The Tiny House Movement has become a world wide phenomenon – even a sort of revolution. People are getting fed up with the expense and waste of living large, and long to simplify and downsize their lives and take a deep breath from the release of letting unnecessary things go. A lot of those considering a tiny house are mainly concerned about the things they must give up to live tiny. Things like space and storage, sentimental “stuff’ and clothing. But creative designers and new tiny house home owners are using their imaginations to find ways around these perceived sacrifices, and coming up with clever ideas for storage and arrangement.
Drawers can be found in stairs, under beds and bed platforms, and behind sliding doors. Pull out storage for towels and other items in bathrooms appears in spaces between walls and showers, and spice racks in spaces between walls and refrigerators. A couch can have storage under the seating, and sliding doors enclosing a bathroom can have shelves for books and accessories. Closets can be hidden in walls and under staircases.
Of course to convert to tiny house living you must let go of certain things. Clothes you don’t really wear, books already read, You need to choose your accessories deliberately and with care. But this kind of “letting go” can teach you a valuable lesson. It makes you choose what means the most to you. It teaches you to be discerning. It teaches you about the things that really matter to you. It makes you have to decide the differences between what you really need and what you just want. The images below are intended to serve as inspirations, and to stimulate your creativity and cleverness. They also ask you to choose. And making choices can be the most difficult thing to do.
