One of the many benefits of tiny home living is that it encourages you to spend more time outside. Extending your living space to the outdoors can help you enjoy your home even more. Here are some tips to maximize your tiny home outdoor living space:
Set Up Outdoor Lighting
Enjoy the outdoors around the clock with semi-permanent outdoor lighting. String some lights between posts, add a fire pit, install tiki torches, or add freestanding lighting fixtures around seating areas.
Build a Spacious Patio
Extend your home’s square footage with an attached patio or desk. Many of our tiny home models at Utopian Villas feature decks or enclosed porches or sunrooms. Or, if you already have a tiny home, adding a patio is fairly quick and easy.
Opt for a Rooftop Deck
Take advantage of vertical real estate with a rooftop deck. It’s great for growing fresh vegetables, hosting gatherings, or just relaxing in your favorite hammock. Add a table for alfresco dining, use it for extra storage, or turn it into a project space.
Include a Mini Bar
Tiny homes can be great for social gatherings, even if you can’t all fit in the same room at the same time. Adding an outdoor mini bar to your tiny home gives people a place to gather and enjoy each other’s company, plus it frees up space in your kitchen.
Add Plenty of Seating
You’re more likely to enjoy the outdoors when you’re comfortable. Invest in some outdoor furniture and seating so you’ll have a place to play, relax, and have fun. Install a canopy or retractable awning to sit outside in any kind of weather!
