5 Must-Have Appliances for Your Tiny Home

5 Must-Have Appliances for Your Tiny Home

Table of Contents

One of the first challenges of living tiny is wondering how you’re going to fit all your appliances into such a small place. At Tru Form Tiny, we’ve been crafting tiny homes since 2016, so we know how to select the must-have appliances for your tiny home. Drawing from our wealth of expertise, we’re excited to share insights into five appliances that will make your tiny house feel just like home.

Traditional Kitchen Appliances

While traditional kitchen appliances are too big for a tiny home, compact options are available. For example, instead of a full-size oven, consider an all-in-one microwave and convection oven. For many of our clients, the kitchen is the main source of design decisions, as they want both functionality and style. At Tru From, we work with high-quality brands like Unique Appliances, Summit, and Furrion to transform your kitchen space.

These brands offer compact, energy-efficient products that are perfectly suited for small living spaces. With these appliances, you can bring the tiny kitchen of your dreams to life!

Compact Dishwashers

Dishwashers are must-haves for any home, but they can take up a lot of space. Luckily, you can find compact dishwashers specifically for tiny homes. Drawer dishwashers are space-saving wonders, helping you tackle dirty dishes without the appliance dominating your space. Plus, they’re great for storage when moving your tiny home since they’re built-in to the unit! Here at Tru Form, we also do custom work for appliances like dishwashers, so you’re sure to get the perfect appliance for your space and unique needs.

Tankless Water Heaters

Traditional water heaters take up a significant amount of space and use a lot of energy to heat and store water. In a tiny home, this is wasteful and takes up valuable square footage. To ensure a steady supply of hot water without sacrificing space, we recommend tankless water heaters that can deliver hot water on demand.

Combo Washer/Dryer Units

In a regular-sized home, having both a washing machine and dryer may seem necessary. However, in a tiny home, these appliances take up too much space. When it comes to laundry, we’re big fans of the combo washer/dryer unit. We often rely on Splendide for most of our washer/dryer combos. This brand offers functional, compact appliances that get the job done efficiently!

Air Purifiers and Conditioners

Air quality may become an issue in a tiny home if not addressed. Consider investing in a compact air purifier to improve the air quality and ensure your tiny home stays fresh and clean. Mini splits are other great heating and cooling devices. With wall heaters, keeping your home toasty or cool is easy!

With our years of expertise in tiny home design, we know about the must-have appliances for your tiny home to maximize functionality and comfort. We’re luxury tiny home builders and know how to make your tiny home work for you. With Tru Form Tiny on your side, we can make every aspect of your tiny home both practical and inviting.
