2D Tiny House 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.

6 Important Tiny House Floor Plan Considerations

Because of the limited space, you have to work with, tiny home plans can be difficult to create.
Here are 6 key things to keep in mind so your layouts can meet your clients’ needs.

Foundation icon


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.

Access Multi-Level Planning icon

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.

Foundation or House on Wheels

It’s important to know upfront if the tiny home needs to be mobile or if it will be staying in one location. A mobile tiny home will have to fit on a trailer, which limits its size. A tiny home staying in one place means a foundation will need to be accounted for.

Outdoor Living Space

When living with limited indoor space, outdoor living space becomes an important factor. Consider adding a covered outdoor patio that can be used even when the weather isn’t ideal. Or take advantage of your square footage by adding a rooftop patio.

Tiny House Floor Plan FAQs

Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about tiny houses.

How big is a typical tiny house floor plan?

A tiny house can really be any size your client wants it to be, but a typical tiny home is between 60 and 400 square feet.

How much space should a bathroom take up on a tiny house floor plan?

The rule of thumb for the bathroom footprint should be approximately 25% of the ground floor footage, which should be about 25 – 50 sq ft.

Is it less expensive to have a tiny house on wheels or with a foundation?

Generally, a tiny house on a foundation costs less over time. The wear and tear are much more significant on a mobile tiny home, so upkeep can be costly.

What size kitchen is best for a tiny home?

For an average-sized tiny home, the kitchen usually takes up about 70-80 sq feet. Obviously, this is very small compared to traditional kitchens, so getting creative with storage and appliances is a must.
