of refined spaces and minimalism. Let’s wrap this up by stating that black wood creates a striking contrast against soft colours. 

10) A “big” tiny house

This tiny house clearly is much bigger than the above-shown examples throughout this article. It showcases a very rustic decor, combining a lot of natural features. 

The windows along with the house’s positioning with the sun allow for a lot of natural light to seep in, which further impacts the hints of colours found here and there.
