While climbing into the top bunk might have been fun when we were kids, it’s much less appealing as an adult. Loft bedrooms are a great option in tiny houses because they allow for maximization of space, BUT they have their drawbacks — especially if you have any mobility issues.
That’s why we decided to compile a list some of the best tiny houses with downstairs bedroom options we could find! We made a similar list back in 2016, but we wanted to make a part two with 52 more awesome examples of ground-floor sleeping options. From Murphy Beds to slide-out beds to full bedrooms, you’ll find it all in the list below!
Let us know which one is your favorite!

Mustard Seed Tiny Homes still sells their Everest model with its amazing ground-floor bedroom with huge closet! This room is large enough you can walk all around the queen-sized bed.
I tried not to include too many goosenecks in this list because they do require steps to get to the bedroom, but this home has such amazing storage it’s worth looking at for ideas. Plus you can fully stand up in the bedroom and walk all the way around the bed.
Besides being absolutely gorgeous, this home manages to fit a downstairs bedroom into just 26 feet, without compromising on a spacious living area. Plus it’s a new design you can get built right now from Tru Form Tiny.
Matt’s tiny house features a spacious main-floor bedroom design. It really doesn’t even look like you’re in a tiny house on wheels, right?
Park models can get a bad rap, but if you find the right company and location, they’re an awesome option for tiny living. At 400 square feet, you get more space to fit in that ground-floor bedroom without feeling cramped. Take this lovely retirement home for example!
ESCAPE has a number of awesome tiny house models with downstairs bedrooms, and the BOHO XL Wide is just one example. This has a great studio feel that works well for a single person or couple.
This is an affordable tiny house with a main floor bedroom called the Dragonfly tiny house. It’s a 34.5-foot tiny home built on a trailer by Core Housing Solutions. It’s built with structurally insulated panels which give you great insulation, a strong build, and lighter overall weight.
This is the Firefly Tiny House on Wheels. It’s built by Core Housing Solutions as a “truly affordable tiny house” out of Leesburg, Florida for $32,000. It even has a main floor bedroom. What do you think?
While this bed does require setting up each evening, this home was worth a spot on the list because of its amazing use of space. At just 120 square feet, it includes everything you need plus a hide-away bathroom.
This is the story of Frank’s micro cabin on wheels. He built it in all of about two months, doing all of the work himself, and using sustainable materials from his area in western North Carolina.
It was built in 2018 and features approximately 319.5 sq. ft. of space inside.
I built this to eventually be a rental so everything I built with, will last 30 years. A metal roof, high end vinyl siding, Trex decking, vinyl floors.
This is the Summer’s Night Dream Tiny House on Wheels by Teacup Tiny Homes.
Besides the amazing full shower, this THOW features a cool hide-away bed that rolls out from behind the couch when it’s time to sleep. Haven’t seen this much and it’s such a cool system!
Want a separate bedroom? This ESCAPE BOHO XL model has the room partitioned off with a sliding barn door so the bedroom can be a secluded oasis (or, you know, you can leave the bed unmade and not feel guilty).
By combining two tiny houses, Amanda was able to get not one, not two, but three downstairs bedrooms in her home! Her room is one tiny and her girls each have a bedroom in the other THOW.
It’s a 22ft tiny house with with a main floor bedroom, additional loft, fold down deck, and more.
This little teardrop-shaped home has an upstairs loft bedroom for guests, but the now-retired Sylvie wanted her twin-sized bed on the ground floor. Love the round window view!
I absolutely love this little vacation home on an island built by the owners of Tiffany the Tiny House. It’s an octagonal home, which makes for a super unique interior.
We don’t see many tiny homes with Murphy beds and I’m not entirely sure why. That said, this retirement home makes great use out of one which doubles as a desk when folded up.
This is the EverGreen Tiny Cottage at Tuckah Farms in North Carolina. It’s built on a foundation with a screened-in porch. It also has a pretty awesome outdoor shower. What do you think? Could a tiny home like this be the right fit for you?
Kanga Room Systems makes some of the best smaller foundation homes around, and I love their layout and size options. This gem has a spacious ground-floor bedroom in addition to a great loft room.
Like I said, Kanga Room Systems knows how to do a little home. Another stunning bedroom in this larger farmhouse model. What’s cool is you can buy these homes turnkey, or as shells to save money.
Had to include at least one cool shipping container home in this list. The couple uses a bookshelf to separate their bedroom from the rest of their home, and it works well! Plus they have a crazy solar system, so check all that out in the post!
This is what we would call a big tiny house because it’s a 572-sq.-ft. space with a one bedroom, one bathroom layout built to IRC code featuring a spacious main-floor bedroom.
Talk about an alternative dwelling! This is a home created by a 3D Printer! It features a gorgeous ground floor Master bedroom and really neat curved lines (because why not?).
Despite being just 290 square feet, this modern marvel includes two downstairs bedrooms in a sci-fi home. The floor plan shows you the full layout, but you’ll want to see the pictures here.
This little foundation home is stunning. It was designed by the couple that now rents it out; and it features both a ground-floor bed, and a loft bedroom. It’s somehow modern and cozy at the same time, and you’ll want to see all the windows.
At 855 square feet, this vacation yurt definitely isn’t tiny, but it does feature two ground-floor bedrooms and gives you an idea of how to lay out a round space. Yurts come in just about any size, so you can always shrink it down to “tiny.”
This home does have a gooseneck master bedroom and a loft bedroom, but it makes the list because of its innovative bunk bed room with bunks embedded into a slide-out. Brilliant work, Tiny Idahomes!
This home is too cool not to earn a spot on the list. It’s innovative “wings” allow the home to fold out to nearly double it’s closed up size, and supplies a twin-sized sleeping area across from the kitchen. Plus it was handcrafted!
While it’s shown unfurnished in this picture, the ground-floor bedroom in this THOW has enough space for a queen-sized bed. It’s also adjacent to the bathroom which is great for those middle-of-the-night trips to the toilet.
This tiny home doesn’t just have a downstairs Master bedroom, it has a kids’ bunkbed room as well! Made from part of a lifeguard stand, it’s a clever little vacation home.
This is the story (and tour) of Bruce and Shari’s tiny house with a main floor bedroom. It’s the Dragonfly model from Core Housing Solutions which starts at $39,500 – it’s probably the most affordable 34.5-foot tiny house on wheels you can find and it’s built with SIP panels.
Want to live life on the water? This floating home by Ninebark Design Build is sleek and modern, and features a downstairs bedroom with huge windows to give you the best view.
This 28-ft. THOW by Rewild Homes has a main-floor bedroom that features a small bed, wardrobe, and a desk. It’s the perfect little bedroom, isn’t it? It also has a full kitchen, two lofts, and more…
This is the Laurier Tiny House on Wheels by Minimaliste. It’s a 365-square-feet tiny home that’s 10-feet wide and 32-feet long. As you may already know, Minimaliste designs and builds modern and very comfortable tiny houses thanks to the extra width they’re willing to build.
Because these granny flats are classified as alternative dwelling units in Australia, they can be put up in backyards legally. Now, of course, you still need someone’s backyard, but if you have family that wouldn’t mind, this a great choice!
While the interior of this home is modern and simple, the exterior couldn’t be funkier! Love all the character. This shipping container home has the ground floor bedroom separated from the rest of the house.
This stunning build by Modern Tiny Living features two ground-floor bedrooms — one in the main living area, and another as a separate bedroom. The entire luxury THOW is gorgeous.
This Magenta tiny home was built very inexpensively, and while extra tiny, it features a couch-to-bed in the main living area with no loft-climbing necessary. It should inspire us all to think tiny!
This is a Boho XL Wide located on lot #1 at Escape Tampa Bay Tiny House Village. This is a one-level tiny house with a walk-around bed. It’s very nice!
While this is a vacation spot, it’s layout is still entirely practical for full-time living with a functional kitchen and bathroom. It features a bed in the main living area, with huge picture windows to take in the views.
This home is no longer for sale, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get some inspiration from the lovely ground-floor sleeping area. This THOW has a studio-style set-up, with no separation between spaces.
Here’s another open-concept tiny house with a ground-floor bedroom on one side. It has a fancy modern feel inside and one entire side of the home is glass. Take some inspiration!
I just love this bed cubby! This home has an igloo-like style with cool curvature, and the bedroom really feels like you’re sleeping in a wooden igloo. What do you think?
Ending this list with a Murphy Bed, because I still think it’s one of the better ways to get ground floor sleeping in a tiny house. It doesn’t take up space during the day, and doesn’t require a lot of set up or take down.
This is a two bedroom tiny house on wheels. More specifically, it’s a two bed, two bath mobile home built like a cabin by Escape. The home is parked on lot number six at the Escape Tampa Bay Tiny House Village and features a large rear deck accessible via glass slider. The Escape Space CLASSIC shed pairs nicely with it as a guest house or office, doesn’t it?
This is the Nora Tiny House by Go Tiny. It’s a tiny home built onto a 28-foot drop axle trailer with approximately 240-square-feet of space inside.
This is a 32-foot Farmhouse tiny house on wheels with a main-floor bedroom for $88,000. It’s built by Liberation Tiny Homes.
