Design Elements That Have a Huge Effect on Your Tiny Homes

Real Estate Agent with Rise Up Local & Lead Generation Experts

 When it comes to designing a tiny space, there are elements to consider that can have a huge effect, no matter how small the face. Texture, finishes, and adornments are just a few elements you can add to affect the overall design and feel of your space. Below are a few examples of how these elements can affect your tiny home in a major way.




A rug, piece of art or patterned furniture can add a texture element to any space that will not be missed. Texture gives the eyes something to see and the fingers something to touch. Texture can make a space feel bigger, which is certainly something you want to do in a tiny home. Texture can easily be incorporated in a variety of ways. A hard floor will pair great with a nubby rug. Plain white walls will look fabulous with an art hanging or wall of books.


Adding curtains to windows or even fabrics to a blank wall can build up a space without taking up too much room. Because the space is tiny, you want to use texture in a way that will add to the overall design without taking away too much floor or wall depth. Take a look around your tiny home and try to configure how you can add texture to each space. Start small with a rug or curtains and then add more as you get a feel for the space.


Sustainable Home Finishes


There are several finishes you can consider for your home. Wood finishes are a popular choice in today’s design as homeowners are opting for a maintenance-free and rustic approach. By adding in rustic touches, a home can still feel modern, but with a country flair. Commercial engineered wood flooring can easily be installed in a tiny home and running the planks in the longest direction can add a visual lengthening of the space. This will make your home appear larger than it really is, while also adding a sense of warmth and comfort.


Home Exterior Design


Another design aspect to consider is your home’s exterior. One way to ensure your home is stylish as well as cared for is with sustainable modern home exterior products.

These products are available on the market today are created from better materials with longer warranty guarantees. This means that your home’s exterior will be protected for a longer period of time.


Design Adornments


A final way you can add to the feel of your space is to consider the design adornments you add. Keeping your décor minimal will help the space to feel open instead of overcrowded. Stick with light décor items and nothing too bulky that takes up too much space. Think about how a décor item will be displayed and how it will fit in the home before making a final purchase.


You can add some charm and personality into your home by placing classical interior design pieces like rustic living room wall decor, amish kitchen hutches or handcrafted chairs. Not only do they look good but they can also spark some cozy conversation as your loved ones visit your home as long as any home decor doesn't create too much of an eyesore.


Considering these aspects will ensure your home is designed in a way that is pleasing to the eye as well as providing ample square footage in a tiny space.
