Tiny House Kitchen Ideas

If really serious about living in a Tiny House then start now. Especially in the kitchen, living in your current space as if you were already in a Tiny House kitchen (or any other room) is a great way to find out just how much space you really need for storing supplies, working and living in a smaller space. Limit yourself to using only those drawers and cabinets you think you will have in a Tiny House and adjust as needed until you find the right sized space you need to have. That should show you just how much kitchen and living space you need to design into your own Tiny House. It will also reveal how big or small the whole Tiny House needs to be for you for all the living spaces.

By combining a kitchen and bathroom in the same ‘wing’ in a tiny house, one can create a lot of space. For example, in Mendy’s tiny, that extra space was used to house an extremely comfortable sofa (which can be turned into a bed) and a lounge area for entertaining and watching movies. It’s amazing that Mendy’s tiny house is only 16′ long! If you want plan on driving your tiny house quite a bit and are leaning towards a smaller foot print, a floor plan such as the one built by Tennessee Tiny Homes is a great option.

Gourmands rejoice, a full sized kitchen IS possible in a tiny house! Realistically, if cooking is a center piece of your day to day life, you may want to consider a tiny house that is 28′ or longer. You could get away with a 24′ tiny house and still have full sized appliances, but the amount of storage for food, cookware, and small appliances will be reduced.

A 28′ tiny house with a full sized U-shaped kitchen is large enough for two to three adults living in it full time. There is enough space for food storage, large appliances and cookware to feed a family that eats at home the majority of the time. There is ample counter space for three people to be preparing food at the same time. If your priority is eating a home prepared meal as much as possible and you don’t intend on traveling with your tiny house a ton, this may be an ideal tiny house layout for you.

A mid tiny house galley kitchen creates very interesting opportunities in a small abode. For starters, it frees up one end of a tiny house floor plan, creating enough space for a downstairs bedroom or lounge area. The Traveler Escape tiny house is an excellent example of this function.

But to be clear, no problems at all having kitchen in the middle of a tiny house. It can work out really well bc it leaves the end of a tiny house potentially open for a downstairs bedroom or living room with larger couch. Just always be sure to consider the implications of this on the weight ratio of the tiny house load atop of the trailer. Each trailer design can vary when it comes to the placement of the axles under the trailer bed. Hope that clarifies but if not feel free to holler at me again! Reply

Speaking of sailboats and RV’s, tiny house builders often use items specialized for sailboats and RV’s in their tiny house. The combo kitchen units sold to RV and boat-owners are good for tiny houses since they’re relatively cheap, and offer a sink, cooking platform, refrigerator, and storage all in one unit.

A great way to save on space in a tiny house kitchen is to use non-standard cabinetry and counter tops. Standard units would have taken up way too much space in Mendy’s tiny house so Tennessee Tiny Homes built them at 20″ deep (rather than the 24″ standard). Very often, standard lower cabinets are so deep that a lot of the space in the back actually becomes unusable or only for long term storage. If you don’t need a ton of food storage, you will likely appreciate the shallower cabinets because you will be able to see everything easily.

Sophie June 8, 2016 at 7:13 am # Completely agree. We’re at the start of our 3 month build at the moment so our plans are pretty set and, as it stands, the kitchen is over 1/2 the house (total 20′). A lot of that is open space and seating but all in the same area as the stove, oven, countertops, etc. When I think back on my childhood, most of my memories are from our big farmhouse kitchen. We had a living room but barely used it as we preferred to be in the kitchen where the chef(s) could be included in the conversation. We’re big into good food so there was nearly always someone cooking. I knew I wanted that in my tiny house but would need to trim some things to make it work. Counterspace always seems to be in short supply so we stuck with plenty of that, but fridge space? More of that only ever seems to lead to good food getting forgotten at the back until it moulders so there’s only going to be a small fridge. Big sink, but with a cutting board that slots on top so it’s multi-use. All the fresh fruit and veg storage hangs from the beams. The stove top has become two single burner induction cooktops that can be put away when not in use and there’s the option to add a 3rd or 4th if just having two drives me crazy in those few times when I could use more. Etc. We’re only on day 2 of the build so I’ll know a lot more about how well this works once we start in on building (and then using) the kitchen. We do have a blog which will follow all this (when I have a chance to post between build tasks!) but I don’t want to spam so will only post that if I get the ok from Gabriella or Andrew. Good luck with your own planning and build! Reply
