In a tiny house or small space it is very important that the furniture fits and is sized
correctly for the space. Living in a small space forces you to re-evaluate your needs
and to de-clutter your belongings.
Wooden Beds should not be oversized or overwhelming to the room.
The use of small lumber is the best way to fit into the downsized room.
Bulky heavy timbers should be avoided, as they will dominate and overwhelm the space.
Dining Tables also go along these same lines of thought. If your table is huge and
overwhelming it will dominate the room and make it feel smaller than it is.
A small extendable dining table makes the room feel larger and can be expanded
when guests are visiting and reduced to the smallest size for every day living.
Book Cases are also a big issue. If you are a collector of books, what is the best
way to store them. Small cases or built in book cases are the best way to go in a
small space. Here again make sure you design or buy the book case to fit the size
of the room.
These are just a couple of pieces of furniture to consider. In your quest to live
light and small you will need to evaluate each room and it’s furnishings.
