52 Tiny Houses with Downstairs Bedrooms!


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!

    Of all the Tiny Houses listed today, I liked best the Orchid from Frontier Homes, and the BOHO XL. I must say that one I did not see here is listed in my Bookmarks because it could sit my whole family for seating on special days. It also had stairs and I could sleep down if I needed to. Although, I did not see a W/D in it though and do not want all those high cabinets, bottom 2 just fine. All in a dream!!! 🙂

        Hi Alex, This model that I had put in my bookmarks was the:
        Rivendell THOW by Modern Tiny Living! The color of the seating and on the cabinets is gorgeous. I believe I have this correct. Thank you for the comment response, take care Alex! 🙂

  • August 5, 2020, 3:53 pm

    Natalie I love it when you and Alex put out a group of like units for us to compare and dream about, this selection was very informative and stimulating. It even got me thinking of waterborn options again and how most of my designs would work in waterway areas just mounted on a barge, some of the barges can even have tankage under for moving water and raising and lowering the profile as well as sea worthiness in High Wind times. We need these so the future of housing can be both smaller and flexible as environments and economies are REALLY going to change fast for the younger set. Keep up the great work.

    A lot of great configurations here but you missed one. Ours! We built in 2018, sourcing the shell from engineering firm #ZeroSquared Located in Calgary,Alberta and having the finish work done by ICanBuildItLLP in Hagerstown, MD in time for filming for the 5th season (episode 5) of the Tiny House Nation show. We had 60 days from the time we were contacted by the producers to the time that the cameras were rolling so a very intense time. We have been living in it full time since December 2019 after taking it to FL when efforts to locate it in the Annapolis, MD area fell through. Loving the tiny life! The Murphy bed folds up and the area becomes my office as I am blessed to be able to work remotely as part of the sustainable lifestyle. Thanks! Phil and Karen
