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.
