A normal room can be treated as one, fairly unified, space. It is used for a limited set of purposes. For example, a dining room is used for dining and gathering.
On the other hand, a tiny house no bigger than many dining rooms may contain many diverse uses in one space. The lighting can serve to highlight these uses rather than making the house seem like one unified (fairly small) room.
If you’ve decided against unnecessary partitions, then lighting can create the feel of separate, intimate spaces without physically chopping the interior up into separate rooms.
There are two basic types of lighting to consider: daylighting and artificial lighting. Last week’s post was about daylighting; today, we’ll look at artificial lighting and the ways it can work for you.
I bet you’re wondering where the heck tiny house people put their clothes?!
That’s easy. They don’t have a lot.
Before you toss in the towel as you have no idea how you’re going to pick a complete wardrobe from an entire closet and dresser(s) of clothes, relax.
Other people have done it. I’ve done it. You can do it.
I used to have two dressers, a full closet, and several boxes in the attic. And I don’t even like fashion!
Now, with the exception of some boots and coats, all my clothes can be packed into a couple of gym bags.
My goal is to get everything in one bag. Your goal might be similar. Or maybe you just want to get rid of the dresser.
The fun part about clothes is that no one has the exact same wardrobe. We all have different lives that require different types of apparel. For example, I have four pairs of boots: cowboy boots for line dancing (don’t judge), waterproof winter boots, everyday sweater boots, and a classy pair of boots with heels for dress-up occasions. To some people, that’s a lot. To me, it’s just right for where I am in my life.
