These Are The Most Livable Tiny Homes I’ve Ever Seen.
Finding or building a truly livable tiny home is the ultimate goal when joining the Tiny Home community. While ‘Livable’ may look different to everyone, the key takeaway here is striking a balance between downsizing and living comfortably.
To many, living in a tiny house means forgoing some comfort and convenience. In exchange for a small mortgage (or no mortgage!) and freedom of movement, you give up space and material possessions. That’s part of the deal, right?
While this trade-off is no hardship for some, others might miss certain benefits of a traditional home. Like standing space in your bedroom (those tight sleeping lofts are a BIG NO for me), or having enough space for an average-size stove.
Thankfully, tiny house builders have answered the call, designing small spaces that still manage to pack in features you’d find in regular-sized homes.
With the growth in luxury tiny houses, the slightly-larger tiny home trend is becoming more popular. These larger models are perfect for those who want to downsize without sacrificing comfort and convenience.
For me, a liveable tiny home means walking space in my bedroom, the space to use average-sized kitchen appliances, and some separation between living and sleeping spaces. That’s it. Those are my non-negotiables if you will. All of this is possible even in a tiny home model.
FYI, If you’re seriously considering buying or building a tiny home, making a list of your ‘must-haves’ is a great place to start.
Here are eight livable tiny homes that don’t skimp on comfort, convenience, or style!

A Plant-Filled Tiny Home With An Upstairs Walkway & Guest Bedroom
When I think about a livable tiny house Shaye Boddington’s home is the goal! Shaye and her daughter live comfortably in this five-meter by 2.8-meter house in New Zealand. This tiny home features 3 separate bedrooms an upstairs walkway, a full-sized bathroom, and a cool outdoor bathtub and deck. And let’s not ignore that gorgeous garden wall!
A walkway separating bedrooms is quite unusual for a tiny house. But this is what makes this home so… well, livable!
Shaye must walk up the stairs along the walkway and past the living wall to access her bedroom. “That journey makes the space feel a lot bigger,” she says. Her daughter’s room is to the right and there is an amazing bathroom and guest room towards the other end of the home. See the full tour below!
This is one of my absolute favorites and I’m stealing this layout when I’m ready to build my own! If you love this as much as I do you can get the building plans for this exact model (and more designs) on Shaye’s website Shaye’s Tiny Homes. There are other beautiful layouts to choose from, so be sure to check that out!
