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.
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.
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.
I can’t even emphasize it enough how important clean drinking water is. Having lived in Switzerland where the tap water is extremely clean and drinkable without any filtration needed in most of the parts of the country I am very aware of the quality of the tap water in every home. If the tap water where you live isn’t as clean or has a bad taste you might need to get a water filtration system.
With a faucet mount water filtration system you don’t just assure the cleanness of your drinking and cooking water but you also are aware of its money-saving benefits. You don’t need to buy gallons and gallons of bottled water in order to be sure that you have clean water and that you can drink your daily one gallon water for your overall health.
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.

I actually started my cooking career – if I may say so – when I was about 4 years old. My father, who just loved to cook in his free time, used to pull a wooden foot stool to the kitchen counter on which I was standing and watching his cooking activities. And there on that foot stool my love for cooking got its start.
My father used his pressure cooker for almost every meal. I still remember how impressed I was as child seeing the steam gushing out through the pressure cooker’s vent on the side. I eventually inherited his old pressure cooker and used it for another 30 years, impressive isn’t it. Todays pressure cookers are so much easier to use and so much safer than those old models. And the mini pressure cookers are specifically made for small kitchens.
Speak of something that really is of multi-purpose. Maybe you wouldn’t think of a bed tray as being multi-functional. Well, I didn’t – until I started my research about these inconspicuous little items. They are so incredibly practical!
Everything that is multi-functional is in itself perfect for every tiny living. If you’re in a tiny house, small apartment, RV, camper, houseboat or small apartment you might be interested in a bed tray that’s at the same time a desk, a TV stand and much more. Let’s take a closer look at this awesome little product.
