Spacious Design Ideas For Three Bedroom Tiny Homes

NAVIGATION


Oftentimes, families and couples look to tiny living to change their way of life. But in the early days of the movement, people built tiny houses that were much smaller than they are today. Now, families and young couples are building their houses on larger trailers in search of a complete lifestyle shift — one with less stress, more financial freedom, and better control over how they spend their time.

When I first started building, I wasn’t sure if I could fit all of my needs into such a small space. However, I’ve learned that building a tiny house that feels open and comfortable is possible. There are many design and layout variations for three-bedroom tiny houses that can accommodate a family or guests without making the house feel crowded. Here’s what you need to know.

Hi, I’m Ryan
A tiny house with 3 bedrooms is plenty of space for a family, if you plan it well. The best three bedroom floorplans tend to separate the bedrooms to the opposite ends of the house, leaving the shared spaces like the kitchen, living room, and dining room acting as buffers, so everyone can find a little personal space in a tiny home.

Can You Build A Tiny House With Three Bedrooms?

Can You Build A Tiny House With Three Bedrooms

When people think about switching to tiny living, they usually picture a one-bedroom tiny house. But the tiny house world is rapidly expanding and with it, the number of amazing designs for all walks of life. It’s now normal to build larger tiny houses that include two bedrooms, three bedrooms, or even four bedrooms.

While less is more when it comes to adopting the tiny house lifestyle, that doesn’t mean you can’t live in a tiny house if you want a little more space. Adding more bedrooms won’t take away from your experience if you’re intentional about how you design your home and your life.

Why Should You Consider A Three Bedroom Tiny House?

Why Should You Consider A Three Bedroom Tiny House

Before you begin designing your tiny interior, think about the reasons you are considering building it in the first place. Doing some hard soul searching will give you great clarity into what you need out of your tiny home.

You should also consider the individual needs of each person that will be living in the house. Are you single, a couple, or a family? Each person will have specific requirements that must be met for a tiny house to function optimally.

Living in such a small space with your partner isn’t for the faint of heart. Both people really have to want to live tiny if it’s going to work.

What I’ve found living in my own tiny house is that making the switch can bring a new level of fulfillment to your daily life. Part of being an adult is making the decisions that work for you while balancing your responsibilities, and sometimes that means committing to your desires even if they go against the grain. If you and your partner crave simplicity, building a tiny house could be a solid start.

You might be looking to escape the demands of the city and create a quieter life. Or maybe you want to build a tiny vacation home or travel across the country. It’s possible that a one-bedroom tiny home will suffice for the needs of you and your partner. However, you may want an extra bedroom or two to travel with family, have friends stay in your home, or make room for future children. If this is the case, you should consider two bedrooms or three bedroom tiny houses.

DESIGN FEATURES TO CONSIDER FOR A COUPLE

  • Do you need one or multiple bedrooms?
  • Do you need a large or small kitchen?
  • Do you need a guest bed?
  • Do you want your tiny house to be mobile or fixed?
  • Do you want a TV, bookshelf or a wine cabinet?
  • Do you want a yard or rooftop deck?

Building A Tiny House For A Growing Family

Building A Tiny House For A Growing Family

Whether you are newlyweds looking for a house your family can grow into or you already have children, creating a tiny house that works for you is totally possible.

If your plan is to build a three-bedroom tiny house for you and your kids to live in, my first piece of advice is to think about the individual needs your family has. This can include anything from the features your kids might want to giving parents a quiet space to get away from it all to the land you park it on.

DESIGN FEATURES TO CONSIDER FOR A FAMILY

  • How many beds for you and your children?
  • Do you need extra storage for toys or books?
  • How many bathrooms will you need?
  • Do you prefer a dining table or counter space?
  • Will you want a TV? Multiple TVs?
  • Do your kids need individual “bedrooms”
  • Do you need your tiny house to be baby proof?
  • Do you need room for homeschooling?

Considering the answer to each of these questions is the first step in building a tiny house that your family can happily grow into.

Looking To A 3 Bedroom Tiny House For Extra Space

Looking To A 3 Bedroom Tiny House For Extra Space

Maybe you’re considering a larger tiny house just because you need extra room for potential guests, extra activities, or just because you want to build a bigger house. Even if you don’t plan to move your family into your tiny house or use it to travel with a partner, a small home can still be a great option for living a simpler life.

Here are some tips for including an extra bed in your tiny house without making your house feel cramped:
