Tiny house Designed and built by Summit Tiny Homes.
Personally, I think tiny houses skimp a bit on the living room area. I know there’s not much space to work with, but I know that I love to relax and lounge which requires comfortable furniture that’s fairly large.
Your best bet is some form of built-in furniture that spans the width of one end of the house, preferably a large built-in sofa in a U-shape. This is a very common tiny home living room layout.
While some features an armchair, most offer one continuous sofa, whether straight, l-shape or u-shape.
However, there’s more to the living room in a tiny house than the furniture. There are storage considerations as well. In fact, every room in a tiny house should consider creating some storage areas – whether drawers, cabinets or shelves. Some tiny houses embrace this, while other more minimalist designs don’t.

2. Living room with U-shaped built-in sofa and wall-mounted TV
Relatviely spacious living room in this tiny house. The U-shaped built-in blue and white sectional sofa is a bit larger than most – long enough to fully recline. There is storage underneath. There’s also a wall-mounted TV, which is not all that common in tiny houses. The Rustic ceiling beams which match the hardwood flooring look great against the white wood and walls. Designed and built by Summit Tiny Homes.
3. Gray and white tiny home living room with cathedral ceiling and bay window
Here’s a tiny home living room with a white cathedral ceiling, white walls, bay window and a comfortable sectional sofa (not built-in). The Living room is situated at the end of the tiny house next to the kitchen. The bay window and two side windows shed the space with plenty of natural light. Designed and built by Summit Tiny Homes.
4. Dedicated tiny house living room space with futon and coffee table
Here’s a very nice and spacious living room for a tiny house. It’s a dedicated room separate from the rest of the house and includes a yellow futon, coffee table, white walls, wood flooring, wall art and 2 windows with curtains. I would add more seating but otherwise, I like the dedicated living room space. Designed by Brian Crabb at Vivacollectiv.com.
This tiny house dedicated a lot of space to the kitchen and includes a breakfast bar dining area so the remaining space for a living room is minimal. The living room here consists of a small window nook sofa shown above. Source: the hOMe project

7. Tiny house living room transforms into a large dining room
The following tiny house takes space efficiency to another level with it’s very cool living room/dining room hybrid space where a large dining table magically appears from underneath. Check out this very cool living room by New Frontier Tiny Homes.
This is a photo of the living room area used as a living room with armchair. You could easily add more living room furniture to this space.
Here’s a photo of the starting process of transforming the living room into a large dining room. The dining table is stored under the floor of the elevated adjacent space.
The dining room table continues being assembled – notice how easy it is.
The living room is now converted to a dining room with a fairly large dining table.
8. Chaise lounge sofa in living room under tiny house loft bedroom
Placing a tiny house living room under the sleeping loft makes sense since you mostly sit down. That’s exactly what how this tiny home was designed by Backcountry Tiny Homes. The space includes a large chaise lounge white sectional sofa that spans the entire width of the home. I particularly like the natural wood walls.
9. Tiny house living room with red built-in sofa, entry area and bookshelf
The following tiny house was designed and built by Greenmoxie.

Here’s a close-up of the seating and coffee table in this tiny house living room.
The living room in this tiny home is situated between the kitchen and bathroom/bunk bed area. It consists of a simple sofa.
The nook bench area of the living room converts into a small dining table that accommodates 3 people.
14. Armless sofa, armchair and white coffee table in microhouse
This example is the living room in what is called a micro house, which is 675 sq. ft. It’s larger than a tiny home and therefore you have the space for a more traditional style living room as seen here with small sofa, armchair and coffee table. This micro home was designed and built by Wind River Tiny Homes.
The above is not your typical living room location in a tiny house. This particular design by Incredible Tiny Homes puts a second living room in the loft above the lower living room. It’s a cool ideas.
