They’re basic and inexpensive alternatives to the massive and savage houses that appear to take over. We’ve collected the best micro-home designs that really caught our interest in 2022! From an AI-enabled tiny home to a two-level tiny cabin with an area of 100 square feet, there’s a tiny dwelling that will appeal to all!
1. Cube One

Nido is a small cabin that has a floor area of 100 square feet in order to conform to Finland’s zoning laws which do not require a building permit for homes with floor plans of between 128 and 96 square feet. The cabin is built on two levels and features an exterior that is low-profile, with unfinished wooden siding and painted white frame elements that bind the cabin with a touch of elegance. A ramp that is made of planks of wood leads to the cabin’s entry point and connects the deck on the side of the cabin. Inside, the wide, angled windows flood the floors with natural light and complement the cabin’s natural wooden interior as well as soft shades of the Scandinavian-inspired color scheme that is found throughout the cabin.
Planedennig, which means “little planet” in Breton, was designed and built by Gael as well as Eflamm, the mother and her infant son, to provide the space to live in and play. It is distinguished by the vibrant joints that line the exterior. Planedennig’s exterior has a cedar-finished finish that can help to keep the energy of play at bay. Its total length is just 6 feet long; Planedennig has a unique design that makes the most of the small home’s internal space.
4. Portable Cabin
The concept was to create a tiny home made up of two used freight containers. Portable Cabin is a 55m2 mobile house and office that is located in Poznan, Poland. It is situated above a small stream that was designed by Wiercinski Studio. The Portable Cabin was prefabricated off site before being deposited in the lush and lush surroundings of the city’s Szelagowski Park. The park is where Wiercinski developed the interior design for the Portable Cabin within just one day. From the exterior, Portable Cabin boasts its manufactured profile, which has subtle façades in army green constructed from the trapezoidal shape of sheet metal. The exterior is camouflaged to create sunny, sun-soaked interiors. The living areas in Portable Cabin are framed by Birch plywood panels.
5. Wai House
The modern design concept was specifically designed for construction on the island of New Zealand and focused on taking water and using it responsibly. The structure itself is built using sustainable materials. Cedarwood is used for exterior cladding as well as the interiors utilize concrete made from recycled plastic in place of sand. It has a Japandi-like design that is stylish enough to stand on its own without taking away from the setting it’s within. It was designed to capture and store rainwater to use by installing systems that channel it into the kitchen, bathroom, and the outside greenery. As it’s an idea, it is possible for it to become more eco-friendly by incorporating solar panels to improve energy efficiency.
In the course of five years, Hoffman slowly transformed an old trailer for utility into a mobile, 156-square-foot home. The idea was born out of a desire to build her own house. Particularly driven by the minimalist edge of modernism in the desert, Hoffman turned to construction materials that fit the requirements and also offered several functional components for the house that could withstand the elements and the local wildlife.
7. Second Home
Second Home is a collection of tiny residences designed and constructed through Japanese startup SANU with a minimum of building materials to allow visitors to be immersed in the beauty of nature to get a brief respite from the bustle of urban living. In designing and building honeycomb-shaped homes, SANU ensured a lightweight and replicable design that requires only a few construction materials for the work. Each Second Home cabin was constructed prefabricated using 100 100% Japanese cedar. It is attached to the ground by six piles. These aren’t a significant impact on the existing landscape.
While we don’t travel as often in 2022 as we were in 2019, our house interiors begin to incorporate more furniture, rugs, artwork, and paint, which reflect our past and where we’re moving. Consider unique pieces of art, mixing and matching patterns, textures, and colors. As a nod to minimalist design, you can expect to see these pieces in simple, natural shades – and not much “over the top” in the sense of clutter. Prepare these hot designs that will spice up your house.
