How to Furnish your Compact Home

Countryside's Guide to Furnishing Tiny Homes

Individuals and families alike are ditching their generously-sized homes for the newly popular tiny house. Be it for the simpler lifestyle or reduced environmental impact, the decision to scale down has proved an effective solution for many.

For some, the allure of the micro home has come from a need to accommodate returning adult children or in-laws. Others transform this compact space into a home office, man cave or the more recent, “she shed.”

For those willing to reduce their square footage, we offer the following furniture pieces. Each is constructed to optimize space, perfect for your tiny abode.
