Latest Favorite Space Saving Ideas

I’m always on the lookout for those space saving solutions that will making tiny living that much more enjoyable. After my first tiny house experience I ultimately realized that the biggest error in the design was lack of storage space. My next living space will definitely have better fold out tablethought out arrangements especially around clothing storage and kitchen/entertainment space.  First, and most important criteria in my book, is that everything does double duty!

Several of the following ideas cover plenty more than that! My magical mathematical formula for this goes as follows: space saving + storage space/innovation= Desirable. So here a few designs that have lately met with success in this equation!

Tables are a real focus for me when it come to saving space but also making the most of the tablespace you have. Tables need to perform a multitude of functions without wasting valuable space and since I love anything that folds in to a wall these tables makes my list! Plus they feature innovative hidden storage solutions. Bonus!  Fairly unique tables with straightforward designs-attributes I can always appreciate.

A modern looking option with this transformative bench provides an eastern flair with low to the floor eating/seating, making this an attractive option for any tiny dweller. I truly love the simplicity of this design as well as its versatile, space saving solution. Having multiple options is an advantage in a small space where you make the most of every corner!

It’s hard to come up with creative ideas for those gaps where your kitchen or bathroom sink sit which is why I love this drawer design! You can really make use of all the nooks and crannies with this one piece of cabinetry. Definitely innovative!

The toilet below totally appeals to my renewable resource bent that I search for in any appliance. This one solves the problem of where to put a sink in the bathroom and uses the greywater to flush the black. I really wanted a small sink in the bathroom of La Casita but it proved an obstacle in the design and it was decided that particular element would have to be ditched. If I only I had seen this toilet sooner!

Las but certainly not least is this nifty built-in extension cord! Details, dear reader, it’s all in the details! This is just way to convenient not to consider in my next tiny house build! Now how in the world do you roll it back in there?
