Pretty stunning tiny homes

We’ve all heard the saying “bigger is better” right?

But with the increasing importance on being more environmentally friendly and creating smart spaces, it looks like instead of opting for the typical thousands of square feet home, with x amount of bedrooms, an open plan kitchen, lounge, x amount of bathrooms – with a few en-suit, people are opting to do more with less.

Beautifully styled tiny smart homes are the new appeal. There’s a trend unfolding globally which is revealing the true value offered by smaller, more eco-friendly spaces.

In this blog, we have a look at some of these truly inspiring tiny homes.

This tiny home designed by Handcrafted Movement, is a 290-square-foot home that  shows off deep blue wall paneling and herringbone floors. Combined with a curbed oak butcher block countertop and teeny breakfast bar, and geometric open shelving – this little beauty will cost you around 1million rands – talk about dynamite in a small package.

Well, this is new and cool: The entire front facade of this tiny modern house is covered with climbing panels, so its owners can rock climb anywhere they go.

It’s quite refreshing to find a meticulously thought out and beautifully executed tiny house such as the  “Golden” designed by American Tiny House.

Functionally, you get a bright loft over a relatively spacious living room, stairs with custom cubbies and a two-seat bar office in the kitchen. From a style perspective there’s trendy grey cabinetry, a farmhouse sink, plus herringbone details.

Tiny modern houses are not always associated with being sleek and fully accessible, but the Wheel Pad offers just those two benefits.

Intended as a wheelchair-friendly secondary dwelling, the 200-square-footer features a ramp access, and an open living area with a bed and desk on one end and a bathroom with a composting toilet, sink, and shower on the other. Aside from the truly amazing functionality of this pad, how gorgeous is the metallic meets wooden look and feel?

Now, of all the tiny houses we have shown you today this Trinity tiny house by Alabama Tiny Homes looks pretty typical from the outside, but the interior layout probably isn’t what you’re used to—in a good way.

Instead of having a staircase that runs along the length of the space, this tiny house fits one along the width, making room for a spacious living area with a lofted bed over it. It almost feels like a typical full-size open-plan apartment, with a kitchen counter overlooking the living area.
