I like to write about items that I use myself in our tiny kitchen, even if it’s something simple like kitchen trays. Sometimes it’s the little things that make our tasks easier, that have their purpose as daily item.
There are obviously a lot of possible purposes of kitchen trays. Using a kitchen tray in the kitchen is one of them. There are many other situations in a tiny home where you’ll be happy to have a tray. The way you decide to use a tray will decide about its look and sturdiness.
I‘m a retro fan. I love just everything that comes in the retro style. But what I like the most are kitchens and kitchen appliances in retro style. Maybe because they remind me of my grandmother‘s kitchen.
Just everything goes when it comes to retro kitchen appliances: toasters, refrigerators or breakfast stations. And they come in so many colors you can‘t even count them all.
Living small doesn’t mean that you have to cut back on your favorite home tasks – such as cooking. A small kitchen might give some restrictions but you‘ll discover that those restrictions aren’t really substantial.
Despite having a small kitchen such as in an RV, Camper, boat or tiny house you still want to have those practical cooking helpers around you to create your favorite meals. A food processor definitely belongs to this category. Luckily for us passionate cooks with a small kitchen there are mini food processors available.
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.
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.
