In buying a tiny house, you have said ‘yes’ to an elevated lifestyle. You are about to live that much closer to your things, so it’s essential to pay close attention to the quality, functionality, storage, longevity, noise level, and aesthetics. We weighed all of these things when making this list, so read on to uncover your tiny house must-haves!

Indoor Air Quality

When you downsize from a traditional home into a tiny house, one thing you’ll need to start paying attention to is air quality. In a traditional home, there is a lot more room for air to circulate, but in a tiny home, air can become stuffy, stale, humid, or smelly if you don’t take action.

Indoor air quality has a huge impact on our health. And poor air quality can lead to asthma, allergies, respiratory infections, developmental problems in children, mold-related illnesses, heart disease, and even cancer! Those issues are nothing to take lightly, especially since tiny houses concentrate whatever toxins or irritants might be floating about.

Fortunately, the solutions to improving air quality are simple. You’ll want to keep moisture at bay, filter pollutants, keep dust under control, and keep your tiny home smelling fresh. And you don’t even have to research the products to do it- we’ve got your tiny house shopping list right here!

LEVOIT Home Air Purifier

LEVOIT Air Purifier for Home Allergies Pets Hair in Bedroom, Covers Up to 1095 ft² by 45W High Torque Motor, 3-in-1 Filter with HEPA sleep mode, Remove Dust Smoke Pollutants Odor, Core300-P, White
The LEVOIT Home Air Purifier is an ozone-free, high-performance HEPA filter that keeps your tiny home air fresh! It takes in air from 360 degrees and cleans spaces up to 547 square feet in just thirty minutes. The Levoit catches 99.97% of air pollutant particles and can filter dust, smoke, pollen, and odors with just its standard carbon filter! But if you want to take your air quality to the next level, the company also produces specialty filters that capture pet dander and harsher pollutants like smog, toxins, and VOCs!

DampRid Disposable Moisture Absorber Containers

Sale
DampRid Fragrance Free Disposable Moisture Absorber with Activated Charcoal, 18 oz (Pack of 3) Moisture Absorber & Odor Remover, Lasts Up To 60 Days, No Electricity Required
Even if you don’t live in a humid state, tiny houses can still collect moisture. And because moisture can lead to mold, you’ll want to stay on top of your tiny home’s levels! Just opening windows and letting the breeze do its job will help, but because most of us are out during the day or gone for the occasional weekend, it’s a good idea to use some moisture-absorbing products. We like the DampRid containers linked above because they don’t contain chemical-y scents and don’t make noise like an electric dehumidifier!

ASAKUKI Essential Oil Diffuser & Essential Oils Set

Not only do you want to keep your tiny house air free of toxins and irritants, but you also want to keep the air proactively fresh. 

ASAKUKI Essential Oil Diffuser with Essential Oils Set, 500ml Aromatherapy Diffuser – 14 LED Colors & Auto Shut-Off, Top 6 Essential Oils – Lavender Eucalyptus Tea Tree Orange Peppermint Lemongrass
Once upon a time, we used air fresheners filled with dyes and chemicals, but no more! The tiny house lifestyle is all about well-being, and that’s why we love the ASAKUKI Essential Oil Diffuser & Essential Oils Set! The diffuser has multiple misting modes and can be programmed to glow in every color! It also comes with six of the most popular essential oils on the market- all are sourced from high-quality raw materials and are cruelty-free!

Coconut-Coir Mattress Pad (Queen)

Do you want to know a tiny house not-so-fun fact? Mold often grows under mattresses placed in lofts.

This is because, in lofts, mattresses are often placed on the floor. And unfortunately, that placement doesn’t allow the underside of the mattress to breathe. This enables mold growth.

Bio Sleep Concept Coconut-Coir Mattress Pad, Queen, Breathable, Brown
Fortunately, this one is a simple fix for mold! All you have to do is place something breathable- like a Coconut-Coir Mattress Pad- between your mattress and the floor! Now you and your mattress can breathe easily!

Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Lithium Ion Cordless Hand Vacuum

Do you know how you find a lot of dog hair in your regular-sized house? Well, the tiny home lifestyle has a lot of benefits, but the concentration of pet hair could get worse.

Lola is cute, though, so why don’t you keep her, and we’ll just help you choose the right small space vacuum?

We want your tiny home experience to be a breeze, so we selected a cordless hand vacuum that’s big enough to clean the whole house but small enough to whip around for a quick tidy. It’s even specially designed for pet hair!

Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Lithium Ion Cordless Hand Vacuum, Purple
Fortunately, this one is a simple fix for mold! All you have to do is place something breathable- like a Coconut-Coir Mattress Pad- between your mattress and the floor! Now you and your mattress can breathe easily!

