3 Modern Tiny Homes That Are Big on Style

Modern tiny homes offer an excellent way to combine the simplicity that tiny homes offer with the modern feel of a luxury home that many crave. These homes prove that you can easily downsize and still have a space that is both comfortable and contemporary.

The Ultimate Rustic and Modern Combination

Our first home is the perfect combination of rustic and modern and is designed and built by Zook Cabins. It’s around 12 feet wide and 38 feet long and stands out because of its sloping roof and front patio, which make it a perfect fit for someone who is looking to spend more time outdoors without skimping on style.

As you can see the home has a split unit installed. We have had many questions regarding these units and recently discussed the difference between these and traditional ac units. You can read more about that here: What’s the Difference between a Window AC & a Split AC?

Not much of a kitchen, unfortunately.
A floor plan helps give an idea of the true dimensions.

The Fox

  • Our second modern tiny home is a custom home designed and built by Modern Tiny Living. This home is a 28 ft. x 8.5 ft. tiny house but has all the features of a full-size designer home including:
  • designer gourmet kitchen
  • a subway-tiled walk-in shower with a glass door
  • washer/dryer
  • queen loft
  • shiplap walls
  • custom stairs with built-in storage

We could definitely see ourselves embracing the tiny home movement with a modern tiny home like this!

You can still have all the luxury you crave even in a small space.

Custom Created Tiny Home

Our last home is a 450-square-foot home that we found on Houzz. We have to say, as soon as we saw it we fell in love, it definitely takes tiny home living to a whole new level! The home uses solar power and the whole building process was very environmentally friendly which was very important to the homeowners.

Just like in many manufactured homes, many design tricks were used to make the home appear larger. One such trick was the use of multi-functional furniture. Also, light colors were used throughout to give the appearance of a larger space.

The space feels much larger than it truly is.
Plenty of space for a king-size bed.
A full-size shower graces the bath.

This is our kind of tiny home living.
