Tiny House in Scandinavian style

A transparent roof made of durable tempered glass will perfectly complement such a house. Furniture in such a room should be used light, for example, wicker chairs or small ottomans. For storing all the necessary things, narrow, elongated shelves made of light wood and glass are suitable.
Shabby chic room
For travelers who spend most of their lives on the road, this style is perfect. The furniture in the room is vintage and slightly sloppy. The mobile home is decorated with soft textiles - blankets, curtains, carpets. In such a room there is room for all the knickknacks bought on the road.

In a small building, it is worth placing only the most necessary furniture. All shelves and cabinets must be closed.
