When Germans say Giving someone a basket they mean Turning someone down. Well, if you give your tiny home a basket you most certainly don‘t turn it down. In the contrary, you add a fancy and elegant element to your home style.
Woven baskets combine two important factors for a home: practicality and beauty. As being a storage place they can be used in every space even the tiniest ones. And they belong to the more beautiful ideas for storage. I gathered some ideas about how you can use a woven basket in your tiny home.
College time is closing in. Are you one of the new college students thinking about how to organize your new dorm room? Switzerland back in my student times had not college system like we have it here. There were though a handful shared apartments for the out-of-town students. I like how college is organized here in the U.S.
But living in a dorm requires some organization ahead of time. You will need to decide what you want to bring with you into the tight space of a dorm room. The thought about a well-sized low-footprint refrigerator will inevitably arise too. I found a good compact all refrigerator for you.
There is not much to say about doormats, isn’t it. They do their jobs to keep your shoes clean and your home as well. If you place a doormat outdoors or indoors in front of your entrance door it will have besides being practical an aesthetic value also.
I belong to those people though who don’t need to have a welcome printed onto the outdoor doormat. But I like them when I see unique prints on other people’s doormats. For me a doormat mostly needs to be practical. Here are some thoughts about what kinds of doormats are available and best for tiny homes.
Do you remember the 70s with their orange wallpapers? Orange was everywhere. My mother loved orange, so we had it all over our apartment back in Switzerland. For my taste that much orange color was just overwhelming. Today my mother’s favorite color is green, phew.
Nevertheless, don‘t hesitate to add some orange spots in your tiny house, small apartment, RV or even houseboat. It definitely will lighten up your rooms in a very sunny way. Here are some tips for you about how to use orange as design color in your home.
You know how much I love to cook. And I‘m quite particular about my kitchen‘s cleanness. After every cooking, even the tiniest usage, I like to clean off the counters, the stove, often even the microwave’s door and top.
The for me most disturbing spots in the kitchen are the gaps. The gaps between stove and counter. Crumbs for some reason have the tendency to fall exactly there into the gap and to disappear somewhere in the darkness of it. So, for me a stove counter gap cover is the solution.
My first apartment back in Switzerland had an itsy-bitsy bathroom. I almost couldn’t turn around, but it came with a medicine cabinet that was built into the wall. You know which one I’m talking about. You just see a mirror on the wall that you can open and voilà! You have some narrow shelves inside for all your toiletry items, well for most of them. These are the recessed medicine cabinets as opposed to wall-mounted ones.
The differences between the recessed medicine cabinets and the wall-mounted ones are substantial and might influence your decision which one is the better choice for your small bathroom.
Are you looking for the perfect gift for somebody moving into a tiny home, a tiny house, a small apartment or even starting full time living in an RV or houseboat? Or are you looking for yourself hoping to find the absolute unique style for your tiny home?
I have a good idea for you. Letters! Decorating with letters is a most special way to give your home that personalized style you look for. And it‘s not just because you can spell names or words of your choice with those wall art letters. The letter itself can be a piece of wall art that might even be very practical as you will see later in this post.
In hot climates or everywhere in summer for that matter people use fans to move air around and keep themselves cool. A fan is not generating cool air but it makes us feel cooler. I will get to this point later in more detail.
A portable fan could be too bulky for your tiny home, surely for a tiny house, a small apartment, RV or houseboat. In this case you might be interested in a compact window fan – those models that are thin and therefore unobtrusive for a small room, but still powerful enough to move air around.

Today I speak about a favorite theme on Little Big Life: the kitchen and how to organize space there in order to make your daily cooking a great experience. Having enough space in the kitchen is essential. But this doesn’t mean that you need a spacious kitchen. A small kitchen is in any way the better option.
A small kitchen makes you space-aware. Sooner or later you want to free your limited cabinet space from bulky pans and pots and hang them on a ceiling mount hanging pot rack.
