30 Tiny House Interior Designs To Inspire You in 2022

tiny house interiors

A tiny house interior can be a pandora’s box of wonderful vision, ingenious design and the highest quality craftsmanship.

From the outside, although stunning to look at, you can perhaps be forgiven for expecting a cupboard-like or box-room interior once you open the door. Although the stature and dimensions may be limiting, thoughts, standards and clever ideas are not.   

You’ll usually find a tiny house in an idyllic countryside spot with access to rambling walks, gurgling streams and calming nature. This all adds to the charm you can find on the inside.

What are tiny homes used for?

In the UK many tiny homes are used as luxury holiday lets on the glamping and quirky accommodation market. For couples, small families and solo travellers, they make for a perfect, relaxing retreat.

As well as this, more and more tiny homes are being used for full-time living. The property market is a tough one to enter these days, so some people are breaking the mold and opting to go a different route, bagging themselves in the process a much cheaper, cost-effective and tranquil setting.

With the rise in remote working careers and working from home opportunities, a WiFi connection and a laptop (and maybe a coffee machine) are all people need to earn a full-time living from the comfort of their own home.

Whatever your purpose for owning, visiting or just general intrigue, there are some truly breathtaking tiny house interior design ideas out there. So whether you’re looking for some small home inspiration, interior design tips or just here for a nosey to see what it’s all about, we can all appreciate the beauty of the tiny home interiors below.

Tiny House Interior Design Ideas

Unlike say a shepherd’s hut interior design which has to abide by a certain rectangular shape and size (usually 7ft by 12-24ft), tiny homes come in all sorts of little packages, forms and arrangements.

From log cabins and trailers, to shipping containers, tree houses and even river boats, all can be classed as a ‘tiny home’.

The only restriction really is the maximum size generally considered to be classed a ‘tiny house’, which is under 400 square feet. For tiny mobile houses, this size is smaller still at around 200 square feet.  

This means that tiny homes have a lot more room (so to speak) for different layouts and design features, including the footprint, use of lofted space, window positioning and other clever techniques to make the most of the space.

When designing a tiny home or just a small living space there are a few crucial aspects to bear in mind:   

  • Where will the windows go? Natural light is incredibly important for your health and wellbeing, plus your collection of indoor house plants
  • What kind of artificial light is needed?
  • What kind of materials and resources you want to use? –  Preferably sustainable and eco-friendly
  • Is your tiny home a full-time living space or holiday accommodation?
  • Have you made the most of the vertical wall space? Perhaps a mezzanine floor or similar type of lofted area?
  • Can chunky furniture fold away or be tucked somewhere neatly? Is there other customised storage?
  • Neutral colours and use of textures help expand a space
  • Be resourceful – do areas of your tiny home have multi-purpose and use so there isn’t any ‘dead’ space?