Entertainment

Just because you’ve decided to commit to a simple life doesn’t mean it has to be boring! In fact, we find that a simpler lifestyle actually makes us enjoy our favorite pastimes even more.

Do you know what else we enjoy even more? Well, honestly, kind of everything! The tiny house lifestyle is about quality over quantity, and we appreciate the things we own even more as a result of this shift.

But anyway, back to entertainment! Our team did the research to find the very best products to fulfill your tiny home entertainment needs. And we are so excited to share them with you!

Are you a music person? A movie buff? Or maybe a bookworm? Whoever you are, you will love our tiny house dream list of entertainment options! 

Oh, and here’s a pro tip: forward this page to a friend, so they know what to buy you when the gift-giving mood strikes!

YABER 1080P 5G Bluetooth Projector

Do you know what pairs really well with tiny homes? Movie projectors.

This is because they add the drama of a movie theater experience when used, and their screens discreetly roll away when the show’s over.

Projector with WiFi and Bluetooth, 13000L Outdoor Movie Projector Native 1080P 5G WiFi 4K Supported, YABER V6 Portable Home Theater Projector, 300″ Display 4P Keystone 50% Zoom Compatible with Phone
There are many projectors on the market, but we choose the YABER 1080P 56 Bluetooth Projector because of its quality and flexibility. This projector is compatible with HDMI cables and Amazon Firesticks, but if you really want to enjoy simple living, the YABER’s Bluetooth technology will allow you to cast media straight from your devices!

Pyle PRJSM7206 Universal 72-Inch Roll-Down Projection Screen

If you plan to turn your tiny house into a movie theater, you will definitely need an impressive screen to pair with your projector!

Pyle Manual Pull-Down Projector Screen – Universal 72-inch Roll-Down Retractable Manual Projection Screen w/ Auto-Locking, Adjustable Screen Height, Black Masking Border – 42.5″ x 56.6″ PRJSM7206
Here at TinyLivingLife.com, we like to keep simple living simple. That’s why the Pyle PRJSM7206 Universal 72-Inch Roll-Down Projection Screen is our top choice for movie projection screens! OK, OK, the product’s name isn’t that simple, but trust us, the wall-mount installation will be easy-peasy! So what are you waiting for? Fire up that Amazon Firestick because it’s time to Netflix and chill.

Kindle Paperwhite Essentials Bundle

Do you love books? So do we! But now that you plan to buy a tiny house, it’s time to be strategic about this.

Fortunately, the Kindle Paperwhite Essentials Bundle is here to pack an entire library into your tiny living room!

So what do you like to read? Maybe books about how to design a tiny home? We’re just kidding. (Kind of!) But whatever you enjoy, this Kindle bundle will allow you to enjoy all the books you want while keeping your home clutter-free!

Harman Kardon Aura Studio 3 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker

Small-space living tends to heighten your senses. You will see more of your home’s details, take note of the scent in your diffuser, and hear things more acutely.

This is why if music is important to you, you’ll want to have an especially good sound system! 

Sale
Harman Kardon Aura Studio 3 – Elegant, BT Wireless Speaker with Premium Design and Ambient Lighting- Black
Our top choice for enjoying music in a tiny home living room is the Harman Kardon Aura Studio 3 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker. How does crystal clear work for you? We thought so. Just be careful with the bass. If the neighbors in your tiny home community complain, don’t say we didn’t warn you!

American Tourister 4 Kix Underseater Suitcase

Good thing you discovered the tiny home movement because now your lifestyle is significantly cheaper! So what are you going to do with all the extra money?

If your answer is ‘travel more,’ then we recommend you use the link above to get yourself an American Tourister 4 Kix Underseater Suitcase! That way, you’ll be ready to hop on a plane at a moment’s notice.

Kitchen

Have you ever heard the phrase kitchens and bathrooms sell houses? It’s because they do! They are two of the most crucial rooms in a house!

So if you have a tiny home kitchen to stock, you’ll want to pay close attention to the list below.

We’ve searched carefully to find you multi-function, high-quality kitchenware that will make you feel like a top chef in your tiny space. 

We also tried to find visually appealing items because we know how important it is for frequently used items to remain accessible. We wanted to recommend things that would look good on the counter!

Alright, are you ready? It’s time to build your tiny dream kitchen!

Secura Stainless Steel Insulated French Press

If coffee is important to you, you’ll want to think through your tiny house morning routine because your old coffee maker might not make the cut in your small kitchen!

K-cups won’t work because they fill up your tiny house trashcan too quickly. And a regular coffee machine will take up too much space on the counter. (And be too cumbersome to put away every morning!)

