6 Tiny House Kitchen Arrangements

Here are all the configurations I’ve thought of for my 8×10 tiny house kitchen.

Priorities:

  • Window: I want to see if I can avoid having a vent over the stove. So the stove needs to be by a window (and fan) that I can open when there is smoke.
  • Mini Fridge: I’m pretty set on using a mini fridge. For the past few months I’ve been keeping track of how I use the fridge and mini fridge has all the space I need.

1. Best Litte House in Texas

My favorite part of this arrangement is the storage that seamlessly doubles as a staircase. It’s like climbing on your dresser to climb to your bunked bed in your freshman dorm. The appliances are grouped together to one side and the other side is storage and counter space.

2. Tiny Heirloom: Luxury tiny house kitchen

If you are wanting to downsize without compromising on quality kitchen appliances, check out this tiny house. This kitchen is only about 4 feet wide.

3. Green Luxury Tiny House

This tiny kitchen has it all. It features the following: “stove, granite countertops, pantry drawer, instant hot water, water filter in sink faucet, pasta arm above stove, and a sleek apartment sized fridge.”  >> Tiny House Listings.

I don’t know what a pasta arm is. But I think I want one.

4. Yosemite Tiny House

What about skipping the range and using a toaster oven and hot plate? Many tiny houses have decided to skip the traditional range and make do with a toaster oven and hot plate.

Thoughts? Always consider fire safety and all that.

I like how this tiny house uses the counter as a bar and skips the table and chairs. The big window pretty great also.

5. Vagabode

Floating island? This tiny house kitchen layout is a great example of what it means to optimize space.

6. The Modern Farmhouse

Great rustic style and use of staircase storage. Also, with a little ingenuity I could probably reach food without getting of bed. Priorities.

Can’t make your layout work? Here are some things to consider:

1. Smaller appliances.

Let’s consider smaller appliances. I love finding cute little washing machines and ovens on Pinterest. Would they be practical in real life? My argument would be yes.

Neil Caffery got by just fine. Check out this Wedgewood stove rang from White Collar. It’s quaint without compromising  luxury or looks and doesn’t take up much space.

Caffery seems to enjoy it.

Even when he is deep in thoughts of forgery.

2. Tiny House vs. Regular Kitchen

There is an argument to be made for smaller kitchen. Less walking. Less losing stuff and having to buy it again. Less realizing you actually have 12 cans of tomato soup.

To be fair, the big kitchen can hold lots of things like that fine china you only use maybe twice a year. – Do you really need an additional set of expensive plates?

Thanks for reading!
