2D Floor Plans
2D tiny home plans are important for seeing the overall layout. They show walls, doors, and windows, as well as furnishings and measurements that help clients understand how the space is used. But since so much is fit into such a small space, it’s best to have more than just 2D floor plans.

With modern software like Cedreo, 2D tiny home floor plans get instantly converted into 3D floor plans. These plans show the 3D layout from an aerial view in full color along with surface materials, furniture, and decorations. For clients, their tiny home starts to take shape when they see the 3D plans.
It’s one thing to see a layout from above, it’s another to see it as if you were inside. That’s where photorealistic visualizations come in. Show clients how their tiny bathroom, kitchen, multi-use area, or loft will look in real life. Programs like Cedreo create renderings in just 5 minutes with realistic details that don’t leave anything to the imagination.

Because of the limited space, you have to work with, tiny home plans can be difficult to create. Here are 4 key things to keep in mind so your layouts can meet your clients’ needs.
It all starts with the foundation. Will it be mobile or stationary? If it’s a tiny house built on solid ground, then you have a lot more flexibility when it comes to the layout. But if you’re designing a tiny home on wheels (THOW), then you’re confined to the size of the trailer and transportation laws.
Number of occupants
The next factor that’ll impact a tiny house floor plan is how many people will be living there. More people means more sleeping areas, and sleeping areas take up a lot of space. Also, with more people in the house at once, you’ll need to leave extra space for getting around.
Space and layout
When it comes to the home’s space and layout, it’s important to have a clear understanding of your client’s needs and wants. That’ll help you create a tiny house layout that fits their lifestyle. For example:
- Do they like to cook? Then leave extra space for kitchen counters and storage.
- Do they work from home? Don’t forget to include a productive workspace.
- Do they have pets? Remember to add an area for things like pet beds or litter boxes.
Loft or single level
Tiny homes with a loft make excellent use of space. However, there can be some drawbacks like climbing a ladder to access the loft and limited headroom. Single levels are nice for single people or couples who don’t want to hassle with climbing up and down a ladder to get in bed. And without a loft, you can have a taller ceiling in a smaller trailer which makes the space feel more open.
