A Swedish Tiny House of 33sqm - 30minutes from Stockholm CC Sweden
I bought this tiny house back in 2015 – a year after I moved to Stockholm. It was a new development and I bought it just seeing the layout on photos, I got to make some small choices with the interior design like a brighter wooden floor, built in speakers in the kitchen from Sonos and a brighter choice of tiles in the bathroom.
The house ground level is 20sqm, and it has a 13sqm loft. The ceiling height is almost 6m in the living area and it has plenty of storage upstairs. The house has an entire side just made out of windows and sliding doors facing the patio, which gives you a feeling of the place being much larger than it actually is.
Almost all of my furnitures and decor are either selfmade, bought second hand, on sale or have some other sentimental value from a trip somewhere. It doesn’t have to cost a lot to make a home feel cohesive and cozy.
Even though the house is a one studio, the high ceiling and the loft gives you a sense of having separate rooms and it makes it feel much more spacious. The ceiling height on the loft is about 1,4m so it makes the most sense to use the space as a bedroom.
In a small space it’s important to choose your interior pieces wisely otherwise it’s a big risk of making it feel too cramped.
Knowing that I still went with my medium sized (160cm) bed, but I chose to cut the bottom of the bed frame off to make it rest on the floor, giving it more space on top of the bed allowing me to sit up straight in the bed but still have a proper bed frame.
To make it more personal however, I did choose to make my own headboard. I bought some boards and worked them with chains, hammers and stained them to make them look like driftwood.
I’m a huge fan of untreated wood, so when I saw raw wooden boxes at my fathers place of work just containing supplies for them to use, I asked if I could have some since they wouldn’t be saving them after using the supplies.
I always try to keep an eye out for other ways to use things then what it was originally intended for. One example is the picture I have framed in the photos above – It’s actually just an ad I saw in a magazine and I just really liked the monster in the woods, so I cut it out and framed it.
The bathroom is small but functional.
It has storage underneath the sink, built in lights in the mirror and spotlights in the ceiling. The shower doors can be closed in on itself to save space and has a dreamy rain shower head combo.
It also has floor heating to keep all cold tippy toes warm and cozy.
Getting the opportunity to own my very own little tiny house, it was important to me to really take advantage of the outdoor area.
When I bought the house and it was move-in-ready, it had nothing but grass outside around the house. Everything outdoor that ain’t grass, is built by me and my father.
I had it all mapped out in my head before even moving into the house.
I wanted a place where I could spend time with all of my friends outside no matter what we wanted to do and no matter how many we were.
The patio ended up being around 55-60sqm, making it almost twice the size of the house.
It’s divided into different areas for multiple purposes. Just beside the front door I made a BBQ/fire pit hang out with plenty of seating for everyone and with storage inside a bench, this place has sun from the morning until sundown. I also made a pergola to give som shade for the huge custom made log table giving seats for about 8-12 people with plenty of room on the table for games, food and drinks.
The pergola is also double purpose giving some privacy for the hot tub, which runs on fire wood. Next to the hot tub I made a small little shed giving more storage for all the outdoor cushions, mattresses and fire wood.
Besides all of that, I also thought it was important to have proper sun beds, a hammock, mood lighting and some plants.
