Whether you’re crammed in a closet-sized apartment in New York City or live in an outdoor shed in California for $800 a month, you know how to live like a minimalist. For people who can’t afford to live in a modestly sized apartment or home, tiny living is an option. Buying a tiny home can also be a way for families to scale back their lifestyle by living with less and saving money in the process.
If you’ve never taken a look inside a tiny home, you might be pleasantly surprised by the chic interiors and the amount of storage space these small abodes can actually offer. From modern rustic interiors to wheelchair-accessible bathrooms, these houses have it all — in a much smaller package. These tiny homes for sale will have you considering moving in.

Named after the stately white bird that’s common in the South, the Egret is a tiny, white home that was built in Louisiana.
This Southern charmer is 20 feet long and 8 1/2 feet wide, with a painted white pine wood interior and exterior. The tiny home offers plenty of storage space inside to create a comfortable living environment for the savvy minimalist.
The Egret Tiny Home Interior: Cozy Quarters
This 170-square-foot tiny home has been around for only three short years — but don’t let its age fool you. Because this home has been lived in already by the previous owner, someone else already figured out how this small space functions best.
Store your necessities in custom cabinets under the stairs, which lead to the queen-sized loft for optimal storage space in your home and kitchen. Unique to this tiny home is the range hood that vents to the outside — so when you burn your grilled cheese, the smoke from the burnt butter will be transported outside. Conveniently, this tiny home comes with a portable dehumidifier to keep you dry all summer long. Surely, with all of these carefully planned amenities, the future owner of the Egret is sure to make this tiny home the most comfortable one yet.

Picture yourself parking your new tiny home in a lush green forest or near the beach, then relaxing on your loft bed with a cup of tea.
The Fox Tiny Home Interior: Muted Elegance
Whereas other homes on this list employ a handful of large windows to brighten up their space, this tiny home takes a more minimal approach.

The Koko 2
- Price: $97,000
The Koko 2 model could either be named after the gorilla who learned to communicate through sign language (R.I.P.) or Khloé (aka “Koko”) Kardashian. Whatever the name refers to, this tiny home is gorgeous inside and out. Instead of having a standard rectangular shape, this tiny home features a roof that varies in size and slope. The flat part of the roof is designed to make room for the loft bed and five windows that envelop your bed in morning sunshine. The exaggerated angle of the other side of the roof draws the eyes upward and makes the tiny home feel much bigger than it actually is.
The Koko 2 Tiny Home Interior: The Perfect Hiding Spot
As with almost all the other tiny homes for sale that made the list, everything in the Koko 2 is painted white to create the illusion of a bigger space. This tiny home uses black and gold accents to balance out the design of the small space, which sets it apart from all those modern rustic homes. Unique to this tiny home are three cushioned benches placed in a hexagonal common area that sits on a raised platform. The benches fold out to create a sleeping space that fits two people. Under the benches are six pull-out drawers, and there’s more storage under the floor. The modern design and gold fixtures will make you feel like the king or queen of your 256-square-foot kingdom.

Built similarly to the Koko 2, the Clover features varying roof shapes to accommodate the upper loft as well as the gable roof.

The Clover Tiny Home Interior: A Seat at the Poplar Table
The walls, floors, stairs and kitchen backsplash are covered in poplar wood. And before you turn away in disgust from the flashbacks of your ’90s living room, know that blonde wood is having a moment here. The poplar planks are light enough to open up the space in the same way that white and light gray hues would. The olive green custom cabinets and concrete countertops bring this tiny home into 2019 and beyond. Another unassuming detail from the near future that is included in this home is the washer/dryer combo unit. Yes, you read that right: It’s one machine that both washes and dries your clothes — an amazing space-saver.

The exterior of this tiny modern home is unassuming, with its long rectangular shape and shed roof. The Cocoa sits on a 20-foot custom trailer foundation.

Click through to see what the inside of this tiny home has to offer.
The Cocoa Tiny Home Interior: The Shotgun Tiny House
The design of this tiny home is narrow, like the shape of a shotgun barrel. You can see just about all of the home’s features from the doorway: The ladder to the queen-sized loft, the kitchen, the closet, the door to the bathroom and the dining area. At 160 square feet, this tiny home is teeny, but what this home lacks in square footage is made up for with custom storage solutions. The Cocoa is unique from the other tiny homes on this list: It includes 70 square feet of storage in the queen loft, whereas many of the other tiny homes don’t provide storage space in the loft.
The Wheel Pad
- Price: $75,000
Wheel Pad is a tiny homemaker company with a mission to provide homes for people with mobility issues. Wheel Pad offers a lease program starting at $1,500 a month for a minimum of three years — that’s a steal compared with the average monthly cost of a unit in an assisted-living home.

Wheel Pad will even install a connector ramp to help you safely get in and out of your home.