Sale
Secura French Press Coffee Maker, 304 Grade Stainless Steel Insulated Coffee Press with 2 Extra Screens, 34oz (1 Litre), Black
For all the reasons above, we recommend you get a Secura Stainless Steel Insulated French Press. It will allow you to enjoy a simple lifestyle that never requires buying pods or filters again. This unit also saves space, looks great on the counter, and is insulated to keep you and your coffee cozy on cold winter mornings!

BJPKPK 2-Pack Stainless Steel Camping Mugs

Speaking of cold mornings, the winter months can be a touch chillier in a tiny home than in a traditional one!

So why not prepare by having sleek, insulated mugs? In the summer, you can use them for camping, and in the winter, you will never have to worry about your coffee getting cold before you can drink it.

Sale
BJPKPK 14oz Coffee Mug with Handle 2 Pack,Stainless Steel Insulated Coffee Mug with Splash Proof Lid-Turquoise,14oz(410ml),CM14Turquoise
These BJPKPK 2-Pack Stainless Steel Camping Mugs come in a ton of colors, so you can match your tiny home decor perfectly!

Ninja BL770 Mega Kitchen System Blender & Food Processor

If you plan to buy a tiny house, let us politely suggest that you purchase kitchen tools with multiple functions. 

And to that end, let us introduce you to the Ninja BL770 Mega Kitchen System! It’s a blender and food processor in one! 

Sale
Ninja BL770 Mega Kitchen System, 1500W, 4 Functions for Smoothies, Processing, Dough, Drinks & More, with 72-oz.* Blender Pitcher, 64-oz. Processor Bowl, (2) 16-oz. To-Go Cups & (2) Lids, Black
We love this system because it works well. But we also appreciate it for its space-saving qualities! There is just a single base, but it comes with attachments to make an individual smoothie, a huge batch of margaritas, or slice and dice your way to any simple meal you can imagine!

Tablecraft Oil & Vinegar Set

We already brought up that counter space is limited in a tiny house kitchen. So why would we suggest you buy decorative bottles to display your oil and vinegar instead of keeping them in a cabinet?

The answer is in pursuit of simple living. 

Things you will use frequently (like oil and vinegar) are best left accessible if you want cooking to be seamless.

And since these items will live on your counter, you’ll want them to match your tiny home style! 

And so, on that note, how sleek is the Tablecraft Oil & Vinegar set?!

Tablecraft Oil Vinegar Set and Stainless Steel Pourers with Black Chrome Plated Rack, 16 oz, Clear
  • Provide a stylish Oil and Vinegar serving presentation
  • Bottles and pourers are easy to clean, dishwasher safe; Rack is hand wash recommended

Sweet Home Collection Dish Drying Rack

Just in case your tiny home doesn’t come with a tiny house dishwasher, we wanted to be sure to tell you about the Sweet Home Collection Dish Drying Rack.

Sale
Sweet Home Collection Dish Drainer Drain Board and Utensil Holder Simple Easy to Use, 17″ x 12″ x 5″, Black
There are many dish-drying racks out there, but this one is our top pick for tiny kitchens. The reason is that the water drainage point is on the long side of the tray, unlike many others on the market. You might have to check out the link to understand what we mean, but we think you’ll agree that this subtle difference will save you a ton of valuable counter space!

Furniture & Decor

You already know that tiny homes are small. But what does this have to do with furniture and decor? 

Well, furniture is big, and decor is not technically essential, so it’s important to be judicious with these things!

When we compiled the list below, we had two goals. First, we wanted to suggest things that would bring your tiny home design dreams to life, and second, we wanted them to serve a purpose!

We think we accomplished those goals and are pretty proud of this list, but we’ll let you be the final judge!

South Shore Live-It Sofa-Bed with Storage

Like we said about kitchenware, items with multiple functions are helpful in a tiny house!

That’s why we were so excited to discover the South Shore Live-It Sofa-Bed with Storage!

South Shore Live-It Cozy Sectional Sofa-Bed with Storage, Gray Fog
Not only does this sofa-bed come in a soothing fog color, but its size makes it the perfect small-space couch! The South Shore Sofa also has two essential benefits: it provides storage for bulky items and a place for Aunt Wanda to sleep!

SIMPLIHOME Rockwood Cube Storage Ottoman

If you live in a small space, you need a SIMPLIHOME Rockwood Cube Storage Ottoman! They serve so many functions!

Obviously, they can be used as footstools, but if you buy two, you can push them against your couch and turn your sofa into a day bed!

Sale

The hooks keep coats dry and accessible, and the baskets hide clutter while giving family members separate places to house their most-used items.
