Yes, I know, it sounds weird and contradictory: living in a tiny home and adding Victorian style to its decor. Probably most of you spontaneously connect Victorian style with big houses, mansions or castles. I did so too. At first glance you‘d think of the Victorian interior style as the opposite of the contemporary Zen-like style that so many people living in tiny homes love.
There are though some fascinating aspects around the Victorian style that makes it interesting for implementing it into tiny homes such as small apartments, tiny houses, RVs and houseboats. Here are some thoughts for you.

They are not very attractive or eye-pleasing but we still need them in our homes. I‘m speaking of brooms, mops, hand-held vacuums and all the other tools we need to keep our home clean. These items need a place that doesn’t take away too much space, that doesn’t disturb our need for aesthetics and that is still practical and easily accessible.
Well, a broom holder is the answer to these requirements. It keeps the cleaning tools together and is practical in use. And you can install them out of your sight such as behind a door or in a closet.

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.
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.

A dehumidifier is needed mostly in bathrooms but also in other rooms of your home when the average humidity in the air stays constantly high. Too much moisture in the air can cause mold and mildew and therefore possible health issues.
If you live in a small place, a tiny house, a small apartment, RV or houseboat you will look for a dehumidifier that doesn’t take away too much space and still is powerful enough removing excess moisture in the air.
When you’re cooking a lot like I do you look in your kitchen – may it be small or bigger – at the same surface for a long time. This surface is not just the countertop that I clean constantly but also the wall behind the oven and behind the sink. You might not notice it but this look has a strong impact on the way you feel in your kitchen.
You will however recognize it when one day you change the look of this back wall dramatically. And with dramatically I mean with adhesive backsplash tiles that come in so many looks that it’s almost overwhelming. We did it in our tiny kitchen and the effect was indeed sweeping. What looked before like a boring kinda old kitchen shines now in new glory.
