Want a Tidy, Tiny Home? Heed These Rules!
If you live in a tiny home, you know it’s hard to avoid clutter especially if you have a lot of possession. Small spaces tend to look messy too though the plus side of it is that they are also easy and fast to clean. But you don’t want to spend your time cleaning, right? So check out these three tips on how to make your tiny home tidy from real examples.
Tip 1: Stick to a similar colour theme
Imagine a tiny home with chock-full of colours everywhere – talk about chaos! With just one or a similar colour theme throughout, you are creating a unifying concept for your home that makes it look neat.
Like this 69 sqm condo with a cool grey theme. This popular colour theme gives this tiny space a sleek appeal that’s modern and sleek.

Tip 2: Have just enough storage for your belonging
The more storage you have, the more likely you are to try and fill it up with things. In the case of a tiny home, refrain from having more storage than necessary. First, learn to declutter.
Then think of storage in places where you need them, like this charming tiny apartment in Telok Blangah. Keep your storage space neat and in order so that your belongings are all grouped together. You don’t have to fill it all up with things.

Or, pick a tip or two from this 1-bedder unit; despite its size, it does not go overboard with creating storage spaces. Think unobtrusive space that gels with the design of the rest of the house.

If you really want to do away with clutter, opt for hidden storage space like this homeowner. This way, your clutter remains unseen and your tiny home stays neat. Or go for storage space that’s part of your furniture, like within your bed frame as seen in this apartment.

Tip 3: Flush carpentry to the sides
It’s amazing what a little bit of illusion optical can do to the mind – like how when you flush all carpentry to the sides, your tiny home immediately looks orderly and neat. The lines create a minimalist and clean look, which adds to the tidy factor.
You can make storage space part of the carpentry as well like this home. Go for a mix of open and hidden storage space for a little bit of creativity.
