Tiny House Living: 5 Must-Know Space-Saving Tips



Welcome, Tru Form Enthusiasts! Here we believe that living sustainably and minimally doesn’t mean sacrificing style or functionality. Even in our tiny homes, we continue making room for life.

In the realm of tiny living, finding space in general can be a challenge. But fear not, because we’ve got some tips that will not only make your space work for you but also add a touch of charm to your tiny home.

Tansu Stairs

The cabinetry of Japan known as Tansu is used in many of our designs. Tansu is a hybrid that is both a staircase and storage. It is also known as the kaidan-dansu, literally box stair and stair chest or step-chest. Each step cleverly conceals a storage compartment, adding both practicality and elegance to your tiny home. With Tansu stairs, you’re not just climbing; you’re ascending to new heights of style and functionality! By cleverly maximizing space with their ingenious storage compartments, Tansu stairs provide practical functionality but also add a touch of elegance and character to your tiny home. It’s a practical and visually pleasing addition that will elevate the style and functionality of your living space to new heights (literally)!

Elevate Your Space (Literally)

How to use tiny house vertical space? Tru Form has thought of that, so here is a great example! Consider using lift beds to maximize floor space. You can effortlessly lift these innovative beds to the ceiling when not in use, creating valuable space for other activities. Some of our favorite multifunctional spaces have been seeing them transformed into at-home offices, yoga studios, art studios, dining areas, and so many others. Whether you want to create a cozy reading nook, a home office, or even a mini gym, the versatility of lift beds allows you to transform your living area into a truly multifunctional space.

A Loft Above the Bathroom

Imagine snuggling up in your loft above the bathroom, surrounded by the warmth and charm of your tiny home. It’s not just a sleeping space; it’s a private retreat that makes the most of your high ceilings. Need a kid’s room, an office, or just extra storage? This loft has you covered. Tru Form stays at regulation height which is 14 feet. This means you’ll often need to decide if you want enough head space upstairs or in your loft. We often go the route of keeping your main level roomier and having your upstairs be an area for sitting, a child, or storage. We have seen some pretty creative ways to set up this experience. Check out our Cascade Mini, where our client put her bed under her loft so she could keep her laundry upstairs and roomy!

Multipurpose Beds

Your bed is your safe space. When it comes to maximizing space in your tiny home, having a bed that serves more than one function can be a total game-changer. Consider investing in a versatile sofa bed or a convenient multipurpose bed that offers additional functions that enhance your overall living space. With a sofa bed, you can easily accommodate guests or create a comfortable seating arrangement for relaxation and entertainment.

Storage Under the Couch

Don’t let the space under your couch go to waste – One of the most effective space-saving tips for your tiny home is to make use of the often-overlooked space under your couch. Instead of settling for a regular couch, why not choose one that comes with built-in storage? We often create custom built-ins under our couches or throughout the entire home in order to add extra hiding places for our things. This ingenious feature allows you to neatly put away items like extra blankets, pillows, or even seasonal clothing, keeping your living space neat.

Opt for a couch with built-in storage and neatly stow away blankets, pillows, or seasonal clothing. It’s a small change that makes a big difference in keeping your living space clutter-free.

We hope these tiny house space-saving tips have sparked your imagination, guiding you toward a more functional and cozier living space.
