A Guide to Buying Furniture for a Tiny Home

While buying furniture for a home can be challenging, doing so for a tiny home can feel impossible. You will be working with minimal space, so you have to think carefully about the choices you make. We have put together a guide that will help you buy the right furniture for every room in your tiny home.


The most important piece of furniture in the bedroom is the bed. You need to find a comfortable one and one that gives you additional storage space. There are many beds with built-in storage either under them or at their feet. The best beds should help you make the most use of vertical space and the corners.

The key is finding a multifunctional bed that takes the place of two to four items. To keep costs low, do consider second-hand and vintage options which are typically cheaper than store options.

Kitchen and Dining Room

For these rooms, the key considerations are your choice of appliances and furniture. If you have the space, you can find a dinette furniture set that will fit in your tiny home kitchen. There are lots of options to choose from here, but ensure you look at the dimensions of both the set and your kitchen to ensure everything will fit.

If you do not have the space to spare, look into folding or retractable options. These types of furniture will stay out of your way whenever you are not using them.

The choice of appliances is very subjective in a tiny home, but most people choose ones that are not bulky and that are essential for them. For example, you might not require an oven, and you will end up saving a lot of space by not getting one.

Living Room

The main challenge with furniture for the living room is finding a comfortable couch and other furniture. Compact couches that are also comfortable can be difficult to find which is why you need to test the couch beforehand. If you can find a comfortable one that also doubles as a bed, that would be the best option.

For the TV, you have two options. You can either get a TV cabinet or hang the TV on the wall. You can get a compact TV cabinet VidaXL that also doubles as a storage space to make the most of the space you have. Hanging your TV is also an option but check that your walls can hold the weight before going down this route.


For the bathroom, you can opt for a slim furniture selection. You can even save space and forgo having a sink in there as the kitchen sink is probably very close.

For most people, a shower and toilet are enough.  A small tub that will fit into the space you have is an incredible choice. When choosing the toilet and shower, do consult a plumber so they can consider the plumbing and make the right plans and recommendations.

The main thing to keep in mind when furnishing a tiny house is that everything you add should have multiple uses and make great use of the space you already have. You also need to be adaptable so you can switch things up as your needs change.
