With more and more people exploring the minimalist lifestyle and moving in the direction of tiny homes, portable homes are swiftly gaining popularity. At Elite Portables, we offer portable buildings, granny flats and portable homes of various sizes depending on your needs. However, if you are exploring the option of portable homes for your tiny home lifestyle, our team of experts has put together some tips and tricks on how you can maximise space in your portable home.


Make Use of Convertible Furniture  

Bulky furniture such as beds, sofas and tables take up the most floor space in our homes. If you own or are opting for a smaller portable home, furnish your space with items that can be converted, expanded or contracted to serve multiple purposes such as a sofa bed. Another option is to use fold-away furniture that can be neatly flattened and stowed away when it isn’t being used.


Bring the Outside In

You can make use of structural elements such as skylights and large windows to bring natural light and the outside into your portable home to help make your space appear larger. With Elite Portables, you can work with our team to fully customise your portable home and make structural changes that fit your requirements.


Be Clever with Storage

One thing we all want more of in our homes but that also takes up the most space is proper storage. However, there are ways to maximise storage in your portable home without compromising on space. Make use of the walls in your home and space under furniture for smart storage options. Shelves can be built into the walls to provide vertical storage without creating clutter on the floor or at eye level. Beds, sofas and tables can also have storage built under them to make them multipurpose and so that things can be stored away neatly.


Use Light Colours for Interiors

You can easily personalise your portable home to suit your preferences. When you pick out the furniture, paint colours and textures for your home’s interiors, go for light colours. This will make the interiors of your portable home appear bigger and brighter.
