Even in an everyday large home, storage can sometimes come at a premium. Things are ten times smaller and therefore ten times tougher to do in a tiny house. One of the great things to come out of the tiny house movement is the unique ways that people have come up to find more room in their tiny space. Here are some examples of brilliant tiny house storage ideas.

Probably one of the most talked about places in a tiny house is the storage under the stairs. Pullouts, closets, and drawers are all very popular ways to take advantage of the under-stair storage. The beauty is that you can hide as much of it as you want by fronting the cubbies with doors or leaving them open.
We get asked about this type of storage a lot and although it is not a good choice for most, you will see many people still use it. The difficulty with under floor storage is keeping the area insulated, trying not to bottom the home out on the ground and making sure that you go between the crossbeams of the trailer. Still, if you can make all of that work, there are places for you to hide away some things right under your feet. So where are you planning on storing all of your stuff in your tiny home?
