Le Koroc is a beautifully handcrafted tiny houseboat built by Richard’s company, Daigno, in Quebec, Canada.
From the outside, it’s hard to believe there’s a full kitchen, a full bathroom (with shower), a large dinette that converts into a bed, and another smaller eating area crammed into this micro cabin. Not to mention the enormous deck for enjoying the water and fresh air!

If you’re thinking about living in a tiny house or even just downsizing to a smaller house, you’ve probably been thinking about space-saving tiny house furniture… And today I wanted to show you this sofa that converts into a bunk bed in just a few seconds.
It’s a foreign product that’s probably really expensive and completely unobtainable for those of us like you and me who want to live simply so we can also live affordably. But either way- I thought it was worth sharing because who knows? It might inspire somebody to create a DIY version- with a how-to- that’s more affordable (crossing my fingers).

I’m always on the lookout for space-saving furniture for tiny homes. In this post, I’m excited to show you the Quad Micro Bar by Joe Warren. If you’ve been looking for a dining table solution that doesn’t take up that much room…
Whether you are living in a tiny house, micro apartment, or any other small space. It’s a really cool solution in my opinion because it doubles as a stand-up table and bar stool table. And the stools are really easy to put away. Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments.

I urge you to learn more about how it works and how you might be able to get one in the video and links below:
A 200-year old townhouse in the historic Leiden, Netherlands lands a make-over and is turned into a modern minimalist home with history.
The original structure remains the same while the interior has been stripped and re-vamped with multifunctional furniture and a twisting staircase to get to each of the three levels.
Total square footage on this 17th-century neatly stacked townhouse is 807 square feet.
Wooden furniture is built-in on each level to provide storage, seating, desk, lounge areas, bedding, and more.
This open plan three story townhouse is functional, yet simple, which keeps the house’s original character.

When it comes to living in a tiny house we have to get creative.
Some of us don’t want to go up a ladder and into a loft, so we create amazing staircases.
But what if you don’t want to go up any sort of stairs or ladders?
In these cases you can consider murphy beds, futons, micro bedrooms, or…
You can consider one of the 3 amazing (and pricey) hidden, space-saving beds for small spaces featured in this post.
1. Espace Loggia’s Electric Air Bed: Transforms your Bedroom to Dining/Work Area
At night when the bed is in sleep position, your room is a simple bedroom. But when you wake up, you can transform the living space into a dining room, work area or just more open space. Check it out below:
Earlier this year I showed you this garage that was converted into a small modern house.
It’s unique because of it’s multifunctional interior design. But also because it was originally an unwanted and abandoned garage.
There are sliding doors that can optionally cover the entire house, giving the resident maximum privacy.
Even when it’s all closed up it’s designed so that natural light still comes in because of the porch and glass sliding doors. You’ll have to see it to get it.
It’s 430-485 square feet depending on if you include the patio area and the upstairs bedroom.
Inside there’s a large custom made piece of wooden furniture, designed by the architect, that provides nearly all of the functionality for the home.
The large box inside serves as a…
- Storage space
- Sofa bed
Without that unique piece, it would be nearly impossible to fit all of these features in the home while maintaining the openness that it has right now.

Small space furniture helps you create more storage with the same square footage thanks to smart design.
That’s why I went to visit my local Murphy Bed Center.
Also known as the More Space Place.
Surprisingly I hardly ever see many people utilizing Murphy beds in small spaces.
Maybe it’s because of the price, I don’t know.
But either way they seem to be a great solution for your tiny or small house.
Thanks to multipurpose furniture like this you’re able to…
- Hide your bed up against the wall when you’re not using it
- Bring down a desk that was otherwise hidden
- Turn your living room into a guest bedroom
The possibilities can be endless. So here’s what I found while I was there.
This is a really nice piece of furniture that can be great for guests.
